what can I say about you that everyone doesn't already know? I probably knew you better then anyone. You were such a amazing friend, I know you would of done anything for me and Aubrey. You enriched my life so much. You taught me how to love myself, when I was just a dumb kid. You gave me the big family I never had, even through the tough times you never let me go. Our friendship is one of the sweetest and purest... our love will go on and exist forever. You are a soulmate to me and I know we will be linked forever. No words can express my heart ache right now, but I know you are with me still. To the Bondoc family, I love all of you. You are my family we've been through everything together and you all can count on me for anything. "

"Yesterday, I began writing this, and today I'm still at a loss for words. I want to extend to Nic's family my deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy for what you are experiencing. Nicodemus touched so many lives in a positive way that we're all left grieving with his sudden passing. It's in these times that I often revert back to a simple prayer:

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. The courage to change the things I can. And the wisdom to know the difference.

I know Nic's spirit will forever live on with those that knew him."

Topher Kent | Little Rock, AR

"I send my deepest condolences, to the family, and friends, of Nic. Such a force of nature. A great gift to the world, and to all those, that were privileged, to get to know, and love, this shinning, example, of individuality, and style. When I think back, when we got to know each other, that's what I saw. Always getting out there, and letting them have it. Always, with the amazingly funny, observations, on things, in life. He will be greatly missed. He was too young to die, yet, he will always be beautiful, smart, funny, and amazing, in my mind. "
