  1. Nickie was a great neighbor and friend during our years of living in Shannonwood. After we moved and I would be taking care of our condo she always greeted me with a smile and be interested in how Betty and I were doing as well as want to see pictures of our granddaughter. She will be missed.
    God Bless Her!
