As I was looking at your web page I noticed that you did not have my fathers current information. As you can see from the attachment my dad  Stanley K. Nicholls passed away on 2-29-08. Thankfully he did not really suffer and his loving family was there. He will be missed. He was not only my father he was my best friend and I loved him dearly. He is now on Eternal Patrol.
Thank-you very much,
Michael K. Nicholls
