@nikkidelamotte was/is a way for good,& a way for change. Never ever angry,snarky, always bringing the best out even when the story was hard. Her msgs/dm’s/rt&likes were an extension of her love&her light. It’s winter now, she touched all of us, knowingly or not. We are less.

I am heartbroken to hear the news about @nikkidelamotte. I was privileged to edit her work for @ClevelandMag during her time as a freelancer. She was a talented journalist who approached every story with enthusiasm and care. It is a huge loss to our community.

Journalism tends to attract cranky people, or make them that way. But @nikkidelamotte was a rare exception. I’ve never known another who seemed so unapologetically committed to using writing to prove that people are basically good. This is tragic.

I’m going to miss my friend and colleague @nikkidelamotte. She had the biggest heart and the most genuine spirit. She had hundreds of friends, but always made you feel like she was your best friend. Cleveland has lost one of its best writers and an even better person. pic.twitter.com/pZ6QUMYWgd

Nikki Delamotte was a true, earnest champion for the people and the local businesses of Cleveland at a complicated moment in the city's history.
She brought a new era of Cleveland to life on the page with a style all her own. Her talents lifted us up. Heartbreaking…

The last thing Nikki posted was a tribute to her grandma and other veterans.
