"Nicki and Matt had a wonderful life together in California. She was definitely a fighter and everyone who knew her loved her."

As news of Nicki's passing emerged, Eric Kripke—the creator of Supernatural—mourned her death on Twitter. "Gutted to hear the great #NickiAycox, our first #MegMasters, passed away. Too young," he wrote on Nov. 20. "She was a delight & delivered lines like honey & venom.
