    I remember one snowy night after a movie we me, you and Louis Burwell got picked up from the theater and we did donuts in the field by Wessington Elem. and you decided it would be funny to also go pee your name in the snow on someones front steps. Crazy memory to share with everyone but it was a fun night that I got to spend with you and I will remember that and ever other memory I have ever shared with you. You were a really great friend who will be missed greatly by so many. I love how any donation is going to the humane society and that is so you because we all know how much you loved cats. I wish you were still here and I never had to say these words but I miss you, I love you and goodbye.

    I remember the last few times we talked, we were planning our escape from Hendersonville. We had talked of getting what few things we needed and driving until we found a place that just “felt right” as you put it. I argued with this concept saying that there was a possibility that we would never find this place. I was worried about money, food, shelter, leaving friends and family behind, basically throwing everything we knew away and starting over. I guess you could say I was almost certain we would fail. Somehow, through all the doubt I had, you convinced me it was a good idea. You taught me to stop worrying about the “what-if’s” and just do what felt right and makes you happy. You taught me to stop holding back what I am and find what is out there for me with trial and error. Everything you have shown me or taught me has proven to not only be true, but has been a big contributing factor to who I am today. You called me your brother and I am honored to call you mine. The pain everyone of us are feeling is something we never wanted to endure. I’m sure if you would have known the pain we would feel, you wouldn’t have even thought about doing this. You were too good of a person to intentionally cause this much pain and heartbreak. In one message you told me that you have to get out of Hendersonville or else you would kill yourself. You were joking, but now I wonder if there was some seriousness to this comment. Nikki said it perfect when she said that we wished we didn’t have to say these words. I miss you. You had a heart big enough to love more people than I could count, but I bet you could count every single one. Your heart was pure. Your personality was genuine. Your attitude was real. Your legacy is forever. I thank you for everything you have taught me and for all the times we shared. We always had a good time, regardless of the circumstances. I hope you have now found the right place you were always telling me about. You are not with us anymore, but your spirit will live on through our memories and our actions. You influenced more people than you are aware of. That is a quality that I have always wanted to learn from you. You were the best in my opinion. You said we would leave this hellhole together and I wish it hadn’t happened this way. Nick, I love you brother and you better be saving me a seat right next to you in heaven. I’m sure you have a good one. I will see you on the other side. I’m sure of it. Until then, watch over all of us as we try to find our way through this impossible rubix cube called life.

    Peace and Love,
