I'll miss you Nikki

Tonight at 8:30 p.m., Nikki Malay stopped breathing. The cancer had spread up her spinal cord and was blanketing her brain, slowly shutting down the vivacious friend that we all knew and loved. We will say good bye to her in a way that is only fitting for her outgoing personality. Before she passed away she asked her brother Ryan to throw a big party, a celebration. I already know it will be loud, fun, bittersweet and we will all try to live up to Nikki's big personality. We'll miss you Nikki.

I have chills....
That message reminds me all too much of one I typed about 9 months ago.

Only time can heal.

Jane,
You are such a great friend to me. I want to thank you in advance for the support I know you will provide to me in the coming months. Stay just the way you are. You are the light. :)

I went to high school with Nikki. She has been on my mind since I heard of her passing. My heart goes out to her family and friends. Do you know if there if a fund set up in her name? You can contact me at stokerfarley@gmail.com.

I just found out a few weeks ago that Nicki had passed. We were in Jr. High and High school together. Nicki was such a sweet girl. I found out that I was in stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma on May 5th 2006. I am winning the battle so far. I wish that more people were as fortunate as I was.
We all will miss you Nicki.

I just heard about Nikki's passing today. I knew her since we were 5 and in Mrs. Vandenbark's Kindergarten class.
