So sorry for your loss. May Nick RIP.
Thoughts and prayers with you all.


These are the times when community provides support to family and friends.

Nicky was beloved by so many people. One of the most unforgettable memorials I have ever witnessed. Thank you Joe, Cathy and A. J. And Natalie for sharing Nicky with us.

It was a gift to know him. God Bless.

I thought Fr John Ryan did an outstanding Job.He to offered me some good counsel many years ago.Nick would be so proud of a over following church for his service God bless him. He will never be forgotten.


I will pray for you and your son. God will do the rest.


Joe and Cathy, I'm so very sorry for the loss of your son. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.


Unbelievable sorrow for your loss, Joe, Cathy, A.J. and Natalie. The heartfelt support shown by this community towards your family throughout this ordeal has been amazing...Saturday was truly an experience not to be missed; so many people coming together, to be together.


Lost a son at 3 mos old. Can't imagine losing one at 23. So very very sorry for the loss of your beloved son.

When will a cure be found for this disease that is affecting more and more young lives?


I didn't know your son, but it seems he was a good man. That usually means he had good parents. You should be proud.

I will attempt to honor his memory.

I enjoy your blog.

Joe and Cathy, I'm very sorry for your loss. Your son being so ingrained in the Burlingame community is not only a testament to you as role models but his memory lives on through the many people he touched. That impact can never be taken away.

Love and prayers to you and your family.

Thank you all for your beautiful thoughts. Our family truly appreciates the love and support we have received and is why we love our small town so much. Love all of you and Burlingame xo

Joe and Cathy, to say I am shocked at hearing about Nicky's passing is an understatement. When he came through BIS I had the pleasure of having your intelligent and creative son and he was a joy. I don't know if I ever saw him after age 14, but I do see A.J. around town every once in a while. I still remember blasting Nicky for bringing the same gumball machine for the Rube Goldberg project that A.J. used two years before! He will be so missed and my heart goes out to you all. My brother died last year and my Mom is still working through it. I don't know if it ever ends. Love you, Nicky! Now put on a Giants Hat and get rid of the Yankees Gear! Or was that A.J.?

Take care,

Mr. Osberg



Thank you, Jeff. I remember volunteering in the Rube Goldberg class and enjoying watching the kids actually try to build something. AJ was the Yankees fan, but he has gotten over it! Sorry to hear about your brother.......

Cathy Baylock

Thank you Mr. O. You were one of Nicky's favorite teachers. Your kind words help ease this mother's grief. xo
