This afternoon I attended Nick Longland’s memorial. There were a ton of people there, lots of guys from our Grad ’90 class plus family friends and many of the guys from his hockey team. Nick was such a nice guy, always happy and so friendly. I always had a quick two minutes with him when I was at the Blackfin for lunch. I was talking to some of the other guys at his memorial and we were saying how we’ve got to stop sweating the small stuff, to enjoy life and love our friends and families. You just never know when your time is up. I know Nick was one of those rare guys who had a great balance between family and friends, work and play. He lived a full life and I’ll miss him. RIP buddy.
Here is Nick’s memorial from the Record.
