A tribute from Dad
To my dearest Son, the shiniest star in the sky,
Just one of my fondest memories was when you were 17 years old and brought home a 1984 fox body mustang 5.0, you asked me if you could keep it in the yard. I said yes not knowing that you had to have it towed home. My first reaction was “oh great we’re going to get sited by the city for having this eye sore in our yard”. It didn’t even run! Three days later he and his friends had it running. I couldn’t believe it when he asked me if I would like to go for a ride in it. “It runs now” he said. I reluctantly agreed even though it didn’t have plates on it. (He was famous for driving with no plates, expired plates or temp tags.) Anyway, we took his car to the park down the street. He looked over at me, with that smile only he had, and asked “could we do a doughnut”. Of course, I was reluctant but agreed to go along with it saying “ok”. Nick ended up doing 8 or 10 in a row, I started begging him to stop holding on for dear life, but I have to admit it was a lot of fun.
I learned a lot from my son, Nick. He put time and effort to fix things that most people would junk. He was giving, caring, and had a big heart. Anyone would tell you that. It made me very proud to see him make something out of nothing. He had a passion for cars and he learned to be a mechanic all on his own. His rewards were so much more than money. His sense of accomplishments came from time spent with friends and family making of memories and having fun.
The only thing he loved more than working on cars was spending time with his daughter, Audrina. From a father point of view, there is nothing in this world more priceless than that. I love you Nick. I will forever miss you.
Until we meet again,
