Kim, Bryan, Nicole and Jordan,
My family and I are keeping you all, in our thoughts and our prayers. May Nicks legacy live on in the lives of all whom he has touched. Especially Jordan, so young to lose such an influential Uncle, and his Uncle Nick was far too young to leave this earth.
Meeting Nick when he was a teenager, working with his Grandfather at Tighe Industries was a hoot. He was a funny guy back then wearing his WWE tshirts. Lol
And I was truly happy when he tutored Kayla when she was in Orendorf Elementary. She really liked him and he helped her so much.
And then quite a few years later, he came to my rescue by carrying me into my home the night I partied too hard with you all at the Manchester Fire Company dance. I'll never forget that Kim told me I wrapped my arms around his neck and told him that I loved him. And I did. I loved him then and I love him now. As so many others do.
He was an all around nice guy, and heartwarming, smooth talking, smack talking, joke cracking, loyal, dependable, respectable man. The whole Aldinger family is a respectable family. It troubles me that I couldn't come to the services Friday night. I don't do good with those kinds of things. Know that I and the entirety of my immediate family are thinking of each of you and have nothing but love and admiration for you all. Prayers will go up for you all on a regular basis.
You are loved by us all. May God bless and keep you in everything you think, say or do.

So much sorrow and not enough words to say how special Nick was to so many. I consider myself blessed to have known him. Whenever I hear a Luke Combs song I will smile and think of him. Keeping the entire family and extended family in my thoughts and prayers. Watch over us all Nick!

Big Nick,

You were one of the first people my I met when i came to the fire service. The summer of 2013 will always be a special one - we had a great crew. Fast forward a few more years and you were driving me on MICU 89-5 and good times were had again. Thanks for some great memories. You were a true brother and You'll never be forgotten.
