Nikki expressed herself as follows: “The past year has been the longest, toughest and saddest 365 days for me as you were not by my side. May the afterlife be kind to you. I miss you so much, Little bro! 1 year has passed since you left, but my heart is still wounded for you. A year doesn’t seem like such a long time but without you here it has felt like an eternity. Time is supposed to be a healer but after a year it’s still as painful as the first day.”
She added, “No matter what I do to move on from this pain, deep down inside I will always know that I’ll never get to hug you again. Brother, you taught me to be strong but sorry I’m letting you down. I can never be strong to accept that you are no longer here. A family will never get over losing their loved ones. It doesn’t matter how long ago or how old the loved one was or how they died. The family lives with this pain every moment of their remaining lives. Goodbye dear brother you deserve eternal rest, You cared so much for one and all to have you I was blessed. 4.05.2021.”
