    Mrs. Nick was always kind and welcoming every time I met her. Whenever she knew I was coming in town she made sure to cook me up some chicken spaghetti. To the Nickerson family (quoting Jonathan McReynolds) "May your struggles keep you near the cross And may your troubles show that you need God And may your battles end the way they should And may your bad days prove that God is good And may your whole life prove that God is good."
