Nick, I Love You. Condolences for family, praying you to feel God's gracious presence more and more. I ran into Nick and Mickey up at Wolf Creek one time skiing. There was like 9 of us all skiing probably. I was with Nick and he hit a nasty jump that showed up out of nowhere and his knee bent backwards horribly. I thought oh no he blew his knee out! How do we get the snow mobiles up here. But ten seconds later he was up and skiing like nothing happened. I don't know if God miraculously healed Nicks leg or if he was double jointed or something.
Either way God was watching out for us then and His faithfulness does not waiver with ours. His mercy endures forever and His arms are open to us.
Love You Nick. Ride those heavenly bulls

Nick B....this is rough bud. It doesn’t seem like that long ago we were all playing on Lancelot st., Spending the night over at Chad & Dales, staying up all night, sneaking out to play around Keeler, & for me hearing Guns n Roses for the for first time. Thank you Jamie
Our friendship grew stronger and our adventures continued into middle school chasing girls and playing sports. You were smoother and more popular with the girls, your basketball skills were a bit better than mine, and football and track were about the only sports I had on you. I remember giving you a hard time for being on the Bteam. Later that day the A team scrimmaged the B team and during one play, you ran full blast at me and stuck me hard. I didn’t even have the ball, but you made sure to let me know how hard you could hit.
Going to highschool, experimenting far more than we should’ve, & traveling and going on road trips were what we did. Every winter going on at least two or three ski trips, going to Cancun for our senior trip , and after highschool flying to Vegas and Austin to party.
It was hard being your friend sometimes, especially as we got older but your heart like your sweet moms was always good and you loved the lord. Speaking of he Lord, I was surprised when you invited me to go to Church with you. It turned out to be a good surprise though. Thank you Leroy Jones for gettin Nick to go. I enjoyed going to church with you. Getting to know Novela, Leroy, & Rev. Meekums(I know that’s not spelled right) was special & getting to be around and listen to one of my and most of the communities favorite persons, Coach Pete Loftis preach the sermon was awesome. .Those times were really comforting for me because I knew that although Nick was struggling, he loved God and God had People( Novela, Leroy, Rev. Meekums, Coach Pete the Ashfords... and many more)
around him that saw his his goodness and were there to help.
Nick, you put us all through a lot of heck, a lot of the time and you did your own thing no matter what. We were really different in a lot ways just like you and just about everybody, but those that really knew you, enjoyed your fun happy go lucky personality and your gracious and helping heart.
Lynn you have always been an amazing and sweet mom to Nick, myself, Daniel, & the many others that went to your house. We all love you very much and if you need anything, let us know. I think I know oh well and you’ve always been independent so I know for sure when I’m in town, I’ll be coming by to visit. Love you
Nick, I know your in a better place and that’s comforting but this is hard. love ya and miss ya man.
