Nick.. you will always be the best brother a little sister could ever have. Life will never be the same from this point on. I've been speechless on many accounts. & at a certain point I myself couldn't understand why God needed you more than us. But as I have said before, it is never our place to judge God's decisions. I just wish you could send us a message of how great Heaven is. I know you already know this, but I will take great care of Kaiden and Cruz. Those two boys are my world, and every time i look at them they remind me so much of you. You were a great father, son, brother, and friend. Help us get through this tragic time. i love you, and may you rest in peace until we meet again some day. My Guardian Angel forever! :)

I still keep in touch with Tina McDonald Broussard, and she emailed me yesterday. I send my warmest and deepest thoughts and sorrow during this time of your loss of Nicholas. And for his family, a tragic loss for his children. Take great care, Leslie Lopez (Houston, TX)

Our deepest sympathy is extended to Nick's family. Nick came to our home (in New Iberia) may times during his teenage years. His smile was always the first thing that appeared. May God guide you all through this trying time.
