Very sorry to hear this Oct 3, 2014

Like many others, I did not know Nicole apart from reading her posts in forums, but I greatly admired her, not only for her opinions but for her strong personality and professional efficiency.
I shall be among many who will miss her.

there is little I can add Oct 3, 2014

There is little I can add to previous comments.
I never had the pleasure of meeting Nicole in person, but I always enjoyed reading her contributions in forum discussions.
Professional, witty, sharp. In essence, a great mind.
My condolences to her family and friends.
D.

Nicole was an excellent contributor, here and elsewhere. She helped a lot of people, and I always enjoyed seeing her add her take on things to a discussion. She will be missed.

Such sad news Oct 3, 2014

She was one of the big ones, the same league as Hans G. Liepert.
Thanks Nicole, for lots of clever contributions.

My sincere condolences to her family.

Nicole was a fighter Oct 3, 2014

She fought for good writing, good pay for fellow wordsmiths and much more. She also stood up for her adopted homeland, the land of Mark Twain, Herman Melville, Henry James, Ezra Pound, Walt Whitman, William Faulkner.
And she went to bat for me too. http://www.proz.com/forum/prozcom_suggestions/181780-possibility_of_multipl

Sincere condolences Oct 3, 2014

the sadest news I had to read for quite a while. I was wondering, why I did not see any posts from her for a while, intended to have a look at her profile this morning and was absolutely shocked. She'll be missed.

Nicole Oct 3, 2014

was a brilliant translator and astute businesswoman whose comments and contributions were always fitting and polite and a great help to our community as a whole. I will miss her.

All the very best to her loved ones in their hour of bereavement.

Sad news indeed. We had some entertaining debates over the respective merits of AE and BE vocabulary, orthography and punctuation, but we had fun:

Sad news indeed. Hard to believe.
Nicole was one of the few professionals making a constructive, competent and interesting contribution to Proz and Kudoz. Reading it was fun, too:

Skills, knowledge, professionalism, personality, helpfulness Oct 4, 2014

I was in touch with her only for a few minutes regarding a scammer that was and I fear still is targeting me and she had warned me about his (I guess they are male) covering letter and stolen CV attempting to impersonate me (a poor attempt indeed I can say, as she and a few others have shown me the fake applications).

Other than that, I really only knew her from the forums where she was a giant, a few characteristics of whom I have tried to enumerate above.

I was in touch with her only for a few minutes regarding a scammer that was and I fear still is targeting me and she had warned me about his (I guess they are male) covering letter and stolen CV attempting to impersonate me (a poor attempt indeed I can say, as she and a few others have shown me the fake applications).

Other than that, I really only knew her from the forums where she was a giant, a few characteristics of whom I have tried to enumerate above.

Astrid once, however, was in a scrape with Word not opening, having to deliver within an hour, and Nicole actually did it and told her what her to do in a number of her usual "Why make many words when the same thing can be said efficiently in just a few words" style steps. What can I say? Astrid did meet her deadline after that.

I call that helpful, focused and efficient.

Rest in peace, dear Nicole. You were one of the good ones indeed. Your spirit is guaranteed to live on.
