On a personal note: Both myself & Anthony thought the world of Nick. He grew up with our oldest son. They were very close at one time. An Memoriam never really tells the history of a person, their personality, whom they really were as a person, or how much they meant to someone. Nick was a really sweet boy.
I didn’t realize just how quickly time passed; it gets away from us.
I can’t even remember the last time that I had seen Nick in passing or talked to him, but I do remember the last time he came to visit me. He drove up to show us his new motorcycle. We talked for two or three hours, about what, I don’t remember. He wanted to show me how much weight he had lost & his new boots. Silly things really, but importantly enough to him, at the time, to want to share it with me.
I only wish I had followed up with him more. I didn’t really see him much after that. He didn’t come to visit. I do remember a conversation, we had later, about his buying a house & having a small dispute with the little lady next door over a property line survey that he’d done. He laughed and said, “I don’t care. I love it, she’s trimming my bushes, so that I don’t have too!” [It stuck in my mind.]
It may seem like lot’s of uninteresting small talk to people, but ours lives consist of lot’s of little seemly unimportant events, small talk if you will, our day to days, but we should share them more often with our family and friends. Trust me, it won’t bore them. Don’t let years pass without calling and saying, “Hey! I bought a new________ or do you like my boots? Its the little things that mean the most.
Nick passed away, too young, in my opinion, but grew into a wonderful family man with two beautiful children and that is something to be very proud of.
I wish, only the best his family, his children, you’ll forever be in my prayers. May God bless and comfort you always.
Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows. ~ Pope Paul VI
