      Thank you for continued prayers and thoughts. Morgan, Drew and I are lost without Nikki here on Earth with us. There are no words to express the emptiness that Nikki’s passing has left. Nikki thought it was funny that Tom had to face me, after Tom pulled into the driveway with Nikki. Tom said, “How fast did we go?” Nikki said, “100 miles an hour!” Tom wasn’t on my “cup of tea” list…

    My wife and I send our condolences to you and your family. I didn’t know Nikki but Tom always talked very highly of him and the pick of him and Tom in the vette, well you can see the happiness on his face. Our prayers and thoughts are with you in this difficult time.
