Nicholas, we know you and your papaw were very special to each other and his love and support for you is a big part of the compassionate and accomplished man you became. Vicki, Mark and I both know how hard is is to lose a father. Juanita, 68 years is an amazing marriage! Wish we could be there for the service, but know that you are all in our hearts.
