Condolences for the family of “NICHOLAS J. FORMICA”

Condolence from Donna Formica Kick on December 1st, 2010 12:41 pm

Dear Tom and Nancy,
Please accept my condolences on the death of your father. Three years ago my sister Regina and myself stopped at uncle’s house in Wickliffe but no one answered the door. I would have loved to see him. I was in Cleveland in September of this year visiting high school friends, maybe we can reunite someday if I’m in town, please drop me an email when you get a chance.

Condolence from Daniel R.Malejko on December 5th, 2010 5:45 pm

No one can erase your pain and sadness over the loss of you Dad. But please know we share your grief.
Uncle Nick was the last of a proud generation of Formicas’ to pass, and we owe them a great debt of gratitude.
Uncle Nick and his brothers and sisters gave us so much and will be remembered eternally by us.
Blessings and good fortune to your family
Sincerely, Danny & Stephie Malejko
