  2. I am very saddened to read about Nick’s passing. I remember him well as a kind bright boy who was a shining light in the classroom.

    “[Death is] to lose the earth you know, for greater knowing; to lose the life you have, for greater life; to leave the friends you loved, for greater loving; to find a land more kind than home, more large than earth.” —THOMAS WOLFE,
