My name is Louise D'Alessio Hof. I am Nick's first cousin. We used to see each other when my dad, Anthony, visited his brother. My brother, Philip and wife, Angie, used to get together with Nick and his wife. Phil passed in '04. I live in Silver Spring, Md. So very sorry for your loss.

Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one's gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart, far as long as there is memory, they'll live on in the heart.

One of my favorite memories of Uncle Nick is when Uncle Phil played the piano and Nick played the saxophone. Phil, Nick and Ernie challenged each other with "name that tune." Nick got every one right. They had such a comical routine when they were together. The camaraderie, laughter and genuine brotherly love was a joy to watch. I love you Uncle Nicky.
