Here is what my daddy writes today in honor of my brother Nicholas Stephen Lock:
Four years ago today we were blessed with and then lost our son Nicholas. While the pain and loss hasn't gone away, it has lessened or maybe my perspective has just changed. The loss of Nicholas made it possible for our son Ryan to join us and while neither one could ever replace the other, we're thankful every day for Ryan. Nicholas is no longer here physically, but he is in spirit, so for now, I'm thankful for that as we celebrate his birthday, all of us together. Still miss you Nicky - Happy birthday buddy!!
