Good afternoon son, today you would have been 44, what a beautiful life you could have had. My mind is always wondering what amazing things you would have accomplished and today is no different. We tried to live out your dreams but they were your dreams, not ours so we didn't succeed, at least we tried and you know this. Hoping you are having a Beautiful Heavenly Birthday. I love you eternity, MOM

It's 23 years today my son and I miss you as if it were one second after your passing. COVID-19 has changed our world as you knew it. This is the first time in the 23 years that we have not been able to pay our respects at your place of rest. I'm so sorry and believe me when I say, MY HEART IS SO BROKEN!!!!!! Rest easy my angel!

Nik, I never met you and yet I feel I know you. I feel I've seen your twinkling eyes and mischievous grin. I feel I've met you a thousand times and was always left with a warm, positive feeling each time. The fact that I feel your love is a testament to how you lived your short life and how blessed the world was to have you before God needed you back. I mourn your loss and pray for your mum every day, son. I know she cant wait to see you again but I'm hoping you can wait a whole lot longer before that happens.

Nike Diaz, I got alot of love for you, everyone still has love for you. It's so much I can say about you and the beautiful family you come from. What I will share is my last personal memory with you driving me around in your mom blue Cavalier. Ir was early August "97" and you were ready to go school in Rhode Island and you were kicking knowledge to me about staying out the street life and not getting in anymore trouble. Funny how I gave you my word that day I wasn't going back, I'm 3 years and 2 days older than and I'm taking your advice. One of the reasons I've never been back to the streets. I'm in college now. Thank you. You were a great person taken away far to soon.
January, they wouldn't understand.

My son, oh how I miss you. Today would have been your 40th birthday, we've missed so many. I keep thinking of all the things you weren't allowed to do in your life and it angers me so. I know you would have done great things for everyone in your life and for yourself. By this time I should have had at least 1 grandbaby from you, but that too was taken from us. Please keep watch over us, I love you with all my heart and soul, and miss you with every breath I take.

My brother you will ALWAYS be. You and your family came into my life when I felt I had no one. From day one I was the little sister and for that I will be eternally grateful. You made sure that I stayed out of trouble both in school and out. I don’t know what I would have done or became when I was younger without both you and Blaze making sure I wasn’t doing something dumb. So many memories, I hope I have made you proud brother. You were such an amazing person with such a huge heart and it still shows after all of these years whenever someone talks about you. Happy Birthday brother

His Life
January 6, 2020
Nicholas, Nik as what he loved to be called was one of the most loving, caring, sincere individuals I had the privilege of knowing and the honor of being the one chosen to be his mother.

He was a normal young man, as far as teenagers go, but had something extra special about him. Since birth, he always had this certain sparkle that made him shine wherever he went.  People were drawn to him because of his charm and thoughtfulness.

He cared so very deeply about everyone in his life, especially his family.  His brothers Michael and Tim were extra special to him, he wanted to be like them both, but had to chose to become his own person with a little bit of his brothers.

Oh his graduation day, instead of celebrating his accomplishment, he celebrated me.  He received his diploma, walked behind the curtain and came out with a bunch of flowers and balloons that read, THANK YOU!  I was so proud of my boy.

Nik was never ashamed to be seen with me, like a lot of teenage kids are.  We'd be walking down the street and he always made sure I was on the inside, when we went places, he'd open the doors for me.  He'd hold my hand when crossing the street as to protect me.

He dreamed big and planned on what his life was going to be like.  At the time he left this earth he already had set 5 and 10 year goals. Who does that?  No typical teenager I'd ever met.

His 5 year goal was to finish college, get his Entrepreneur degree, and start up my restaurant in Virginia Beach.  His 10 year goal, was to be living at the beach in Virginia Beach with his wife and his 1 child, he never mentioned the gender his child would be, or what he prefered, but I KNOW he would have been an amazing dad.

He adored his niece Shakira and his nephew Jelani.  Watching him with these 2 children seemed like he was a born to be a dad, unfortunately, his life was cut way too short and he never go the opportunity to do that.

I MISS my boy so very much, his hugs were the best, his smile lit up a room and his height made me feel safe.  He was just a great kid.  Every single day there is something to remind me of him.  Time does NOT heal all wounds, we just learn to go through life differently.  Nothing is ever the same, not matter what I try, my Nik will always be in my heart and on my mind.

Most days I wonder what my life would have been like had he still been here, I do know, I would NOT have had to go through what I've been through if he were here.

I pray my boy is resting peacefully and in the protection of our lord God!

When Nik was 4 years old, we were riding in a bus, going back home from downtown. I sat him next to me but when the bus stopped, he thought for some reason I was going to leave him and he started screaming DON'T LEAVE ME!  That was probably the move embarrassing day of my life.  Everyone was staring at me and I kept telling him I'm not leaving you, I would never leave you.

A few weeks later, I signed up for my GED classes and low and behold, the woman that would be my teacher was the woman sitting behind us on the bus that dreadful day.  Talk about not knowing where to put your face.  I had to explain to this woman that I had never left my child anywhere, and she looked at me like she didn't believe me.  I thought, LORD what will I have to do to convince this woman otherwise, and will this episode of Nik's control the outcome of my grade!!!
