I have never in my 18 years of life been aware of this officer nicki, his death, or grave. However tonight July 22 2013 on a full moon my husband, a friend, and myself ended up in the cemetery where Nicki rests. While we were near his grave and memorial bench I told my husband and friend, "I'm drawn to this grave stone!" Pointed then walked straight to his grave... when I read the stone I was frozen and began to cry. Today would have been his 39th birthday. I immediately told my husband and friends something bad happened to him he was a young police officer, someone killed him. And that's when I looked up his story, and this is the only place I found to share my story. I had to let someone who might have known him know about my experience. I sat on nicks bench talking to him and we all wished him a happy birthday. I hope you are at peace nick, and I hope you're loved ones will find peace as well.
