    I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of Nick. He was a good neighbor and one of the first to welcome us to Penn Street. My condolences to your family.

    It was always nice to see Nick, who never seemed to lose his sly smile no matter what was going on around him. His kids and grandkids would be running around, acting crazy, and he would just look around smiling, enjoying the action. He was a good man, who was always kind to me and the rest of David’s crazy friends dropping by all the time. He and Angie always welcomed us. We will miss him. My condolences to his family. We’re thinking of you.
