A WOMAN who died in a crash involving a lorry and a cyclist has been described by her family as their “absolute world and rock” who was “always smiling”.

Emergency services were called to reports of a crash on the A476 between Temple Bar and Ffairfach at around 5.10pm on Monday, October 9.

The crash involved an articulated lorry and a cyclist.

It was confirmed that the cyclist, who has now been named as 52-year-old Nicolette Lewis, died at the scene.

Mrs Lewis’ family are now being supported by specialist officers from Dyfed-Powys Police.

“We just want to thank everyone for the support and kind-hearted messages,” they said, via a statement released by the police.

“No words can be said during this very difficult and devastating time.

“All we ask is for everyone to respect our space to grieve and come to terms with this tragic loss of our beautiful mother and wife.

“She was our absolute world and rock, a wonderful soul who did not deserve to leave this life so early.

“We know that all she wants for us is to come together and make the most of our lives with a smile as she was always smiling, with a large glass of wine in one hand.

“We shall all raise a glass of wine to Nicolette very soon. Sleep tight you beautiful soul.”
