We are so sorry to hear about Niki's death. When Donna Scott messaged me about your loss, the first thing I thought about was when we were playing in the couples league and she would baby set with Stephen for us, and how much he enjoyed staying with her. Stephen just had a birthday Sat. and is now considered a man. He is 21 yrs. old now. We will keep you and your family in our prayers.
