Crazy, beautiful, one of a kind; RIP Nikki Sawley

We write this still in shock and distraught at the loss of our beautiful, unique and eccentric mother. There are no words that could ever be enough to describe the woman she was and the impact she had, not only in our lives, but our children's, family, friends and the people she met throughout her life.

She was the life and soul of any room she was in and she was the light aswell as the darkness.

She was a mother, a mimi, a daughter, sister, auntie, cousin, neice and friend. She was our mother, Councillor and best friend. The person we would laugh with, cry with and argue with. She was absolutely bonkers, she drove us round the bend and that is what we will all miss the most.

Life will never be the same and nothing that we do as a family will ever be complete without our mum by our side. She was the go to for everything in our lives, good and bad, she has the answers for everything, whether we wanted to hear them or not.

Our mum would make friends wherever she went and people would radiate towards her and her infectious, one of kind energy. No matter how she felt, she would always make the time to make anyone feel special and know their worth.

She had the balls and the courage to truly be herself, wherever she was, in any situation. She was honest, sometimes brutally, but never maliciously. She had anyone's back, she was there for anyone who needed her, for advice, for a laugh or to dish out a throat punch. She could make a stone happy without even trying.

My mum believed she was rich in life, she didn't have money and she didn't need it to have a good time, however, for the send off she truly deserves, any contributions are greatly appreciated.
