Thank you Nik for showing me how important family really is!  Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

Nikki had a bright sunny smile often when he was in my first grade resource room at Stoney Creek school. I always got big hugs from Nik as he loved to share his affection often. Rest in the arms of angels and Jesus!

You were one of a kind, "Mr. Nik"! I enjoyed every minute of the time you spent in my classroom at Little Panthers Preschool, and the children did too. You sure had a gift with children! They loved you so much. I loved to watch you build blocks and do puzzles with them. I will miss your smile and laugh most of all.  God bless you, family!  Barb Pilichowski ("Mrs. P.)
