To Nicks family & Friends / Molly Lewis
October 20th, 2003 I lost my boyfriend Brian of 4 years to a motorcycle accident. Brian was at the age of 23 years old. My thoughts and feelings go out to Nicks family & friends because in some way I know how you feel and what you are going though. I learned of Nicks accident though his mother Joni. There never seems to be the right word to say to make it all better. But just know that there will be good and bad days ahead for you and please don't let anyone tell you it's time to move on. There is never any give time when someone should move on from a loss. You should cherish and remember Nick with all of his memories for the rest of your lifes. It is his memories that will make Nick live on with all of you. With that here is part of a reading I read at Brians funeral... Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget!! Close

~.~/ Forever BrokenHearted
I wrote your name on a piece of paper, but by accident I threw it away.
I wrote your name on my hand, but it washed away.
I wrote your name in the sand, but the waves whispered it away.
I wrote your name in my heart, and forever it will stay. Close
i couldnt even say all i have to say. there is so much going on in my life right now.since your looking down on us, give some good luck seem like the last year of my life has been the worst in 21 years. when i got word of your accident in the middle of football practice i didnt blink. oh nick was in an accident i figured you had a couple scraps maybe a broken bone(not from me this time) i never thought that on sept 20 that we'd lose you to me you were super man. no matter what happend you never got in trouble, lol i did! i guess my bad luck is the worst luck a best friend can have. the day i lost you was the most insane thing i have ever experianced i still feel like im lost i dont kow what to do without you? my world is flipped upside down and inside out right now! i cant get back on track w/o you. im scared off what tommorow brings i dont want anything like this to ever happen to anyone. before all this i looked at life as if it was granted to eveyone and it's just a life. thats prolly why god is punishing us by taking you form us. i cant stop the tears nick! help me understand why?
My Wing Man / Eric Miller (Best Friend )

Gone but not 4gotten! / David Perez (Friend) (Knee-co-las) Nick, Nick, Nick. What to say. So much to say from so many people besides myself. Well I'm going to say what I remember most about you. I had the honor of being a part of your life for about 4 years. Man I still remember the first time I met you. It was a family picnic at your parents house. You accepted me into your house and we talked and joked around. Seems we did that alot from making fun of Holly! j/k I remember we stayed up all night playing Need 4 speed, watching "pimp my ride," and oh, playing poker with pennies for a big pot of $15.00!! Woohoo! And so you know, me and Holly cheated, so that is why she won! LOL. Or I mean, we won! I miss you alot man, and I can't beleive this happened. I feel for your family so much and if I could give my life for them to have yours back, I would. Everyone misses you and cries. Love you man, rest in peace.....Close

A Light For Nick / Karen Gosselin (Friend (grieving mom) )
Someone shared this with me on our website, I thought I'd share it with you all too....
Pain and suffering is to its end in Nick's life We shall not weep for Nick, for he is now in a place of beauty Where there is no war, no hate, and no death Eternal life is to be brought forth through God by a soft glowing flame: Strong enough to hold all his children Containing a prayer that which all prayers are made, A life, that which all lives are created. You can't see this flame, yet you always know it is there. You can't touch this flame, yet you can always feel its presence Nick has now seen God, and God has a need for him. So, you see, Nick did not die, he was reborn.
I WILL LOVE AND REMEMBER YOU FOREVER NICK / DAD (DAD)Read >>
I WILL LOVE AND REMEMBER YOU FOREVER NICK / DAD (DAD)
NICK I LOVE YOU MORE AND MORE EVERYDAY.
At one time my life was GREAT, I had three miracles that happened to me and that was the birth of my three children.God gave me the gift of life in all three. Nick was my last, and it was special since I was fortunate to get a son. It really did not matter at the time because I was blessed with two daughters and would have been blessed no matter what. On June 8, 1985, not only was Nick born, but what Nick came to be was my best friend.I was blessed for twenty years of Nick in my life, from being a baby, growing up with the Ninja Turtles; to truly the best person I have ever met in my life. Nick always welcomed anyone who would want to play, hang out, or just be friends. His smile spread happiness everywhere. He went on to Little League, excelled in school, and sports. Nick always gave it his all, to what he did and the people he met. He was truly special in every way. As my son (buddy) we grew day by day together more and more. We did so many things together throughout his life. That was always my special time. As Nick grew older I had the privilege of being with him every day. I will always remember the hugs, kisses, and talks we had about his life, career, what he wanted to be, the goals he had, cooking out, and working on cars (taking my tools), playing basketball in the back yard, golfing and poker with the boys. I have saved all the special cards from all my wonderful children, and can only read his to remember what we had together. People will never understand what we had in each other which is OK because it will always remain special in my heart each and everyday. On the saddest day of my life, September 20, 2005, I lost not only my son, but my best friend. I never have to look back at the memories and say “I wish I would have”, or “I wish I had done this with Nick”, I have the memories that will last my life time. I will always have the memory of giving him that morning our last hug and kiss on that terrible day. The time we spent together, 20 years are all great, just that “great memories”, but forever in my heart I will always want more. The tears and heart ache everyday will never go away, and I would never want them to, because Nick will be in my thoughts, prayers, and most of all my heart. When you love someone as much as I love Nick, you must set them free, and if they return, it was meant to be. I know in my heart he will return to me someday because I know it was meant to be, “I’ll see ya again someday.” Love forever and always Nick, DAD.
It's like a bad dream that plays over & over in my head, Of things I wish I'd done or words I would of said. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you, Even after all this time,what am I going to do?
Maybe this is the way mothers are suppose to feel, Perhaps our wounds are never intended to heal. If I could ask but one question why, How is it God could need you more than I?
Wanted to say how truly sorry I am for your loss / Season Lechner (None)
I didn't personally know Nick, but I knew of him. I was in a few classes in high school with Katie, and my little sister Brienn went to school with Nick. I made a site for my Dad on here, and that's how I stumbled upon Nick's site. I know all too well the pain that you are feeling, and I am so sorry for your loss. My sister said that Nick was a wonderful person and had so much going for him. Try to take one day at a time, even though that can be overwhelming at times. You have made a wonderful site to honor your brother and I'm sure he's proud. My deepest condolences to the entire Dams family.
From an Angel on high a tender message of love was softly whispered into the ear of this humble scribe....
Weep not for me now that I have passed. Remember the laughter, the affection, the joy not just the recent tears. Cherish the memories, our hopes and dreams. Hold fast to the love that we shared. Be happy with the time we spent together and being anew. For I am not really gone, I am closer than ever before. As the morning sun rises and throughout the busy day...I am with you. Until the setting sun disappears on the horizon and we watch the day turn into night...I am here. You may feel a faint breeze stir round your head, while you slumber as I gently kiss your forehead, "Good night." The stars that shine so brightly in my heavenly sky help me watch over you and keep you from harm. I am the wind in the trees and the song of a bird. I am moonbeams in a midnight sky and a glorious rainbow after the storm. I am morning dew and freshly-fallen snow. I am a butterfly flying overhead and a puppy happily at play. I am a smile on a stranger's face a gentle touch a warm embrace. Listen to the wind for my message of love. Watch the sun rise and set in the sky with me. Feel my essence encircle you with warm memories. Open your heart to know...I am not gone. Reach deep into your soul...You will find me. I am here. Have no fear. I am with you, Always.
