5 Condolences for “NICHOLAS SLOOTWEG”

  1. Tanis (Felesky) Lockert says:

    I was so saddened to hear of Nick’s passing. I have not seen him since high school but always thought highly of him. Nick and I met in Miss Crisp’s class at Connaught and I remember being impressed because he was the first boy that was taller than me! As we progressed through the grades together, he was more than just a tall boy but he was one of the good guys with a sweet smile and a great sense of humour.
    My deepest condolences to his family. Definitely a life and a light gone too soon. May you find some comfort in knowing others share your grief and offer you sympathy and prayers.
