    I believe I only met you once or twice, but I worked with Niki at Girls Inc. Niki was truly a hot ticket. She would always have the craziest/most hilarious stories. She was a kind soul who fought hard but loved harder. Niki always talked about you and Kristen (and her grandsons) constantly. I just want to say how sorry I am for your loss. The world lost an amazing woman. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Thank you all so very much for you words of sympathy and support. My family is truly appreciative.
    I would like to send out a special request to Donna Memory Stella to please contact me. I would very much like to hear from you and hear some stories of my dad and perhaps get some photos of him. My boys would love to see what their grandfather looked like and to know him through you. My mother loved him always.
