Nick, I'm honored to have known you! You were such a LOVELY man. I admire so many things about you. Thank you for your bravery and sacrifices in WWII. You're a REAL hero!  One memory that I often admire, is when you and Gina climbed Half Dome. And, just about 15 or so years ago- so, over 80 years of age! Nick, you lead such an admiral life. They don't come cooler than you, Nick! Miss you!

Dear Daddy and Grandpa Nick,
I can't believe you have entered God's Kingdom a year ago. You are always in my thoughts and not a day goes by that something I do  triggers a remembrance of you. You have given us all so much and asked for nothing in return. May God protect you for eternity. We love you always, See you later, alligator,xo,Re, Meng, Mia and Mark

Dear Daddy and Grandpa,
It's hard to believe you left us a year ago, yet I feel your presence and can still hear your voice everyday. I catch myself  saying things you would say, all the time, and have to chuckle how you truly live on in all of us. Loving you forever, your La and family XOXO
