Hi Jeannie. I am very sorry for your loss of your best friend and love of your life . I am sorry I could not attend the funeral but you were in my thoughts and prayers . I am also sorry that I did not come and visit Nicky prior to his passing. Although we were not close in later life he was a great guy, teammate and good friend at East. May he rest in peace.
