I met Nik and Penny at the Isla Vista house, where I was a frequent visitor, as my kids and the Lebell kids were second-generation friends. They witnessed our young people grow from sweet babies to toddlers, through all the phases to their new adulthood. It has been a delight to have you as a part of our family, Nik, through this wild ride. I'm grateful that you had Penny, and that she had you. She keeps your sweet music alive.

Dear Nik,
I want to express my deepest gratitude to you for all the love, confidence, collaboration, creativity, spirit, genius, and kindness you shared with my dear friend, Penny, me(the few times we were together), and everyone. I promise to strive towards being a bit more like you and will carry your humble gentle spirit with me in that way. Have a grand Celebration. I know you will be there.

Aw, I just learned about his transition. It's hard to imagine Nik without Penny, Penny without Nik. You guys were 2 peas in a pod. I haven't seen either of you for well over 10 years, but remember fondly the time we spent together in the late 90's after I moved back to SB from Tokyo.

Love you guys both, very much, and my deepest condolences to you, Penny. Nik was a man ahead of his time that left the scene before his time.

Whenever I visited the studio Nik was always so fully engaged with the music he was creating. He is an example for me. He had dedication and love for his art and had the courage to follow it wherever it might take him. I miss knowing that he is here.

Nik was such a gentle man. He was very kind and patient with me when I stayed with him and Penny a few years back, showing me his Capybara systems and answering lots of questions I had. I liked him immensely. And he will be much missed by many.
Love to Penny xx

My Beloved Nik
My dear beloved Nik passed away Sunday evening, March 13, 2016. He left so sweetly, simply stopped breathing after his courageous battle with head neck and lung cancer. We just lost such a sweet Soul, and the world just lost another great musician. At some point in the future we will plan a memorial to honor his life and music. He played with John Sykes, Blue Murder, Jimmy Page, Barry Palmer, Roy Harper, amongst others. I will miss him so much. We've been married since 1994. It is nearly unfathomable right now to think of life without him.
