Nikita, I watched you grow from an energetic 4 year-old cute baby girl into a brilliant singer and Sunday School attendee. It’s been some years since I saw you but the memories of your smiling face and your beautiful voice still lingers as if it were yesterday. Although I wasn’t near, I continued to follow your life’s journey along with your precious baby girl through your mom’s and your posting. In your short life, you’ve blessed many and I’m sure your legacy will be forever etched in their hearts. Even from a little girl, you were ready to help others in need. You were truly an angel on earth. Your beautiful smile will forever be in my memories. You’ve earned your wings beautiful Nikita. Soar with the angels in God’s kingdom. Say hello to my beautiful Edsel! Peaceful sleep sweet girl! You’ll never be forgotten.
To Crystal, Dominic, Shawn, Angelina and other family members, my deepest condolences. I pray God’s peace be upon you and His strength be your strength. I’m your family, friend, sister, forever!
