I met Nick at H & R Block. It was truly a blessing. I saw Nick in that crowed waiting area, and I ask God if He would let Nick be my friend. My prayer was answered. Before I knew it, the receptionist bought Nick to my desk and we have been friends for almost 30yrs. So now I’m going to ask for another favor, Lord Jesus embrace Nick with Your love and give him peace. I will always cherish our friendship and will miss him terribly.
