    Prayers for Peace for your family at this difficult time. Nick was a good friend to my brother Eugene (Gene Karkut) from grammar school at SMC in the 60’. He was also one of the 16th and Wesley, “Park Boys”. A fine group of neighborhood boys who respected God, Family- (including extended) and Authority. RIP Nick. Thanks for All the memories.
