"Today we bury his body, but not his soul; his hands, but not his good work; his heart, but not his love." With those words, we said goodbye to Dad last week.
The services and the week's events would have pleased Dad very much - family and long time friends gathered together, sharing tears, memories, and much laughter. He would have beamed with pride over his children and their families posing for portraits together, would have loved the impromptu and highly competitive soccer game that broke out between his grandkids, and would have smiled as he availed himself of the steady stream of amazing food visited upon us all by the community.
I really want to thank you all. I have been surrounded by love and support these past few weeks, and the SI family has been a big part of that. I can't begin to describe how much that means to me.
You can call me NIK

This is truly a profound and beautiful truth! Peace.

I am disappointed that you didn't jump into that soccer game though.
