    Unfortunately, the first year of many passed and it feels like it was yesterday Nick was here with us. I know he was looking out for us yesterday on his grievous anniversary because the weather was just so nice and beautiful! There’s no better time to remember Nick when everything else is so lovely. My heart still goes out to his family and friends.
