My Story

Our fearless Nicholas was our angel on Earth for just over 15 years. An amazing son, brother, friend, Nicholas lived courageously prior to and during his battle with leukemia. "Live with Purpose" was the motto Nicholas adopted at the age of 11. Each day of his life was filled with hard work, dedication, honesty, compassion, a sincere love for living and of course laughter. Nicholas was diagnosed with Leukemia on Septemebr 1, 2010. He fought, uphill, for 10 months. He encountered many setbacks due to side effects and the course of this ravaging disease. He never lost hope or the sparkle in his beautifully brown eyes. Our lives have been so rich having him walk his Earth journey with us as his family. We miss seeing him every day and being able to touch him. We will treasure the time he was here with us and look forward to our eternity in heaven together.
