Today has been devastating for the cleveland.com newsroom, where Nikki represented the highest ideals of what we do, the very best of who we are. She worked tirelessly to provide Greater Cleveland with insights on the best places to eat and drink and enjoy precious leisure hours. She told the stories of fascinating people our audience would not otherwise meet. More than anything, she was kind, in an age when we need kindness. She never failed to leave an impression. Our hearts ache tonight at the loss of our dear friend and colleague.
