She was the hardest working person I’ve ever met! She had a way of making everyone feel special and she always seem to know what to say, and how to say it, to make you feel like it was going to be alright! Gone but never forgotten! You were always the wind beneath my wings!! We will meet again my dear Mother......your loving son, Jessie Nickes
