Honoring the life of Patrice Jones (Nikki)

On December 28th, Patrice Jones, better known as Nikki to family and friends was rushed to the hospital seeking immediate care. During her short time in the hospital, her health declined rapidly.  The family continuously checked for updates of her condition and assured her that she was not alone. When she stopped answering the phone, her daughter, Destiny Montgomery discovered that Nikki's condition had taken a turn for the worse. 

Nikki was an independent business owner, digital marketer, and Supermom! She loved spending time with family, working with the youth, and helping out when and wherever she could. She built great relationships with everyone around her and had a way of uplifting everyone's spirits. 

Nikki has one child (Destiny) whom she devoted her all to being a great mother and role model for. Destiny is a college student majoring in Biology Pre Med with hopes of one day becoming a doctor. She is devastated and heart broken by her mother's death. 

We hope to give Destiny the greatest lasting memory of Nikki by helping her raise money to fund her mother's funeral so that she can properly honor her mother's life and lay her to rest. It is also our intention to step in and use any additional monies to help Destiny finish her education. 

We pray that with all the giving hearts in the world we can raise the finances to lay Nikki to rest and give Destiny what she needs to finish making her mother proud.  

We ask that you please keep our family in your thoughts, hearts and prayers, as we struggle with this unexpected and devastating loss. 

Any and everything provided will be appreciated and considered a blessing.
