R.I.P Miss Nicole. Time to rest.

This beautiful soul is Nicole Thi Sanabia along with her youngest daughter and her granddaughter. A woman who touched many hearts and has filled them to the brim with her love. Sadly on the morning of October 1st she was found unresponsive by her two youngest daughters. 

Nicole was born in Vietnam during the war, where she witnessed the destruction of her home, women being raped, and people tortured. Beyond the trauma of war she was born to a  mother who used her as a pawn for money and food. Wanting to escape the abuse of her mother she then ran away, living in the wilderness surviving off the land. After timelessly running, hiding, and dodging land mines, at the young age of 7 years old, she was finally rescued by what was known as the Saigon BabyLift, a rescue mission to save the children in South Vietnam.

Upon her arrival in the United States, she was adopted and then dedicated her life to the pursuit of love, acceptance, and admiration. Despite the struggle and disappointment she repeatedly endured, she always had faith. Faith that one day she would have family and be able to provide unconditional love to her children. And that she did, with every last bit of her. Her children became her world. She was the sun on a rainy day. Despite all of the trauma endured throughout her childhood, and life here in the United States she never gave up on being the best mother, and faithful friend she could be. 

 She devoted her life to God and spreading his love and sharing his word. Her doors where open to anyone who needed a hand and heart to anyone who needed warmth or a shoulder to cry on.

Although her death was unexpected, she made sure to let her daughters know that her one wish for them if she were to pass was for them to hold on to each other. Giving that her 2 eldest were on opposite sides of the country and the two youngest living with her, she wanted to make sure that her girls stuck together because they were all she had. 

We are asking for help with finances for temporary expenses so that we can assure that her two youngest are able to finish out their school year in their current home state. Her eldest has relocated from New York to Miami to pursue custody and provide for her family along with her sister from California. Please help us bless this family during such an unexpected and tragic event. Help us keep this family together and to achieve their mothers wish.

After 43 long years away from home, her daughters wish to release her ashes in her home town where she had wished to live her last years and to sleep her eternity. Thank you for your time and any contributions would be greatly appreciated.
