  1. My sincere sympathy to the family and friends of dear Nick. I had the privilege of getting to know and attend to him while I served as the Spiritual Care person at the Village of St. Edward in Fairlawn. He was such a gentle soul with a glorious smile who so enjoyed his faithful friends from the Diamond Grille. What a treasure he was to all who came to know him. We all have been truly blessed. May he rest in God’s loving embrace for all eternity.
    With prayers and God’s abiding peace,
    Sr. Marilyn Ambrosic, OP
