If not for you, my partner through paramedic school… I don’t know if I would have made it. You were always called my work husband (with Stephanie’s approval of course) and I can’t imagine a world where I didn’t know you for the past 9 years. I know you probably got annoyed with all the memes, dumb texts I sent you regularly and at me screaming “I love you” across the ER especially the last few weeks of your time here with us, but at least I got you to say it back with a smile. You will never be forgotten. Rest easy and please watch over all of us. Until we see each other again, I will miss you. Love you NJG

You were a strength to with your knowledge of nursing and I admired that from the beginning and you kept us, the professors on our toes with your humble subtle hints during lab time. I really appreciated that! I guess you had done what was needed and heaven needed you more....RIP no more sorrow or pain. Jesus will take care now.

I love you so much Nick (even though you always took the flan out of the oven way too early and took advantage of my gullible nature). I’ll miss your pranks, jokes, smiling face, and gentleness more than anything. Rest In Peace brother. ♡
