Tomorrow is one of the most important milestones Nick will have in his life. He is graduating from school and starting his life as an adult.
We hope and pray for good things to come to him in his life - that he will always be surrounded by people who love him; that he will know the joy of hard work and restful leisure; and that he will always be treated with dignity and respect.
Nicks life has been a winding road - challenging and full of joys as well as deep sorrows for the people closest to him. But on a personal level, I believe in my heart that Nick himself is a happy individual and will continue to be so. All it takes is a look into those sparkling eyes to know he is happy on this earth.
He has taught us so many lessons about love, kindness, tenacity, patience, tolerance, hope, and courage.
Our friends and family have given so much of themselves and been so important in his life, and we know he will never walk alone. We dedicate this graduation scene from my favorite musical of all time, Carousel, to our Nick.
