  1. wonderfully written Joyce, thank you for sharing with us the life of this true American patriot and hero. My wife Bernice talks of him all the time. God Bless you.

  2. Dear Joyce
    I had the opportunity to know the Lesando very well. Nick Sr worked with my previous husband Andy Bogdanski Jr at Union Carbide.
    He always spoke of how proud he was Of Nick Jr.
    I don’t live in the US now I had remarried and moved to Brazil.
    My late husband Gentil Goncalves also passed away.
    He will forever be in my heart also.
    I share your pain and enjoyed hearing your dedication to him

    Thank you for sharing.
    God will bless his soul and you will see him once again in heaven.

    RIP Nick Jr.

  3. First of all, I deeply respect our military. I was there the day you got word. It was my last day at HiTelCo and we were in the break room, you included, celebrating my upcoming marriage to a military man and moving away. When we saw the 2 men in uniform, we automatically knew why they were there. To this day I can still hear the wail of pain. My heart was crushed for you. I’ve never been able to get that out of my head. For many years I always asked my sister (Marge Brush) how you were doing. But always know that someone loved, cared, and prayed for a long time. Thank you for sharing this.
