Gosh....Where to begin. My mom told me you worshiped me when I was a small child. She told me to took me everywhere with you. We were 14 years apart. You were married when I was 7. I never really had a big brother. But you blessed me with a son and 2 lovely daughters. Thru the years I am now a great, great Aunt for a fourth time. You worked VERY hard. You produced excellence with your pipe fitting skills. Few people could work with you because of your high expectations. You sent many a journeyman with their tail between their legs. lol. That work ethic came from your parents. Our relationship was rocky at times. But we knew in our hearts we loved each other endlessly. The Bears and Packers game just will not be the same anymore..I love you Nick. I never stopped.Rest in heavenly peace BIG Brother:~)

To the family of my cousin Nick, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Nick was such a fun spirited sweetheart. He is now with his parents (Uncle Nick & Aunt Dee) and his beloved Kim. Peace Nick. Heaven just got a little sweeter

To the family of Nick,
I'm so very sorry and asking God to hold each of you close. Nick and I had many educational years together through Zion and Concordia Lutheran High schools. I thought the world of him as many of us did.
