The memorial service for Nicholas was beautiful. Stacey was surrounded by her friends, her boyfriend, Rick and his son Alex, Maya and Debbie Rowland, her sister Mary from Greece, her brother Peter from Northern California, and her close friends, Tom & Kathy Hicks and their family.

Nicholas had many friends and touched the lives of all he encountered. In attendance at the memorial were friends, classmates, teachers, coaches... it was heartwarming to see all of the love and support for Nick and his family.

Stacey and her boys and family are holding up as well as you would expect. The days of planning and organizing, visiting with friends helped to get her through those first tough days. Now the reality and missing her son is really hitting her. Please keep her in your prayers and give her a call or text or email if you can reach out.

There is a possibility that her son, Josh, may decide to stay in California to stay close and take care of his Mom. He will be going back to school and starting a new job and will need to find a car. Please put the word out to your network of friends, associates, to see if you know someone who is thinking of selling a car in the $3,000 - $4,000 range. Josh would need to make payments on the total cost.

Stacey and her family are so grateful and touched by the kindness of everyone who has donated to Nicks Memorial Fund. Thank you so much! Every dollar is appreciated and is helping with the funeral expenses. Please continue to share the link to the fund. If we can reach the fund goal, it would be a huge blessing to Stacey in this difficult time.

All my best to all of you. Keeping Stacey close in thought and prayers through this holiday season.
