Words cannot describe the overwhelming gut wrenching sadness and anger we are all feeling at the loss of Nicholas. We had a strong bond and while Nick didn’t always get things right, he so desperately wanted to change his life for the better.

I hope that by donating your organs, the lives of others have been saved and you will live on with them. We hope they all lead a full life, something which was cruelly taken so suddenly from you. Night night, my beautiful special boy.
