Abby, my heart is heavy as I think about the loss you and your family are experiencing. I am so very sorry. Sending much love, care and support to you. I thank Nick for being a supporter of St. Jude and I will most certainly make a donation honoring him. He was so fortunate to have such a loving and devoted family to reciprocate the love he gave.

Darryl, Valerie, & Abby, Thoughts and prayers being lifted up for all of you during this very difficult time. I remember meeting Nick when you guys brought him up to the StateLine Drive-In for a movie when I was still working for Budd/Bosch. Would love to come and see you all, but have an obligation at my church on Wednesday evening. Again, love, thoughts and prayers being lifted up for all.---Gene "Teacher" Estep
