I didn't know Nickolas, but I am truly sorry. We buried my granddaughter last week. She was only 28 yrs. old. We never get over it, we just get use to it. We will always miss them. But, one thing about all this is, we have hope. Our hope is in the Messiah. We have His promises in His word. He will wake again. To him it will seen less than a second. To us it is longer. Rest assured that you will see him again. My deepest sympathy for all his family and friends.

My heart truly breaks for Lisa, as "Nicky" (as she so fondly called him) was and still is her heart and soul. I didn't know Nicholas personally - just of him. Lisa loved her son deeply as evidenced by the plethora of framed pictures lovingly placed throughout her home. The anguish at loosing such a vibrant well-loved and accomplished young man, at his prime, is simply heart breaking. I am deeply sorry for the deep hole he will leave on the hearts of his family and friends.
My deepest condolences to Lisa and the Flynn family and all his friends.

There was never a picture of us without a huge smile or laughs on our faces. It was always nothing but good times in your presence. Until we meet again brother.
