Nikki Hergenroeder/Verrengia (Coach H)

“I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I’ll never part. God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart…” author unknown

I remember when Nicole came ready to cheer at a basketball game, as my captain, and as we were warming up I looked up at Nicole in the air and noticed she forgot to wear her ‘spankies’. I said, “Nicole, did you forget something?” She commented, “Yep, but it’s all good. No one will notice, Coach.” I replied, “Nicole, you’re our flyer”. She replies back, “Oh, right. I better go call my mom!” This was a running joke between her and I that whole year. After every line she would say, “Coach, it’s all good!” Such a fun, loving girl.
