    Nick was our coworker and most importantly our friend. He was a great person and we all respected his hard work, his character and his integrity. He liked to tease and joke around with all of us at the pharmacy, and we always knew that he was just joking. He was always ready to listen and to lend a hand to help us out. We always enjoyed hearing about his trips to Florida and the good times that he had there with Tasha and her family. He also talked about the trips to the racecar track with Nick Jr. and his visits to Cape Girardeau to go fishing with Damon. He loved all of the time he spent with his grandkids and was a very proud grandfather. Nick conveyed to me that he was very grateful for the support of his wonderful family and friends during his illness. We miss Nick and we will never forget him. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Nick?s family.

    My favorite memory of Nick is that his greeting to me was always “Hi Sunshine!”. I will miss sharing conversations with him at the pharmacy. It is certainly a loss of one of the good ones in the world. My condolences.
