One of my bestest friends, Cody, was a great friend to Nikki over the past 20+ years. Cody was responsible for assembling a search team within moments of Nikki being reported as missing. Cody was diligent - the kind of friend every woman needs. Cody put her needs aside for 4 months, and relentlessly assembled, hiked, scoured, hunted, reported,coordinated, and beautifully represented Nikki as family and friends went searching and gathering in hopes of finding Nikki safe and sound - somewhere.
Cody - a "got your back" kind of friend everyone needs. In fact, Cody helped me through and beyond my cancer journey, sticking by my side, regardless.
Nikki - Cody loves you, aches for your hurt, aches for your family. Be safe Nikki, and please comfort Cody - let her know that her efforts were not in vain.
