Denise, I worked with Nick in the 70’s at Bristol Labs. I truly enjoyed his friendship and the time we spent working together. His laughter and encouragement was great to be around. He was a special guy. I moved to Delaware in 1978 to another pharma but always remember my early days with Nick in Quality Assurance. My found thoughts to you and your family.

So sorry for your loss, a loss we all feel. We had so many fun times together. Hopefully, as you reminisce, those fond memories will bring you comfort.
May he Rest In Peace and may his memory be eternal.
