I know Nick will be forever grateful for the memories of golfing with him a few days before our wedding, stories of fishing, woodworking, your rodeo days and the stories of what made you so amazing. You were a strong, honourable and amazing man who will forever be remembered in the hearts of those of us who spent time with you, especially in your later years. May you forever rest easy in the comfort of the angels arms.
    Love always Nick and Brandi Thomson
