Nick, was a father to me during the years that I needed one the most. I still remember the salads he would prepare along with a piece of toast. Oh and he always had an abundance of budding meat packets. As we get older we realize it's the little things in life that mean the most. Peace to you and your family.

So here we are! I'm very happy to have met such a funny and sarcastic man such as yourself. Memories won't be forgotten. You've had your struggles and went through them almost without detection. I wish you a better afterlife. Gonna miss you silly!
