Nick had the best smile and laugh. Whenever I worked with him, he was always eager to help and share. I remember at L's birthday party Nick was so happy and clapping for her. He had such a generous heart.

Having known Nick from when he was little bitty, I am simply heartbroken that he is no longer with us. Nick was uniquely wonderful--amazingly accomplished and deeply loved. I am honored to have had him and his family in my life. Nick, I love you and miss you dearly.
