Words could never adequately express how grateful Ernie and I are for Nick being here at home with us as we devote this year to battling myeloma. He willingly, and without hesitation, left his new life in California to return to the east coast and help us.
From yard sales,
to yard work,
to digging fence posts,
to entertaining and holding nephews and neices,
to wiring and all sorts of handyman work,
to keeping us laughing,
to working at his rather usual job very late at night,
to moral support,
Nick has been there for us every step of the way. He is a son every parent could be proud of and we are so grateful that God blessed us with him some 24 years ago. His sense of humor, quick wit, unselfish heart and willingness to help however and wherever needed, are traits we love about him. He has matured and taken on alot more responsibility these past 8 months, and it is a joy to see him growing into the man we dreamed he would be. Hopefully he will be able to continue enjoying his passion for traveling to various worldwide destinations such as the jungles of Central America,
and then eventually settle down and pursue dentistry and orthodontics in the future (yes, this is primitive denistry at its best!).
We love you Nick and thank you so much for walking with us during the good and bad times.
