“Sad as the loss of Nicholas is, I was very moved and uplifted by your story, your straightforward way of speaking the truth and sharing your love for God and family. For an entire afternoon you had my rapt attention, taking me through ups and downs, making me laugh and cry sometimes at the same time. Your story has lingered with me since. I know it is not over. I do hope to read more of your writing or hear you speak sometime soon.”
