Luisa, and the entire Nofi Family,
Where can I begin to try and tell you how I feel about our loss? We all knew how lustfully he cared for life and for those around him. When Nick called you his friend, you felt special, for a wonderful man brought you into his heart. The moments we shared together, whether on the golf course, at Golfer's Warehouse, or just sharing a laughable time over coffee at Brewed Awakenings were special. I will especially miss those times shared with our friends.
Our journey's back to Rhode Island will feel empty now that Nick will no longer be there to greet Marie and I, and show us what we I left behind when we moved to Florida. He always made our return heavenly. Now in Heaven is where we must meet to rekindle our love.
Luisa, I am truly sorry that , due to the distance that separates us, I cannot be there with you during these solemn times. Know that Nick will always be in my heart, my thoughts, and my prayers.
