Yesterday a full house joined us to say goodbye to Nicolas Bado. The stories of his life, the happiness and strength that others found in him filled the room with his essence and beautiful spirit. So many spoke of him during the service and used the words loving, happy, wonderful father, leader, great husband, funny, generous and even a bit wild and gossipy! You were a total package Nico - and we love you. You and your family will forever be in our hearts.
The pastor put it perfectly, quoting Dr. Seuss: 'Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.'
We hope that this fund will continue to raise money for the Bado family - and in the great hope that we can far exceed our original goal we plan to leave this site running for another week.
So many people have shown their love and shared their memories of Nico on Facebook & through this memorial fund for Annmarie and their two beautiful children Landon and Brynn.
Each donation, each message and each time this link is shared - it brings the Bado family a piece of comfort. Please continue to share and update - and let's see if we can far surpass our original goal!
We want to make sure that everyone who would like to, comes out to celebrate Nico's life this Tuesday at 1PM at Cost Hills Community Church in Aliso Viejo.
Please continue to share the service details. Nothing would make a bigger impact than a full house.
On Monday evening, Nicolas Bado was the victim of a fatal car accident. Because we know so many people want to do something, we have set up this donation site. Our hope is that this page empowers Nico's friends and family to bond together, show their support, and share their condolences.
Nico was a devoted husband and father, a great friend, a football fan, a hard worker and a talented grill master. We know that his enthusiasm and generous spirit will live on through Landon and Brynn.
Nico loved his family more than anything in the world, and would want nothing more than to know his children and wife are supported. Please join us in honoring him - he would have been the first to do so for another.
The beneficiaries of this fund are Nico's beautiful wife Annmarie and his two sweet children, Landon and Brynn.
