Stephen and Mark, I am so very sorry about Mom. I wish I had known but she was very good at keeping quiet. Knew in my heart when I could not reach her by phone. My what good times we had over the years. My life without her in it would have been bland. I loved her so much and miss her so much. Will see her in heaven where she is probably tuned into QVC! Hugs to all of the family. Nicki,s BFF, Patty

To the Family of Nicki. Nicki and I met thru a rental of her and Bob's home in Toms River back in 2006. We immediately bonded and had many fun trips to Cape May, the ferry and evening staying at their trailer in South Jersey. I last talked to her in May. Then I realized that I had not seen her on FB and found her Obituary. As you know, Nicki was a wonderful and fun loving person. We had many laughs and spent a lot of time together when she lived in TR. I am so very sorry for your great loss. She loved all of you and especially her 3 grandchildren.
