  • Stan and Jen, you have my deepest condolences. Their are no words at a time like this. I have a son, I feel your grief. May God strengthen you and keep you. I got to know Nick in little league, I don’t remember many but I remember Nick. He always acted like he wasn’t paying attention, but he really was. Those were good years, fun years. I wish you peace and happiness in God.

  • Stanley and Jen,

  • Very sorry for the loss of Nick. I did not get to know him well but from what I do know he had a kind soul and was a sweet guy. May he find peace and happiness in his new adventure. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  • I’m so very sorry for your loss. I did not get the chance to know nick closely. But the several times I have met and talked with him will forever remain. He was very smart and I loved the few conversations we had shared.

  • Stan and Jen, sending you my deepest sympathies and prayers for the strength to make it the days ahead.

  • Jen, Sending you my prayers and deepest sympathies. Having lost my oldest son at age 25, I know there’s no greater pain. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  • I can’t say I ever knew Nick very well, but I remember him from soccer games and practices in Elementary School. He usually went out of his way to make it fun for me since I wasn’t particularly good at it. His family would invite me to his house after soccer practices in Elementary School. They would walk with me to the Pit Stop at the corner of West Main and Short Street in Lexington to get ice cream. He was nice to me, and I still remember him even after all these years apart. I wish I had known him better, but I owe him and his family thanks for being a part of my life.

  • Stan and Jen
    We are so very sad to learn of Nick’s passing. He was a good friend to my boys and a blast to have around our Hanley road home. His smile and personality made the day brighter.
