I will always remember Nick as a very quiet man. At parties and such, he would just sit and listen to all the rest of us being loud, often talking quietly with my Dad. He was always in a good mood, and never complained that I heard.
It is hard to see a loved one get older and more fragile. But knowing that he is with the Lord and is no longer in pain is in itself very reassuring to us who will miss him.
God Bless You All…
