    Nick’s passing is a great loss to those who knew him. He was a dedicated son, brother, partner and friend. I will remember him for his kindness, sensitivity, humor and wit. Nick’s humor was clever and effortless, and he appeared to deeply enjoy entertaining people, especially his sister, Natasha.
    Please accept my deepest sympathies and know you are in my thoughts today and the days ahead.

    The beauty of stars and constellations will be admired all the more now that your dearest brother, son, friend, and fiance to Lauren is up there shining like a bright star.

    Nick will be missed, but never forgotten. His humor and wit was one of a kind. I am so blessed to have met him. He was such a kind hearted soul.

    Cherish the memories you have as they will help get you through this tough time.

    He may be gone, but just know you will see him again and he is in the arms of the Lord in peace and without pain. He was so strong and brave through his fight with cancer.
