Nicole loved and cherished her family and friends, and had a particularly special bond with her mom Celeste and her sister Meghan. Nicole loved spending time with her mom and sister and showered them with gifts and tokens of her love. She made it a point to go all out for holidays and birthdays to make sure they knew they were loved. Anyone who knew Nicole, knew of the bond she shared with her sister Meghan. While, Nicole was the older sister, she and Meghan were equally protective of one another and they shared many common interests including a love of fashion, art, fine dining, and traveling. Nicole and Meghan frequently took vacations together and traveled all over to many places making new memories including Miami, FL! No matter what one sister was doing, you could always count on the other sister to be right there. Truly, Nicole and Meghan were not only sisters, but best friends.
Additionally, Nicole Danielle loved Chris Brown, Judge Judy, but most of all her family and children. Not only did Nicole Danielle give her heart to the Lord at a young age, she fostered a relationship with the Lord that guided her throughout her life until she got to be in His presence on February 20, 2022.
