  12. My condolences for your loss of this sweet man. Nicki and I were in school together at Randolph, David Millard and Lee Edwards. I remember his sense of humor and fun. Nicky was one of the lights of this world.

    “Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you.”

  14. Peggy and Patrick, Chuck and I were so sorry to hear of Nick’s passing. He was a good man and a great friend to Chuck. I always knew when it was Nick on the phone – how 2 men could spend a half an hour or more and talk of nothing but ‘Andy and Barney’, and laughter coming from both ends of the phone! And it didn’t matter that they had seen that episode 6 times before! You both will be in our thoughts and prayers! God Bless you, Comfort you, and be with you both, – always!
