Family and friends release balloons in Lindsay Nichols' memory

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Family and friends continue to remember a 22-year-old woman gunned down ten days ago in Jesup. Lindsay Nichols was killed after breaking off a relationship with a local radiologist. After shooting and killing her, Doctor Timothy Roses then turned the gun on himself .

Saturday afternoon, Nichols' family and friends gathered at her Waterloo gravesite with hundreds of balloons in hand. 321 -- to be exact, marking the day Nichols died.

Her family members appreciate the support they've received over the last week. Nichols' father says the hardest time is at the end of the day -- when he's locking up the house, knowing she won't be coming home. Her aunt, Brenda Miller, said even though they've had time to let it sink in, their loss isn't getting any easier.

"All the people who were at the funeral home, all the people who have sent cards, the people that have made calls -- here and in Ohio where her mom is at -- we can't thank everybody enough for their support and their continued support. We need it. Keep praying for us -- we need it," she said.

Nichols father also took the time to thank Chase Weber -- the man Nichols was dating when she died. He says, Weber is now a part of their family, and they thank him for making the last few weeks of her life a little brighter.
