    Dear Nikle’s,
    You all are in my thoughts and prayers in the death of your Mom. I have many fond memories of growing up with all of you in Grand Forks and then re-connecting with your Mom and Dad when I went into the seminary.
    I always remember her special smile and always being so friendly and welcoming too.
    May her legacy of love and faith live on in all of you.

    Dear Nikle Family,
    I send my heartfelt sympathy to all of you. Your Mom and I shared many a cup of coffee and socialized in our earlier years. She was a good woman. God bless all of you.
