For over 45 years Nick has been our brother-in- love. One of my favorite memories of our time together was when we were headed out of the country, we stopped in Atlanta. Nick showed us “his” Atlanta and took us to two of his special places. One, was the very first Chik-fil-A and the other, a famous restaurant whose name escapes me now. We so enjoyed that special time together. He will be missed not only by his immediate family but his extended family. Rest in the loving arms of our Lord and Saviour Nick.
With love,

The Skip Rudolph family❤️
