I just found out about Nick's passing. I went to high school with him and though I didn't know him well, I know he was highly thought of by his classmates. God bless.

There are no words to express how much I feel for all that you have gone through in the past two weeks. The loss of your mother and then Nick has just been earth shattering to all of us. I hope it helps you to know that all who knew them are hurting with you and are here for you in any way that you need us. Your family is in my prayers and I hope you will call if there is anything I can do for you. God bless you all.
