I’m so sorry for Nick’s passing. He will be sorely missed as the friend and caring neighbor we came to rely upon. As our adopted “ranch foreman,” as Nick was proud to call himself, I will miss his laughter and words of advice and his warm pats for our dogs. Nick was always a special person to us. We send you our love.
