I work with Jenny Lynn. I heard the news and broke inside thinking about this. Somehow any words that come to mind don’t seem right. I’m sorry for what happened to you and your family and he really looked like a Good good man… wish I could have met him. Prayers sent out from me and thinking about you all today…

Nick when we would pop by the house to see what y’all were doing when me and Elmer were bored is a memory. We all spent some time together and you are not only a friend but family as well. Going by the house and you’re not there is a weird feeling to have now. We don’t have our random pop ins anymore. From all three of our families we will miss you. We love you now be at rest and enjoy a forever sunset with Boomer on the boat. Till we see eachother again bud. We love you so much. – Rachel Dozier
