    Lori, I have no words that properly express how sad I feel for you. Only God can give you the peace and solace that you so desperately need during this time of unimaginable sorrow. You are always in my prayers and thoughts and will always continue to be. Your two babies are always with you and watching over you. I truly believe that. You do not need to be strong now. Lean on God, your family and friends. We are all here for you for whatever you need. Nikki, I know you are safe and at peace with God and your brother. You deserve that. Rest easy, sweet soul.

    I remember Nikki as a very young girl. Only about 4 years old when she lived with us (my mom, Delores Bloodsworth) for a while here in Georgia. She was so sweet and precious. I’m so sorry this tragedy has happened! May you rest in peace and may all your family find solace at this time.
    With love from your cousin,
