The landscape around here will never look the same without you, Nick. Since the day I first moved from the "patch" in 1978 and became your neighbor, it was always reassuring to see you hard at work in the field. You will be missed.

You will be missed by so many who loved you. You were such a kind-hearted person. And you grew the best potatoes! God blessed you with the ability to plant and grow here on earth. You did that with food, but also with love.

Rest in Peace Nick, I will miss our chats when we ran into each other at the store. The stories you would tell me about my Mom and about Crucible and Rices Landing. May the garden you plant in heaven produce as much happiness as it did here on earth. God Bless.
