Nick loved basketball, was always supportive, showed up at every game, took stats. The kids all loved him. I have lots of good memories of him, Winna Mae, and the kids. I'm thinking of all the family, my prayers are with them. I know it's hard. I'll just miss you, Nick.

God bless all the Gage family. Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes on me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. John 11:25.

So sorry to hear of Nick's passing. My words are not sufficient to take away your pain. I can only tell you that I've know your daddy, granddaddy, brother, my entire life and a finer man could never be found. Winna Mae caught a good'un for sure. Only man I ever knew that could ever compare to Nick was his daddy "Little Bill" or his uncle "Mug".
I'll not be able to attend Nick's rememberence as I am on the camino in Louisiana.. Please accept my sincere prayers for a complete healing of all the pain you might be feeling at this time. Remember HE is always there for you to turn to.
Prayers and Blessings your way
