Nick's parents: I met your dear son just last Sat at the Legion. He looked about my son's age, who went to RL, so I asked if he knew him. He did. We exchanged a few words. He was so sweet and mannerly to take those few minutes with me. When my son shared this news I was shocked and so very saddened. I'm glad I got to meet him. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Thoughts and prayers are with you all. He was a wonderful kid and will be missed by many.
