Nicole and Alfonzo James Lee were united in marriage and produced two beautiful daughters, Ayanna Janelle and Sierra Nicole. The Lee Family resides in Brooklyn, New York, where they are surrounded by a neighborhood filled with loving and attentive family and friends.
Although Nicole was an only child, she was loved and connected to a plethora of cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. While they all loved Nicole, God loved her best and called her to eternal rest at the tender age of 35. Her untimely departure has left a gigantic hole in the heart of her mother, Portia, a tremendous abyss in the life of her husband and children, as well as a significant void in the minds of everyone whose life she has touched.
Nevertheless, when you gaze up into the sky at night and observe the stars shining bright, if you notice one blink or twinkle at you don’t be concerned or perplexed in view. It is just a signal sent through the night; Nicole wants you to know she is alright.
