“It is with a very sad and heavy heart that I share about the passing of beautiful Nicole Porciello…She was full of gentleness, kindness, beauty, and grace. And above all, what I remember about Nicole, is her great, big, all-encompassing LOVE for her son,” writes Lori Myles-Carullo. “He was the bright light of her life and I can’t even imagine what he must be feeling now that his Mama on earth has become his Mama Angel in Heaven.”
