My son, Nicholas Mannery, one of the loves of my life, left this world suddenly on May 31. He embodied the life of the party, the first to crack a joke with his magnetic personality, and was a loving son, brother and father. As a mother, I wanted nothing more to save him, but even a mother's strength is sometimes not enough. The world has just become a little bit darker without him in our lives. As we prepare for his eternal life into heaven, we are asking for your support to give Nicholas the appropriate transition into everlasting life with his loving grandparents, Clem & Virginia Mannery, his beloved uncle and godfather, Clem Mannery Jr. , Aunt Ginny Mannery, and brother Matthew Richardson.
