R.I.P. Nikki Harris (1970-2009)


The blogging world has lost one of its own... Anika Harris Vines, aka "Nikki" or "Nikki Harris" on Facebook. She was so full of life, humor, and was just a really cool person. She could always make me laugh. We never met in person but, I always felt as if I knew her. She made you feel at home, like an old friend. She lived in the ATL but, she was actually a Brooklyn girl. You would have never known it though... Nikki had that southern girl charm.

I could be passionately angry about some injustice and railing away at the powers that be on one of my blog posts and she'd leave a hilarious comment at the end of my post that would just bust me up and send me into gales of laughter... that was Nikki and that's why we all loved her. She was just so real and so cool that way. I'm really gonna miss her.

I'm just happy she is no longer suffering. I couldn't think of anything else to say... that was just Nikki in a nutshell. I'm gonna think of her every time I view a sunrise. She so looked forward to them and now, she is bathed in eternal sunrises.

Rest in peace, dear Nikki.

I'm gonna miss her. She had the ability to make people laugh. She suffered through this illness and never complained. I never met her but I just spoke with her 3 days ago. I told her that we'd hang out once she got out of the hospital. Unfortunately, that did not happen.

It's fitting that her last Facebook post was her video of the sunrising. She was a bright as the light on that post. She'll never be forgotten

RIP Nikki Harris.

I don't know if she can see it from where she is at now, but I went to her facebook and left her a nice message. I believe God will make sure she gets all the messages from her loving friends. If she was suffering badly then maybe she is in a better place now.

Nikkie was an ex-flame of mine. I just found out today like years later that she passed. I am very sorry to hear this and yes she was too young. Wow. I am really at a loss for words. She was a good person and I pray she is in the light of the eternal sunrise now. Wow Nikki - God Bless you. Seems like yesterday I was spending time with you in Avondale Estates and you were completely full of life. You cooked for me. And we had good times together. You are greatly missed. -DC
