My Dearest Niece Nicole: I posted your loving memorial on facebook just a few moments ago in honor of your amazing Dad. "Dawnielle Murray​ and Brian Jackson​ I just found this memorial to your Uncle Nick, and I am very sad just looking at his handsome face in this picture. Nick was more than a highly decorated Police Officer and the 1976 Policeman of the Year Posthumously, he was generous with his time, and more than kind to family and friends. With his sweet smile and gentle words, Nick could calm mighty storms. I was so proud to be his sister in law, and I have thought of him often throughout the years and miss him to this day. I was very sad over the loss of his wife Linda and young son Nick who both died just a few years after he did. I pray that we will meet again one day in Heaven. Posted in loving memory of Zlatko Nicholi Sintic (Nick) by Judy Gottlieb (Slivick, Jackson, Bridges)" Nicole: My Mother, Father, 3 Brothers, Sister, and I loved your Dad very much. I know that your heart aches for the loss of him, your Mother, and little Brother. May God bless you. Judy
