"When visiting during Hazelton-Miller annual family picnics, Nick loved talking sports and playing horseshoes with the guys (and gals). He was always eager to participate. Frieda ? I can?t imagine your pain. May all the good memories sustain you until Nick appears in your dreams to comfort you. ?Janice"
