    I am so sorry for the loss of Nick. He and Nate were to of my favorite people growing up with. I enjoyed my time with Nick when we were able to reconnect in college and had classes together. It was like our friendship didn’t drop a beat from the time we last saw each other. He is missed. RIP my friend.

    Nate, Barb, and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many great memories growing up with Nick. I’ve smiled a lot over the last couple days reminiscing of those times. The service and your speeches were beautiful tributes. I look forward to the celebration of life. Take care. God bless.

    Thank you for sharing this online. Nick and Nate were always such fun and funny kids in high school! Although my memory isn’t as good as it used to be, I only have fond memories of phone calls, and hanging out. Nate – I am praying for strength during this difficult time – no words seem adequate, and can see you are surrounded by so much love to help you, as well. Nick was loved by many – and I hope he did realize that. Out of touch, does not mean out of mind / thoughts… Take care Nate, and Nick – we will see you again in Heaven!
