Nikki, anything i write now seems inadequate to express the breadth and braveness of your soul...how deeply you touched us all. goddess how you will be missed! i am so grateful to have your memory in mind to honor, in the way i am with every human being on this planet. love to you and yours, Na
While I did not have the good fortune & privilege of personally knowing Nikki as she gradually emerged from the toddler stages into the amazing woman she had become, I know that she was fondly embraced by all who knew her, highly regarded, well respected & singled out as a lady sought after by many for her positive impact on their lives & those of all with whom she came in contact. She will be sorely missed. My heart goes out to Aldith, Bob, Nikki’s siblings, loved ones & many friends. Nikki’s life, boundless energy & all of her achievements will never be forgotten. Aldith & Bob may derive comfort & a deep sense of pride knowing in their hearts that Nikki was a daughter that made them proud & it was through their love & example that she became an absolutely awesome woman.
Nikki, you were such a beautiful person, inside and out. I am so blessed and lucky to have been able to have you as a friend for nearly 3 decades. I will always remember your laugh, your smile, and your quick wit. Rest in peace knowing you were loved by so many and you touched countless lives.
My heartfelt condolences to the Scott/Asselbergs family.
I did not know Nikki well enough, but she is indelibly etched in so many images I have from the Amherst years.
I remember her as a kind soul and a rare light, a woman of big ideas and gentle strength who could simultaneously brighten and anchor a room.
She seemed timeless. Part of my shock in hearing of her passing was that I couldn’t even picture her aging. Nikki had a shine you didn’t need to spend much time with to see. It was just there. And I am touched to see it, still there, in all the photos of the life she has lived, the lovely tributes from the people she has forever changed.
To family and friends: May you receive comfort in this time of sorrow.
