Nicole was a great cook who made the world’s greatest Puerto Rican rice. She was an avid music lover and you couldn’t catch her without headphones. She was a hard laborer and was never afraid to work or help you. Nicole had a purely happy and resilient spirit and a contagious laugh that would have us in tears. Her heart was huge, and her greatest love was her children and her mom. She lives on through them and her family. She will be missed dearly. Please omit flowers, donations in Nikki’s memory are requested to her children. To share a memory or send a condolence, logon to: www.fifefuneralhome.com
