I am still at a loss for words after learning of Nikkis passing. She was an extraordinary woman full of strength, compassion, and with an incredible sense of humor. My thoughts are with the Mankos family during this very difficult time.

Nikki was a kind sole. She was beautiful in and out. She was a sweetheart! I was so very saddened to hear of her passing. She fought a long battle. But was always smiling when you saw her out and about. I send my thoughts and prayers to her boys and the whole Mankos family.Tami Herman (NLHS classmate)

To Nikkis family,I was deeply saddened to learn of Nikkis passing. My memories of Nikki stem from her high school days at NLHS. She was vibrant, kind, generous, and just a beautiful soul from within and of course her outer beauty. Back then you knew she was special and her popularity did not change her. She loved life, appreciated everything, and was always humble. May Nikki Rest In Peace and may her family know she is forever in your hearts and memories. God bless you all. I loved Nikki! ️ Renee Evans -Nikkis English Teacher
