Our heartfelt sympathy to Nicky, Rosemary, Marian and their families on the passing of their Dad. Uncle Nick was a loving, kind and just such a wonderful human being. He will certainly leave a void in the people that knew him. What an honor to be with him on his 100th Birthday. Our deepest and sincere condolences.

We were fortunate to meet Nick when Marian married my brother. I remember his warmth, humor and wit when we talked at the wedding. I wish we had met him sooner but we were very lucky to have known him. He was a wonderful man and we were privileged to know him.
