I remember playing softball with Nikki. She was such a sweet person and so very talented. I also had Nikki's mom in elementary school. The Wilson family are all great people! I'm so very sorry for this tragic loss. I'm praying that God's grace will get you thru the coming days, weeks, months and years as you see her beauty in those kids. I bet Nikki and my dad are discussing old softball days in heaven.
To the Crawford & Wilson Family, I am so sorry for you loss. I did not get the privilege of knowing Nikki but feel like I have known her for years, from all the wonderful things I have heard about her. My thoughts are with you all during this difficult time.
John and all of the families, my heart goes out to all.
Dick, Susan and Scott, We were all so sad to hear of the passing of Nikki. I remember her as being so sweet and shy. Our thoughts and Prayers are with you all. God Bless and Comfort you as the days go on.
May the God of all comfort help your family at this time. I took care of Leah a couple times. She was a brave young lady that I admired.
I am praying your family will experience peace from the Father of all compassion. Mary Lou Hoffman
To all of Nikki's family & friends, so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Nikki, but I can tell that she was a beauiful soul and well-loved. You will remain in my thoughts and prayers.
To the Wilson and Crawford families,
Words are inadequate for the loss you are feeling. From the moment we heard of Nikki's fight, we lifted her and your families up in prayer. Our sympathies go out to your families. The loss of Nikki is truly felt after growing up like a big family in Firestone Park. I can only imagine how many lives she touched in her years here on earth with her kind heart and unforgettable smile. She will be missed. God Bless.
Jen (Taylor) Zwick and family
To Dick, Susan, and Scott:
I am so sorry for your loss. I think of you often and will do so especially at this difficult time.
I was lucky enough to work with Nikki at the radio station in Akron. She always had a smile on her face. I'm sad to hear about the passing of my friend. I send prayers out to her family.
As someone in radio as well, it's sad to see one of your own leave us so young. I also recall fellow metal DJ's like the Mad Squirrel (Ken McCann, 2003, age 40) and the Sandman (Roderick Lucas, 2000, age 37). Prayers for the family and friends of Leah and for her to be in arms of our Savior.
You will be missed, I could not believe the news when I heard it yesterday. You were a great person and i'm sure a great mother and wife as well. You will be sadly missed.
We're so sorry for your loss,our thoughts a prayers are with you.
Dick, Susan and family: We are so terribly sorry for your loss. What a brave woman she was and she most certainly fought the good fight. This is a horrid loss for all of you. You have a very special family and there is no doubt that with all the love and support between you, you will somehow be able to deal with your pain from Nikki's loss. All of you are in our thoughts and prayers.
John, we were so sorry to hear of your wife's passing. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Richard and Joann Etter, Canton, Ohio
We were so very saddened and heart broken to hear of Nikki's passing. We have fond memories of Nikki especially during Garfield softball seasons! Please know you are in our prayers.

You were loved by so many and you loved so many back. I replay our late night talks in my head and remember how positive you remained no matter how you were feeling. You said things to me I will never forget and you are my inspiration to be positive, brave, strong, just be happy and truely live life because I saw you do it even when it was hard.
