Andy and family, my sincere condolences on the passing of your father, grandfather. Nick or my Nicky as I would call him always and will continue to have a special place in my heart when I cared for him and now. Not a day went by that I did not think of him and wished I was able to care for and be with him. My Nicky was awesome, he was my protector when he thought I was in harm and gave me tons of hugs. RIP My Nicky, spread your huge Angel wings around all who loved you and you loved. You will always be close in my heart forever.
