Fly, Fly little wings, Fly beyond Imagining, The softest cloud, the whitest dove, Upon the wind of heavens love, Past the planets and the stars, Leave this lonely world of ours, Escape the sorrow and the pain, and fly again
Nicole was born with Spinal Bifida and was paralyzed, but she did not let her shortcomings stop her from enjoying life. Even during the most difficult times of hospital stays and sickness, there was always a smile for family and friends. As we celebrate the life of Nicole, we reflect upon the simple pleasures in life that she enjoyed and shared with others such as trips to Pizza Hut, reading and writing, computers, movies, gardening, and animals. Unable to speak or hear, Nicole quickly learned the art of sign language and enjoyed teaching others her skills in communication.
Nicole is survived by her parents Steve and Melanie. On her mothers side of the family, she is also survived by her grandmother Lane Willard Turnbull, her aunts and uncles Mary Turnbull Youngs, Eugene and Kim Turnbull Jr., Jody and MaryAnn Turnbull, Lisa Hall, and several cousins.

On her fathers side of the family, she is survived by her grandmother Shirley Hart Absalon, her aunts and uncles Clover and Jeff Forsythe, Robin and Robert Ordway, Krista Absalon , Jamie Absalon and Amy Lynde, and several cousins.
