I think of you often dear Nicole! We never met in person in this world but I will see you one day in Heaven!! You left such an impression in my life and I often brag to others about our special connection. I pray that your family and friends are doing well and that their lives are filled with happy memories of you.,

Happy Birthday! This might be cheesy, but I'll still do it. Any place I can connect with you, no matter how weird... you are always thought about and I miss you so much!

Another heavenly birthday with love, I will never forget you!!

Nicole Kimber is my sister's best friend and she's my birthday buddy. Not a day goes by where I don't think of her. She was a sweet person and always friendly. So, I now salute my birthday along with hers. She will always be missed, but never forgotten!

Hi, My name is Matt and I am a member of the Head & Neck Cancer Forum at the Cancer Survivor Network. In 2013 I came across this post by Nicole (nkimber, in the forum). I found it to be very heartfelt and I have been reposting it back to the top of the H&N forum every January. Many H&N members were very fond of Nicole. Thank You January1, 2011 – 3:17 pm Intensions For 2011 After a very inspiring yoga class this afternoon, I began to think about my intentions for 2011... in some ways a little more strict than resolutions, but in some ways a little more relaxed! Instead of vowing to do something all year, and then giving up when you break a rule, I think of intentions more as something you can reflect on every day, and even make strides to improve upon them. If you don't quite realize one of your intentions on any given day, just think about how to make it true the next! So, I wanted to share mine... open for comment or suggestions of course... maybe by throwing these out there I will do a better job of holding myself accountable to them :) 1. I intend not to be discouraged. Undoubtedly this year will bring many challenges, but I am a tough girl..... I will overcome them! I cannot let myself be discouraged, but rather take everything that comes at me and use it as a catalyst for improvement. Improvement of my health, my medical team, my daily diet and activities, my holistic healing team, and my strength. 2. I intend to show those whom I love how much they mean to me every chance I get. This experience has brought into light those of my family and friends who can be counted on, and who cannot. It is very strange blessing in disguise! I need to show those who I care about, and who care about me, how much I love them. Being there for them through these difficult times is just as important as them being there for me. 3. I intend to share my blessings with others. It may be small on some days, and large on others, but I want to do a better job of taking the blessings I have been given, and using them to help others. What does this mean? I don't know exactly, but I do know where to start. Continuing to be a positive face every time I visit the hospital, trying to put smiles on the faces of others who are going through difficult times, and finding a way to help others who are not as fortunate are a start. Hopefully this intention will blossom into something amazing over the course of 2011. 4. I intend to have increasing faith. I do have faith, but as many of you know, it is hard not to question what is happening. I intend to start each day off with a conversation with God. Hopefully this conversation brings me a better understanding of not only what is happening, but of what I need to do to realize all of my other intentions! I will keep praying that the right path comes to me :) I have a feeling that these will evolve as the year goes on, but I will do my best to reflect upon them every day and make them come true! I wish all of you the very best 2011... feel free to share your intentions too!!! Lots of hugs, Nicole

I took my daughter and her best friend to an event last night, and as I watched them have the time of their lives, I began to cry..... It brought back so many childhood memories of us. It's hard still for me that I can't call or text you or Facebook message you to share these moments with you. Love and miss you so much!
Posted by Paula Ruiz on 10th August 2016

The strangest thing. This morning I was on the way into Virginia beach with my wife and son and for some random reason I remembered an argument I had with Nicole all the way back in our junior year if high school regarding if it would be much different to live on the east coast. It seems petty and certainly extremely random but for some reason I remembered her saying that as a surfer I should make sure to go surf on the east coast before finalizing my opinion. I have know ideahow this came about in my head and how it would be relivent to anything at all, loll . Strange part was that while chatting with my wife I randomly saw a web update in my email regarding Nicole I noticed today was the anniversary of her passing, I felt a sad calm come over me.miss you Nicole. Save a spot in the buffet line for me in heaven. I gonna be hungry when I get there if this economy docent perk up soo

Remembering your birthday celebration from 4 years ago. It was snowing like crazy and during blizzard conditions you drove on Rt. 70 at 20mph for an hour or 2 behind a snow plow (can't exactly remember how long it was, but it was pure dedication) to make it to your surprise birthday dinner. Miss you much!
Posted by Elayne Melton on 12th January 2015
Another birthday in heaven. I am thinking about you today and remembering how I used to call you and say, "is the right day" and you would laugh, that special laugh! I love and miss you Nicole. Auntie Elayne
Posted by Susi Clark on 9th August 2014
I will never forget the time we've had together. I will never forget the last moment that I saw you. I will never forget this terrible Tuesday in 2011. I will never forget YOU! I will always think about you! You have inspired us all! You are so loved from everyone! You are so missed! But for those, I know, you will always be with us! I love and remember you, each and every day! Wish you were still here!!!!!!!!!
Posted by Robyn Williams on 9th August 2014
The saying is.... It gets easier with time, but I'm still waiting for that to happen. I was driving down the street the other day and these little kids were clearly up to no good, I saw water guns and rope, my first thought was I was annoyed with them so I stopped my car to tell them to knock it off...... Well before I could, a memory of us probably doing the same kind of thing jumped into my head and I began to cry...... I truly hope that each of my children have somebody in their lives as special as you were, and still are, to me! Love and miss you tons! XXOOXX Love, Hollywood :)

You are always on my mind. I love you infinity. Auntie Elayne

The most terrible day of the year. I love and miss you every day, Kiki. These three years without you have been emptier, duller, and sadder and there remains a hole that can't ever be filled. Things still happen and my very first thought is to call you about it. I'll love you always, Keeks. So much.
Posted by Muthu Muthiah on 9th August 2014
This is the day I hate the most, Nicole. The day you left us. I think about you all the time and wish you were here. I know I'll see you again, wherever you are, but till then, I'll miss you dearly. Love you, my friend.

Hi Nicole- don't quite know what to say, other than you have been such a great friend to so many people. We lost touch after high school, but the time that we had was truly awesome. Thank you for everything.
Posted by Muthu Muthiah on 13th April 2014
Just thinking about you again, Nicole. Saw a cheesy movie about California, which I'm sure you would have made fun of. Still ,and always will, miss you my friend.

Just found out today of your passing. My favorite times at St.Bonaventure hands down were with you and Pato. Oh my gosh how you made me laugh with your funny faces! I did meet up with you in San Fran and so sorry I didn't stay in touch. You had a light brighter than the sun Nicole and I will miss you dearly.

The positive impact you have made on us cant even be described in words. Miss you every day!!
