"Hello Nick's friends,
As you might have figured out, Nick has passed away this morning, 2 weeks to the day he was admitted into the hospital. He fought long and hard, and did much better than many others could have. They put him on so many painkillers, he was in complete peace when he died. He is going to be cremated per his request and there will be a memorial service sometime soon, probably in a few weeks. Thank you all so much for your prayers and wishes. Hopefully Nick is in a much better place now.
