Hey Janquittos. Saw Nicks obit on the Hopping web site. So sorry to hear of his passing. We have many shared memories. We remember the castles Nick created for the outside of the house, all the times we spent together at wrestling and family gatherings. Thinking of all of you.

To Nancy & family,

Our oldest and sweetest memories of Nick, as we first moved to Livingston as new parents, was his ready smile and wave as he greeted us, and admiring his garden and home, and his artistic flair!
Strong of character and a big heart..... you will always be remembered with love and kindness. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Nancy, and your family.

With love & prayers,
Barbara, Joe, Joey & Lauren
