Nicole touched everyone she met with her vivacious personality and million-dollar smile. She was fiercely loyal to her family and friends.

She was a well-rounded academic athlete who volunteered on a regular basis. Her motto in life was “Carpe Diem” and she truly seized the day by doing everything she enjoyed. Stephen and Nicole loved to travel and to try adventurous activities. They were a perfect match. The two celebrated their love on their wedding day, August 20, 2021. It was the happiest day of their lives.
