Tom, Mary Kay, and to Jean and sons, I was saddened to read of Nick’s all too early passing. I have fond memories of times on 5th Avenue thinking Nick was so cool and funny and your mom always having the pulse on on Nick and Tom! May your many memories keep his spirit alive in all the days ahead!
With Heartfelt Sympathy and prayers,

Jean and family, we are so saddened and our hearts go out to you. We had so much fun with Nick through our time with the S. T. Dodgers. He always had a quick wit and funny answer to make us laugh. We have so many great memories on the trips and at the field, especially with him behind the grill deep frying Oreos. Please know our thoughts are with you and the family,
