    Hope you can remember the good times with Nick,

    I guess things happen for a reason, I am not religious but maybe a higher power had that reason..

    Take care of yourself Linda.

    Dear Linda,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure Nick will always be with you – the love of his life.
    Keep those great memories close. We all have memories of Nick – quite the character always.
    Wish I could be at his memorial but due to Covid and restrictions, not able to be there. I will be there in spirit and will pray for Nick.
