I remember the day I heard about her passing like it was yesterday. It was a Monday morning. I had just finished breakfast with a friend of mine at the Val-Brook Diner. On my way home I was checking my messages and Facebook. That's when I found out that she was gone. The status updates and the tribute posts kept coming. And that's when you started to realize how special she was and how much she meant to so many.
Anika Harris, who simply went by "Nikki" in the blogosphere, was more than just a good read. I was fortunate enough to be cool with her offline. We would exchange emails where we talked about everything from big city v/s country living, to the latest music to her beloved Dallas Cowboys. She even talked about moving to New York one day and proceeded to challenge me to a game of pool when she got here. I rmemeber, leaving her a message on the virtual obituary telling her I'm going to hold her to that game. I just hope she is keeping the table warm until we meet again.
