Nick, I don't know what to say. I texted you on Christmas and New Year's and got no response. I tried to call you because we always stayed in contact around holidays and such. I googled your name for some reason and your obituary came up I am in shock. You were my best friend and I will miss you more than you know. We talked in July for awhile and it seems like yesterday. I will miss you and keep or memories in my heart my best friend, my homie.. Love you always, Cindy

Nick, I will always love you, you saved my life a couple of times and loved me for me. I will always cherish what we had. I found out what happened and I broke down, just can't believe I have to deal with the massive loss of losing you and not being able to call or text you or meet up with you whenever we can. This is one of the hardest losses I have ever had to deal with but I know you're in a better place and no longer suffering. I love you always. Your favorite witch.
