Very sad to hear of Nick's passing. He and his son's helped move my parent's from Cedar Crest to a house on Saratoga Circle many years back when my family was going through hard times. Left a memorable impression on all of us. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. May he rest in peace. God bless!

My condolences to all of the loved ones of Nick, especially his family. I spent many hours through the years sitting in the drive thru talking to Nick. He was a good man who truly cared about all of his "kids". I am honored to have known him and blessed to have the memories of our visits. May God bless and comfort you!

Sorry to hear of Nick's passing. I've known Nick since 1961 when I came to So Miss as a freshman football player. He was the most likeable and most intertaining person ever on our team. If Nick couldn't bring a smile to your face, nobody could. He was loved by all his teammates.
RIP dear friend.

I will never forget Nick when I showed up in Petal in 1980 and had the chance to teach and coach his son Buddy. What a great man Nick was.

God rest his soul in your hands,
