Nicole Michelle Lee, a loving daughter; sister; aunt; cousin; granddaughter; friend; and mentor, was in a fatal car accident on Saturday, January 26, 2008. A 2007 graduate from Magruder High School in Derwood, MD and a freshman engineering major from Virginia Tech, she was an inspiration to so many as a leader, volunteer, and community member. She proved that a short life is not an incomplete life. The lives she touched will never be the same, and each day without her is a day where we will mourn our loss and remember our good fortune for having had her in our lives. She will be in our hearts forever, because to know Nicole Lee, was to love Nicole Lee.
