We are deeply saddened by the sudden and shocking passing of Nick. Our family held Nick in such high regard and he will be sorely missed. My father Dan and Nick were so close and bonded in their strong, unwavering faith. May God bless the Rossi family and ease their sadness through this extremely painful time.

To all of the Rossi's,
I am so shocked and deeply saddened to hear of Nicky's sudden passing. My absolute warmest memories are growing up and spending time at the Rossi house on Broadview with the entire family. I miss those times. Nicky was always so nice to me. I remember him being kind, soft spoken, and genuine. I know that your wonderful parents were waiting for him with open arms when he passed over to his next life.
Please, know that all of my thoughts, prayers, and love are with Nicky and with all of you at this difficult time.
With deepest sympathy,
Tomianne Matturro-Maggio (and family)

Nicky was the sweetest soul with the kindest heart. I will always remember his keen sense of humor and strong faith. We have been friends for almost 40 years and in that time he embraced my entire family as his own. Truly one of a kind. We will miss him terribly, but we know he is in the arms of God.
All our love,
Anna, Byron, Luke and Lloyd Mohney

Paraphrasing something Fr. DePauw used to say every Mother's Day; if Nick ain't in Heaven, then there ain't no such place. Nick was a real good buddy; he would often join me and my girlfriend for breakfast after Sunday Mass, and we would have a very pleasant time. My late mother, a good Catholic Italian Lady, always had a real soft spot for Nick...he will be sorely missed. Earl Baim
