Marc, Carolyn, Zack and Kevin,
We're so sorry for the loss of your Nick. Distance has kept me from knowing your children well, but I have heard how wonderful Nick was. As a mother my heart aches for you. Please know I've been thinking of you and praying everyday that God brings your family comfort at this sorrowful time. Although I couldn't be at Nick's service, I prayed the rosary for you all during the funeral. May God bless you and grant you all the graces needed to make it through this difficult time.
All our Love,
Chrissy, Jeremy, Evan, Peyton, Lexi and Baby Ava Nalley

Marc & Carolyn: We were so sorry to hear of Nicholas's death. I am sorry we couldn't attend his funeral but know you were in our prayers and will be for your sadness. I'm sure Linda would have been devastated over his passing.
Love and prayers.

To The Family of Nick Collins, please except my deepest sympathy, death is a sting that is so hard to find comfort from but please know that Our Creator intends to bring the pain of death to an end. Please find comfort in His promise Isiah 25:8" he will swallow up death forever.The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces;
he will remove his people's disgrace from all the earth.The Lord has spoken

Marc, Carolyn, Zack and Kevin:
There are no words to take away your agony, and we too are in pain, but please know that you are amazing parents and you raised the most incredible son! He knew he was loved and that is such a blessing. Every time we were around Nick he brought a big smile to our face. He had the most sincere, compassionate, incredible heart!
When we grieve it is for ourselves for Nick is in paradise where there is no pain or sorrow. We pray that you can reflect on this and that it can bring you some comfort. May the Lord wrap His loving arms around you and ease your pain and suffering! Nick wil be missed but NEVER forgotten. May God grant him everlasting life.
Please know that we are here for you always.
The Aneed family
