Nikki and Jodie are my "Little Sisters" of so very many years ago.
Jodie was the rock - steady and realistic.
Nikki was the sprite - flitting here and there, always wanting and needing more.
My sincere condolences to her family. The time on Earth was not easyfor Nikki. I hope she has now found peace.
