May Nick rest in eternal peace knowing that he has left a fine legacy on earth. The greatest of that legacy is his wonderful children. They are all so accomplished, talented, and kind, and speak to the kind of home and parent he provided. The children also showed that legacy in how they have cared and attended to their parents the last couple years .
Nick will be hard or them to lose but a good memory in their lives and loving hearts forever! He has, indeed, left this world a better place for having been here. MMSpear
