Our Family has been knowing Nick since he was in 2nd grade at Magnolia Trace with my son Trent. Trent and Nick were great friends in and out of school. My husband coached them in baseball. They lost touch after going to different schools, but I will never forget the day Trent came home and told me that Nick was going to Lakeshore. He was so excited and they became great friends again like they never lost touch. We will miss seeing Nick stroll in and out our home with all the other boys. My love and condolences go out to the entire family. May you all live in the peace of a wonderful reunion some day.

The first time I met Nick was when he was in my first grade class at Magnolia Trace. We were very close in elementary school, and I wish we could’ve stayed close throughout high school. His ability to light up a room will be shared from above, and his smile and kind heart will never be forgotten. We love you, Nick. Thank you for being a hero.
