I'd like to express my condolences to Nick's family. My dad, Alex Berzansky, talked so highly of Nick or Nicky ,as my dad called him. I heard Nick's name mentioned so many times in our home. My dad considered Nick a good friend ,I am sure they have met in Heaven and enjoying each other's friendship again.
