In Memory Of David Nicholson
David was an Good Football Player! Great "Hands" catching the ball as a offensive tight end. He also did more than his share of great line blocking. David was better than I was offensively, so we shared the end position, David playing offense, & me on defense. We shared many years in sports together. I was saddened to hear David was killed in Viet Nam while I was stationed at Hunter Laggett, California. Dave all the Komets miss you at get to gathers. Rest in peace my friend!

I miss you David
David, my best friend ever. You are in my thoughts daily. I thank God that I know you as a friend. Thank you for being someone that has stuck in my mind and heart for most of my life. I'm sorry that you had to leave so soon, but someday we will be in heaven together. Sleep well my friend a new day will be starting soon.

I think I was present when this man was hit by friendly fire. I have a picture of David, I think. If someone in his family can get in contact with me to verify that the picture is him, I have a story to tell.
