She was always so kind and I credit her for my Great experience as a young adult which help me in my current career as an attorney. She sparked my interest when she got me a job as an intern every summer when I was attending high school and college. I was able to work for the mayor of Indianapolis, the Prosecutors Office and many other areas as a young adult. I’m very fond of her and her family. I am so sorry for her loss. My mother passed away this winter and so I’m sure they’re up in heaven chatting it up !

Mrs Nicholson sounds incredible: an honorary fire fighter, fighting for an American flag in every classroom, running politics and campaigns like a boss! She also raised an incredibly strong daughter like Phyllis! RIP

Ernestine was the organizer of the fun in our neighborhood from the backyard swimming pool and card parties to the not even close to competitive but always entertaining volleyball games. She felt more like an Aunt than a neighbor and her children are like cousins. I always have fond memories of Ernie and her entire family. Love to Ronnie and Phyllis.
