This is for your mommy, Nikolas, to give her the strength she needs, the strength we all need. "The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." We must remember that every day. We all miss you so very much. We love you, always and forever.

I would give my life to have you back, said his mom. I know you would, said her son. I cry each night for you, said his mom. I catch all your years, said her son. I pray for the day I can see you again, said his mom. Close your eyes and you can see me, said her son....You are the first person who loved me and the first person I loved. You were always there when I need you, always there when I needed a hug. I am here when you need me mom, in your heart and soul. I did not take your heart with me, instead I left mine for you to hold. One day I will take your hand and lead you to paradise, but until then my beautiful mother when you want to see you only need to close your eyes.....Mother and Son!

I miss you every second of every day Nikolas.

Happy 16th Birthday to my awesome baby! I miss you so very much. Everyone released your balloons and cake today, lol, I know you caught them. Love you to the moon, stars and back times infinity squared!
December 28, 2013
Happy 16th Birthday, Nikolas! Would you believe 31 balloons and chocolate cake too! Bella released your balloons and we watched until they were out of sight! Did you see them? What a fine young man you are. You know you mean the world to us. We love you and miss you each and every day. So proud to be your Mema and Papa!
December 28, 2013
Happy Birthday Little Man. Papa and I love you and miss you dearly.

Our second Christmas without you.We are a little better this year but we will never be the same again. Every day we are trying to cope, keeping busy, but losing you is always right there, from the moment we open our eyes, til the moment we close them again. There have been changes this year, but somehow, everything remains the same. Death ends a life, not a relationship. No one truly dies, unless they are forgotten. We will remember you forever! Our love, our life, our grandson, Nikolas.
Love you and miss you,
Mema and Papa

Nik, Merry Christmas our angle. Your papa and I thought of you today, but that is nothing new . We thought of you yesterday and will tomorrow, too. We think of you in silence and make no outward show. For what it meant to lose you, only those who love you do it everyday. It's the heartache of losing you that will never ever go away. We miss and love you Nik!!!
Love Papa and Sharon
PS. Papa bought you a Dodge Charger car to go with your car collection, and your toy room is looking pretty awesom.
November 28, 2013
Today, our second Thanksgiving without you! So very hard, but we were all together, as we were last year. We find our strength being with those we love, but still so very hard without you! You are so loved and missed every minute, every hour of every day. Until we are together again- Forever, Mema and Papa
November 21, 2013
Has it been a year already? No, it was just yesterday! We saw Fr. Carney this morning and he asked that question. A year already, or 100 years, its all the same. Seems like yesterday! Some people think we should be over losing you, but how do you get over losing your only child or your first grandchild? YOU DON'T! It lives with you every day from the minute you awake til the minute you fall asleep. Always center most in your mind. We see your face, we see your eyes and, if we are lucky, we feel your touch. Always there, forever more, for this has now become our life. Everything you said and did becomes so important. We don't ever want to forget! But, we know you are happy and we know you are waiting for us, to make our family complete again, one by one we will come and we can hardly wait!
Until we meet again, know how much we love you and miss you! Forever in our hearts, Nikolas.

JENNIFER'S LOVE FOR NIKOLAS

I want you to always know there are no words to express how much you mean to me and the love I have for you. A son like you was the answer to my prayers. The day you were born, I knew you were meant for me and I was meant for you. God sent me a blessing and it was you. I thank him every day for our short 15 years even though it was unfair you had to leave. I am so grateful and proud of you and the man you were becoming. It's because of you my life has meaning and purpose. Being your mom is and always will be my greatest accomplishment. Always remember how much I love you, for a son like you there could be no other. You and I will be forever. Whether we are together or apart, don't ever forget, you own my heart.
October 22, 2013
Last year at Bella's 2nd birthday was the last time most of us saw you. This year at Bella's birthday our hearts ached for you. Bella talked to you all morning, she was so excited about her treasure box cake that Papa Colorado made her. I know you were there, I know you wouldn't had missed it. I also know how much you liked the Goonies ;0). We miss you so much. It gets worse every day. I am wondering if it will ever hurt less. I pray Bella always sees you, Monkey.
October 21, 2013
Saturday was Bella's 3rd birthday. One year ago on her 2nd birthday was the last time we saw you before the accident. The most tragic day of our lives. I remember you and Divine watching the football game on t.v., and then you coming outside to help with the pinata. How you loved her! If only we had known how precious those memories would become. She was talking to you before her party this year, showing you her treasure chest cake!! She loves you and misses you so much.
We think of you every minute of every day. We miss you too. Our love for you will never diminish. We miss you more every day. Until the day we meet again,
We love you,
Mema and Papa

Nikolas,
It's been 11 very long painful months without you. Even though I know you are always with me, it is still very difficult. Now that I know all the things that can go wrong and how unfair life can be, my life has become less about living and more about waiting, waiting to be with you again. There are three things I hold on to: faith, hope and love. Most importantly is my everlasting love for you. I love you and miss you to the moon, stars, and back times infinity squared!

Soon,
Mommy
September 21, 2013
The pain gets worse by the day baby; it's been 10 unbearable months. Everyday I ask why this happened; I will never understand. "I will like you forever, I will love you always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be!" I am sending you all my love and tons of hugs. Soon,
Mommy
September 21, 2013
Grief is an external thing like a shadow that you can't escape. You have to live with it. It does not grow any smaller, you just need to accept that it is there. We grieve for you every day Nikky.
We love you and miss more as time passes. Until we are together again, you will always be our baby.
Mema and Papa
September 15, 2013

August 21, 2013
There are people who light up the world and you were truly one of them. We will heal eventually but we will never be the same!
We miss you more with each passing day, and our love for you is eternal.

July 22, 2013
I miss you every day. First summer not hanging out with you. It's been tough. We should be excited about sophomore year. Still haven't erased any of the emails we sent from school. I will keep them forever.
July 21, 2013
December 28, 1997, the happiest day of our lives. We cried so many tears of joy! You were our 1st grandchild. We were so happy! We loved you so much!
November 21, 2012, we cried again but tears of sorrow. We are so sad! We are truly so overcome by our grief! So unreal!
We love you and miss you so much!
Forever,

Where are you this moment?
Only in my dreams.
You're missing, but you're always
a heartbeat from me.
I'm lost now without you,
I don't know where you are.
I keep watching, I keep hoping,
but time keeps us apart

Is there a way I can find you,
is there a sign I should know,
is there a road I could follow
to bring you back home?

Winter lies before me,
now you're so far away.
In the darkness of my dreaming,
the light of you will stay.

If I could be close beside you,
If I could be where you are,
If I could reach out and touch you
and bring you back home.
Is there a way I can find you,
Is there a sign I should know,
Is there a road I could follow,
to bring you back home to me?

Its been 5 long months without you Nikolas. I miss you so much I can bearly breath. I love you to the moon, stars, and back times infinity. "They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it.

You are always on my mind. I talked to Oona today. She said that Jacquain talks about you all the time. Thank you for leaving an everlasting impression on his heart. You are his " fwend." I know you are doing God's work now and many children consider you their friend/ brother in Heaven. Bella misses you so much. I love you Monk. I pray you are fishing and joking around with grandpa.

Nikolas brought so much love and joy to our family, Divine was always happy when he was around. Nik is such a special young man and his love will forever be with us. I am heart broken that we all can't see his bright smile every day, but I know his awesome spirit and love will not leave us. He will continue to influence Divine and all of us with his positive energy throughout our lives. I would like to thank Nik's MOM, DAD and Grandparents for giving the gift of Nikolas to our world. May we all live as excellent a life as Nikolas !!! WE LOVE NIK FOREVER

I will forever remember Nik at the 6th grade camp out for Pinon School. Nik was my "buddy" and we spent an entire day exploring and having fun. He was a joy and made me laugh. Lauren thought of Nik as her forever most special friend, through thick and thin. He will be remembered forever and missed dearly. We wish the family much peace and love in the months to come.
November 27, 2012

My sweet nephew nikolas, you were such a beautiful young man with a heart of gold. You truly are loved and always will be loved. I will never forget all of our slumber parties, holding you when you were a baby while singing you to sleep, and riding the 4-wheelers up at papas land (along with numerous other memories). Not many people know what it's like to lay down their life for someone they love. You do and I am so honored to say that you are my nephew! I love you so much and will continue to love you more and more with each passing day until we meet again. Please my sweets watch over all of us, especially your mom. We love you baby boy!

We did not know Nikolas personally but the loss of a young life is always deeply felt with extreme sadness and disconcert. We wish that the balsam of peace would eventually arrive to your lives to help you tolerate the biggest pain that no parent should ever have to endure.
Our blessings and sincere condolences for your tragic loss,
