Dear Nico , i know you and i did not have too much communication because i only met you through Veronica. Her and I were great friends in middle school and i remember all the times i ever saw you in the halls or just out around marion oaks i's say hi to you and ask you how you and your family were doing because i considered you family as i did Veronica of course.
I'm sorry i was not a bigger part of your life nor there for you more and i can't help but cry at the fact that someone i basically shared the younger portion of my life with is no longer with us...
Till we meet again brotha , Rest Easy and watch over us all ♥️. God Bless.

I will never forget my best friend. Nick and I used to love to ride our bikes around Marion Oaks and exploring all of what nature had to offer. He was one of the most interesting people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. I remember we spent two weeks straight after school one time just building a fort in the woods beside our houses. We would love to go to it just to escape and talk about video games and what we wanted to do with our lives. Looking back on it I find it kind of humorous that we would enjoy spending the night at each others houses even though we were one house apart. And of course we were always susceptible to getting into trouble. Playing pranks on each other and even some of our other friends. And I also remember a time that we planned to start our own “babysitting service” after taking care of some kids down the block. I truly wish that life didn’t drift us apart a couple of years ago. I always meant to get back in touch with you just I never got the chance. I always figured you would be there and that when I got done with school there would be plenty of time. I will always cherish our friendship, you were the first best friend I’ve ever had. May you now Rest In Peace. I will continually pray for your amazing family, who was always so kind to me over the years and of whom you always looked up to.

I will never forget all those times I walked into Sra. Torres classroom looking for you so we could have lunch together. I remember thinking whenever you weren’t there “how lonely that power-hour was going to be” we used to laugh and talk about the silliest things. You even helped me with my homework at times. I’m sorry I wasn’t there for you during this hard times. Only to think I saw you a few weeks back and exchanged numbers you were so happy that we got back in touch. I give my condolences to your family and to you my brother and friend, you will always live in my heart Rest In Peace my friend. I love you.
