I was a passenger in a vehicle driving back to NJ on I-95 in the very spot where only four hours before Nicole's accident is reported to have occurred. I can attest that I-95 was a disaster to drive and covered in black ice. There were multiple vehicle accidents seemingly every half mile. I feel that the roadway should have been closed down because of the conditions. This is a tragedy that caused Clark and the Marzano family and friends to lose a very special girl. My prayers go out to the family and all that were lucky enough to have known Nicole.

My daughter plays club soccer for the University of Maryland and a few weeks ago they played the University of Delaware. When the game was over my daughter said she saw somebody on the field from Clark. She recoginized Nicole from the many years they played soccer and basketball against each other as we are from Cranford.. They talked to each other for a good while and my wife and I left impressed with Nicole as a wonderful young lady. Our hearts go out to the family and friends and we will continue our prayers for God's comfort in their lives.
