In Memory of Nikolaos Chase


From the time he was born, Nikolaos showed the world that he was a fighter.  Nikos, as he was affectionately called by his sweet mother Katie, was born on February 28, 2016, with a multitude of medical challenges which kept him hospitalized for nearly his entire first year of life.  Nikos was determined to thrive and flourish, despite the odds against him. 

After experiencing complications, and wrapped in the arms of his mother and step father, Nikos peacefully gained his angel wings on January 16, 2018. 


Nikos experienced many setbacks in his short life; however, you would never know this from his bright and infectious smile.  Nikos was loved by his devoted mother, Katie, stepfather Nasos, and his sisters, Hannah and Eva.  He was blessed to have experienced every season with his family, from the gift of the warm, spring sunshine on his face, to the joy that the Christmas season brings.


Nikos was loved and cherished by many, and will be dearly missed.  As a measure of support during this extremely heartbreaking and difficult time, this fund has been established to help cover impending funeral and medical costs.  Your gift, in any amount, would be greatly appreciated.  Please continue to pray for Katie and her family as they begin to navigate life without Nikos.
