Hard time of year Nick! Thankful for all I have and missing all we have lost! Not a day goes by that you are not thought of! Love and miss you so much!

Just sitting here thinking of you and missing you.
April 01, 2014
Hey Nick, I miss you so much. Been a rough year without you. I'm older than you were when you passed and it's hard to deal with those feelings. I wish you were here with us. Every day we talk about you and reminisce. Love your little sister forever.
December 29, 2013
God bless you Marine!

December 30, 2012
As time passes the pain grows no matter what other people say you need to get over it, You never get over a loss like this thanks Nicholas for your service and the price you pain so we can have FREEDOM that most American just dont understand your families loss is American loss

Nick, yesterday was a hard one. Its so hard to believe that 5 years have gone by already. The pain isn't the "intense not able to breathe" pain as it was at first, but more like a deep sadness knowing you will never come home to us. You will never marry and have kids, never know all the young cousins that were to young or not even born yet. You will never know how proud we are for the ultimate sacrifice you made to keep us safe at home and for that I am eternally grateful. We all miss you more than you will ever know. And we also thank each and everyone of you who continue to send prayers and notes of condolence.
It means a lot to Nicks family to know that he hasn't been forgotten. RIP Nick, till we meet again.

Hey Nick, been awhile...your little sister is all grown up now. Almost 18, it doesnt seem like its been this long. being I was 13 when you died. I miss you a lot. Not a day goes by when I dont think about you, and ask myself if you would be proud of Derek and I, and our choices that we made.

Love you

Your death was not in vain. The head of the snake has been cut off. I do not condone a life for a life, but it is nice to know the Al Quida is down one master mind. I love you and miss you.

I've read today that Osama Bin Laden has been killed. Justice has been served & I just wish you were able to be here to see it.

I love and miss you. Think about you every day.

Nick, you are missed terribly by all your family and friends! We all thank you for your brave service to this country! Love you!
March 19, 2011
You are missed dearly.
March 18, 2011

I will never forget the times watching you play with the kids. The way you looked out for everyone and made sure they played fair. I remember the many occasions when you "bummed a meal," as you called it. Your rough housing in the yard and the visit to me before you flew out. I know I was not a huge part of your life, but enjoyed every minute we had. I wish I could have given you proper tribute at the time, but you will always live on in my heart. I am glad you enjoyed my cooking and visiting with your cousins. I know you are standing tall and I am proud of the man you became. You are forever in my heart and not a day goes by that I do not miss you. Your passing has created incredible changes in many. I want you to know that you mattered and your sacrifice was the ultimate show of courage and love of your country. We appreciate that sacrifice and that of your fellow USMC brothers. Thank you Nick.

With All My Love,
Aunt Karen

You're still here in my heart and mind,
still making me laugh cause your stories live on.
I hold you in a thought and I can feel you.
I feel you and this gives me strength and courage.
The tears I have cried for you could flood the earth
and I know you have wiped each one away.
For you Brother, I promise you this,
I will go on with my life and make you proud. I will always hold you in my heart.
I promise you I will be missing you everyday till the end of time,
but this is not my end and I can't hold my head underwater....I need to breathe.
I need to love and miss you, but I also need to live because through me you will live,
you will still laugh and love,
you will still sing and dance,
you will still hug and kiss.
You will forever be in our lives,
you will forever be a brother,
a son,
a cousin
and friend.
I am going to miss your shining face
I think of you and wonder why?
I might cry or smile,
but at the end of the day I am one day closer to you....
January 25, 2010

I will always miss you, everyday seems like were missing something. Almost 4 years now and still nothing is the same. I love you and someday we will be together as brother and sister again.

Love you

Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.

The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”

I did not know Nicholas, but I am remembering
his service and sacrifice. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

We will also be displaying his picture on our Memorial Wall along with the pictures of more than 4700 of his fallen comrades. We do not want the families of these men and women to think that we have forgotten them. Nicholas has made the ultimate sacrifice for others. God bless.

Our hearts ache still. We will not forget all that you brought to our family. One year later, you are not from our minds. If only you were here...

December 28, 2007
It's always hard to speak when it's to a great young man who should have grown old. It's hard because you get caught up in what you think they'd be doing today, what they'd be doing years from now. It gets so hard that you don't want to say anything, because it seems like any words of kindness are falling on the wrong ears and not upon the ones you want. I will remember you as the Marine who died on a bad day while doing his job. You did the common when the uncommon was being waged and for that, I wish I could have shaken your hand. You take care of yourself up there and we'll be seeing you around, even if it takes us a while.
December 20, 2007
I could never have asked for a better brother than Nick. R.I.P.
Until we meet again.

There is nothing that I can say or do to take away the pain or bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer you and your family my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON, a dear family friend who joined the Army with three other friends, one of whom is my son (Le Ron was killed in action on 07/06/07 at the age of 18) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.

It will be Easter in 2 days. I feel compelled to post some words of gratitude, but struggle for the correct words that would express my appreciation adequately, but know that my son serves in the Corps with the 1/5 Unit at Camp Pendleton. May love and pleasant memories of you surround your family and friends this Easter.

Be Still

Be still like the grass on a melancholy summer day
Be still like desert shrub.

Be calm and you will hear your loved one speak, in the stillness, in the calm, their love resounds.

If you are still this promise I make, you will hear the voice of your loved one helping you along your way.

March 13, 2007
God be with your family. Your son is shining in Heaven. My son left yesterday for Iraq from North Carolina.

No bond is as great as that between a parent and child. Our deepest condolences are with you as you grieve.
March 01, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not're coming here to me.

To Nicholas's family and friends-
My family and I are praying for you and your family during this difficult time. We send our deepest empathy as we lost our Marine on 11/30/05 in Fallujah. We are comforted to know that our Marines are serving their country with such honor and bravery. We are so proud of our Marines and all of our other service men and women for all that they have done and continue to do to keep us safe and to give us the freedom we have that so many take for granted.
They are true Heroes and need to always be remembered for their selflessness and sacrifice to better our world. We will forever be united in the loss of our heros. We are so sorry for your loss and hope our words will ease some of the pain, and maybe fill some of your emptiness.
Yesterday, Today, Forever – Semper Fi - Marines!

Our deepest sympathies to all of you. As the good Lord now holds him closer than we have ever known, may you find some comfort in the motto Nicholas lived by "Semper Fidelis". For those who are always faithfull, for those that put their trust in "him", he shall fold the arms of his love and protection around them. With Love and sorrow, John, Pat, Mike, and Melly Timmreck
January 09, 2007
There are no words of comfort that I can provide. Know in your heart that the Land of the Free is due to The Brave. Your son, brother, cousin gave the ultimate sacrifice and we are all indebted to his bravery. Although he is physically gone from your presence, he will live forever in your hearts. To Julie Pincumbe Timmerick, please feel my thoughts being sent your way. I am so very sorry for your loss of Nicholas.

Father we entrust our brother Nicholas to your mercy. You loved him greatly in this life: now that he is freed from all its cares, give him happiness and peace forever. Welcome him now into paradise where there will be no more sorrow, no more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
January 09, 2007
From a Veteran of Desert Shield and the Bosnian Mission, I want to tell you from one Missourian to the next your son will always be remembered as one of the brave men and women who stood tall for all the citizens of this Great country we call the United States of America.

To all who sign in here always remember this family and many more have given more than anyone should--their Child for our freedom. I know I stand tall and salute you for your sacrafice. I will also stand and salute the American Flag which symbolizes all Service Members who gave and serve in the United States Armed Forces.

I personally want to say that I am sorry for the loss of your brave son. Thank You for your service to the United States.

To Nick's Family and friends:
There are no words that will allow us to adequately express our sympathy at a time like this. We all know that freedom isn't free-but when your life is touched by the price how do you deal with the cost? Know that friends, family, and even strangers are holding you all up in prayer. May the Lord grant you each the comfort, peace, and strength to face the cost; and may He ease your sorrow and help you to remember the good times you shared with Nick.
God Bless, praying for you all.
January 07, 2007
Nicholas our Hero, dearly loved and cherished by our family! If I have any other prayers, it would be to bring back the rest of his regiment. The family appreciates all these kind words and prayer's, some by family, most by people we don't even know! I grieve for those before us that have lost family, and grieve for any after us, I will keep all military in my prayer's especially those in Nick's unit. God Bless the USA!

“Paid in Full”
In Honor of The War Against Terrorism’s Fallen and Injured Marines

Marines through and through, they paid the price
Six thousand miles away, we live the life
For which they paid with their blood, spirits and bodies
We will never forget what they paid in full

We hope and we pray that somehow their loved ones find comfort
In God, in the flag, in the memory of their loved ones’ bravery
They’re gone now but we see them still…proud, strong, willing
Covering each other’s backs… courageous, moving forward

What kind of love did they have for us to be willing
To give it all for the Black, White, Jew, Christian, Muslim?
We don’t comprehend but we honor you now and forever
You are Our Marines…some living…some not
Forever in our minds we will cherish your lives

Lives too short yet immortal they’ll be
Highest brotherhood of the few, the proud
They stand at attention, and we gaze with awe
Some know their names not, but our admiration for them
Flows limitless within us, between us

They sacrificed their limbs or their lives
Freedom still rings, a soft sound across the miles
It tolls slowly; all of creation takes note
Of the lives that were lost for people unknown

Out of sight but not lost; forever among us
The starched blues marching straight
Toward the place where we will meet them
Many years from now…how we loved them…
Well done beloved Brothers and Sisters…You’ve paid it in full
Always Faithful Marines, You Have Paid it in Full

I am so sorry for your loss.
You and your loved ones will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Connie and Aunt Joan

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your Marine, son and Grandson, Nicholas. Although I did not know him personally I do know that he was a Marine and therefore I feel your sorrow as I have lost Marines of my own. I can assure you that his impact on the world and our Corps has been significant and the loss is heartfelt. His loyal dedication to duty, his courage in the face of danger and devotion to our country is how our way of life and freedom are preserved. America owes him a debt of gratitude for his sacrifice.

All my love to you at this time.

Your Cousin

May God give you comfort in knowing that Lance is now with him in heaven. Lance guarded our country and died a hero in doing so. Be proud of the man he was, and remember in your hearts the moments he had with you on earth. Take a moment to reflect back on Lance as a child. For those smiles will bring you comfort and peace.

I am deeply sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you. I am currently serving in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in the USAF and I feel your pain. God Bless.
January 03, 2007
To Nick; I am proud to have known you; you will be missed. Thank you for your bravery; it will not be forgotten.

To Nicks Family; There really are no comforting words at a time like this but in the day's to come you will find comfort from those who loved Nick and who love you. Nick was a shy, quite, and truely nice young man. His love and sense of responsibility for his family was obvious, especially to anyone who ever saw him with his Grandma. I know that your pain will seem overwhelming at times; my prayer is that God will wrap his arms around each and every one of you, comfort you, and give you the strength that you will need to get through the difficult times ahead. He will see you through.

We love all of you and will be praying for you.
January 03, 2007
Words cannot express the total loss we feel, we both have holes in our hearts that will take forever to heal. Nick, you are our Hero and will be forever remembered. Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice.

He's in the very best of company now, Our beloved son, LCpl Leon B.Deraps USMC was killed in action 05/06/06 in Al Anbar. We are all a family forged of pain and loss, But I pray for us all to find peace and keep the joy of the times we had alive. This will test your faith as never before, but We find that the harder we lean on our Lord, Some how He carries us on. When it gets dark, force yourself, if you must, to say the Lords Prayer and Thank Him for the Blessing and privilege of have such a Bright Star in your life. The pain will stop your heart sometimes but the darkness will pass slowly but surely and the day will come when he pops into your head and you will smile again. God bless Them All. E-mail me if you wish.
PS I wrote this for our boy but you can share it. “If the Army and the Navy ever look on Heaven's scenes, they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines”. He still stands his post and he’s the one with the big grin, ear to ear.

To the Family of Lance Cpl. Nicholas A. Miller:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.
Proud Parents of SFC Brent A. Adams, KIA, 12/1/05, Ramadi, Iraq

The overwhelming heartache, seems to surface through our shock, as the time passes.
Please hang on to your Faith and know that you will get through this.
Ever so softly and slowly, time does heal.

May Lance Cpl. Nicholas A. Miller Rest Safely, in the Loving Care of God and know that he Will Never Be Forgotten.
I pray that the Peace of God will be with the Miller family.
I am the sister, of such a Young Hero, who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam, many years ago.
