Lih-Tah,

I knew Nick, though I was not aware of his athletic accomplishments. 
What I do know is that he was a lovely person. I always looked forward 
to our encounters.

I am greatly saddened at the loss and send my thoughts out to his family.

He will be remembered and missed.

Regards,
Rick

When I learned about his English Channel crossing, the incredulous look on my face caused him to smile and modestly say "The skinny ones usually don't make it."
