My heart breaks. I got new yesterday that Nicole (a girl I grew up with and went to high school with) passed away yesterday.

Nicole and I played softball together when we were in elementary school. She was on my team and we always called her "Shorty" since both of us were named Nicole. We grew apart as the years went on but still talked during high school. I haven't seen Nicole since April of last year. I don't think Nicole met a stranger! She always had a huge smile on her face and knew how to have fun! She lit up a room when she walked in! She touched so many lives with that beautiful smile!
When I first heard the news I was in shock. Thinking that this couldn't be happening. I was angry. Wondering why? I ache for her parents, her best friends and everyone that knew her. I haven't been that close to her in awhile but it is tearing me up inside I can't imagine what it is doing to the people that were so close to her. I can't imagine getting that phone call. But it could happen at any moment. We are not promised tomorrow so why do we act like it? If you care about someone tell them, if you love someone tell them...don't let another day go by.
I am just praying that God gives everyone strength to get through this.
Nicole will be missed by so many!
I am heartbroken...

So sorry for your loss Nicole. It is always sad to hear things like this especially to someone so young with so much more life to live. I pray your heart heals quickly so you are able to remember your friend with happiness in your heart. Stacie P

I am still in shock about this I think! I just can't believe it happened. Nicole was the sweetest girl, and you're right, she never met a stranger and her presence just lit up a room. I can't imagine what her family and close friends must be going through right now. :(
