Remembering Nicole

Loosing Nicole is a great loss. I appreciate having had the chance to get to know her, Neil and the kids. I will always remember her bright smile, her infectious laugh and our long and engaging talks about our families and kids. Neil, Brendan, Brooke, Brody and Braxton...you will also be in our thoughts. Our best wishes are with you. Please take care...Aimee-Javier-Mateo and Lucia (Maple Valley, WA.)

Nicole - A friend that will be missed

I was a friend of Nicole's when she and her family lived in Maple Valley, WA. We just learned tonight of her passing when it appeared in a local paper and a friend alerted me to her tragic passing. We now live in Spokane, WA. So very sad. Nicole was always a free spirit whose smile could light up a room. I enjoyed her friendship very much. I hope that her spirit will continue to live in her four beautiful children. Neil, take care of yourself and those kids. We are thinking of you here in Washington.

Nicole

As a friend and former neighbor of Nicole, I was very upset to hear the news of her passing. I always expected to see her again, and will miss our regular phone calls. I've just read the posting on comments of "bullheadedness" apparently made by her father during the service. I think this banter would have generated some comments from Nicole as well. The thoughts of this brought a smile to my face. So thank you. I can hear her now! :-)

Bullheadedness - a term of affection

I am quite sure that this father was speaking with affection when he referred to his daughter as "bullheaded." I didn't perceive this in a negative manner at all. I think a large majority of us have uttered those same words about a loved one before - but it was said in love. Get real and stop taking everything so seriously! I'm willing to bet that she was a "daddy's girl" and this "bullheadness" will always be one of his fondest memories.

Nicole's Father

Bullheaded? This seems like a strange choice of words to apply to one's daughter who has just died a terrible death. The connotations are very unflattering to Nicole. Was this deliberate on the part of the father, or was he just not thinking? If he was not thinking clearly, he used a very unfortunate turn of phrase.

Nicole's father

While I was present at the "celebration" of Nicole's life, I was in the foyer behind closed doors with 5 yr old Brody, Nicole and Neil's son as he was having a small melt down and did not hear Sid's eulogy. I propbably would have taken offensive but after having spent some time in Sid's company I realized that his crass ways supercede his sensitivities. I will remember Nicole and Neil's daughter, Brooke reading her piece instead.

I know you were not at the

I know you were not at the service, so unfortunately you are not aware, and for that I understand... The service was a celebration of her life, her husband insisted. The people who spoke about Nicole spoke about her and her joy for life. If you had heard the previous story her father had told, this comment from him would have made more sense. He spoke about how, at an event at which they were working by collecting fare money from patrons, Nicole insisted that a family should not have to pay. Her father heard the arguing and came to help. The man said to her father, "She won't take my money!" and Nicole's father said, "Well, you heard her..." and then came the next comment, that you see above. Please remember that when a person passes and you celebrate their life, you celebrate all the best parts of them, and for Nicole, apparently, that was a really good part!

Sounds like a father who

Sounds like a father who knew his daughter well enough to appreciate all her attributes, even bullheadedness. Still, it wouldn't suprise me at all to know that he wasn't thinking clearly. As you pointed out...he's just lost his daughter. No point in nitpicking him, is there?
