    Nicole was a very dear friend of mine. She was my best friend. She always called me like her “Little sister”. I love this girl so much! She was a very special and unique girl indeed. She had a smile that would just lightn your whole day up. She was very humble and overall A very amazing young women. My condenses are with her mother and father. Im extremely sorry for your loss. As well as the rest of the family and friends. She was the most amazing mother to her son Kia. I did not get the chance to meet Bentley but I know she loved him as well. She is looking down on as from heaven above, & I know that shes is another one of gods angels. May you rest In paradise Ms.Kandi . I love you women <3

    I only ever got to meet this young woman a small handful of times in my life but as we were both residents of Sedro and had a lot of the same friends our paths crossed a few times. I knew her as Kandi but then so did a lot of people. I am truly sad for the loss for her family and other loved ones and will keep them in my thoughts and prayers. I did not know this girl very well but it’s still a terrible loss to this community. Rest in peace, Nicole.

    I’m deeply saddened to learn of Nicole’s passing. I remember her as a kind young woman and it was a privilige to have her as a student. She and her family will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
