Dear deana,
I am sorry for your loss. We are here if you need us. Anytime you need to talk get a hold of us. I loved hanging out with Nicholas and loved watching him.

To Nick's family, we are deeply sadden by Nick's loss.  Nick had been one of my students and had worked with both our son and one of our daughters.  He was fun in class and I loved his smile - that is one of the things I will miss the most.  I don't really know anything I could say that would do justice; if I could (any of us) ease your pain, I (we) would.  I hope just by knowing so many people around your family are there to support you will give you some comfort. With deepest sympathy, The Wilhours

Gay and John Wilhour and family Jan 25 2016 12:00 AM

Brianne, Penny, Linda, and All of Nic's much loved family, I am so sorry for your loss.  Nic was a wonderful young man and will be remembered in that way.  He always had a smile for everyone and it seemed especially me.  May you be given much love and strength in this time of sorrow.  Most sympathetically, Sally Schaefer
