To the Chalkus family,
I am so very sorry and shocked by Nicena's passing.
We were child hood buddies, I only lived 1 block from her then. I have not seen or talked to Nicena for awhile, but she was a dear friend and always in my heart.
She had come to Missouri to visit me a few times and we always had a great time on her visits.

I will deeply miss her.
