Penny, We are so saddened to hear of Nick's passing. I didn't even know he had been battling this since 2017. Please know you will be in our prayers for healing. David and Robin Tabler (Vanderau)

I didn’t know Nick until recently and that was through our common love for his Riggo. I so enjoyed sending Nick the latest updates of Riggo’s adjustment to VA life. His responses may have been short, but often with humor and kindness. I wish circumstances surrounding our relationship had been different, but being a Christian I know he is in a wonderful place. My sincere condolences to your family.
