Truly a great, one-of-a-kind man. It was a real privilege for me and my family to know and love him. He was warm, generous, and very kind, with never a hint of malice. He enjoyed life and set a wonderful example of what it means to be a humble but very mighty man. Rest in peace, Nick. Love, Marilyn
