I miss you Nick. It's hard to believe that the last time I got to spend time with you was 3 Aprils ago. Our birthday month. You turned 21 that year. And you will forever be 21. And it's wierd because now I'm the one turning 21. I've caught up to you. And I realized that from this month on I will surpass you in age. That's wierd for me. You will always be my older cousin. I will always be looking up to you. No matter how much older than you I get, I'm still going to see you that way. I remeber you being 11 and I being 8. And you declaring that you were going to sell all your pokemon cards because you said pokemon wasn't cool anymore. And that was that. My older cousin who knew everything said pokemon wasn't cool anymore so I stopped thinking it was cool. And I hate that youre not here to set that standard of cool for me anymore Happy Birthday Nick. Love, Your little Cousin<3

Even as a small child you always loved EVERY Holiday. Thanksgiving was always so special to our family. You were the first grandchild and everyone always fussed over you. We all loved you and spoiled you to know end, especially nanna, who I know is by your side now. She LOVED you so very much and I know she is taking such good care of you. Happy Thanksgiving my angel boy. Mommy misses you so very much that its so hard to breath sometimes. I LOVE YOU!
Lights of Hope Day
October 1, 2014
Yesterday was the "Lights of Hope" Day! We lit a red candle for current people facing addiction, we lit a white candle for addicts in recovery, and a black/silver/dark candle for those who passed away from this horrible epidemic. So many of our family and friends showed tremendous support in lighting these candles and especially lighting the dark candle in your memory Nick....you are missed each and every single day by those who LOVE you!!! Most of us have all learned so much from your passing, even though there are still those who still need guidance, we still pray you can help guide them now. My only wish Nick, is that many people we know learned something from your passing, give back to those in need, and treat people with Love and Kindness....I know its not possible for all, but even just a handful is a blessing...YOU will have died for something, to teach others about how precious life is. To teach others about love and bonds....you have become a great spirit and guide now, please help guide those in need especially the afflicted with addiction.
