  4. my condolences to the family & friends. My brother went to school with Nick & played football with him

  5. Ott Family;

    Our son Tyler Tischer is in the Marines and was Nick's roommate in Hawaii and is in Afghanistan as well. They were great friends and Tyler is taking Nick's death very very hard. He wants to call you and talk to you about Nick and is trying to get your phone number from his C.O. His heart is broken. He thought the world of Nick and tells us he was a hero! Nick was going to stop by Minnesota and see us when he drove his jeep home from CA. Tyler is doing the same job in Afghanistan as Nick did. We are so very sorry for your loss! We feel like we knew Nick from everything that Tyler has told us about him. Our hearts ache for all of you.

    Sincerely regretful....

    Wally and Roxanne Tischer

  6. Dear Debbie and Family,

    My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Your son is a hero and an angel, May you find comfort in knowing that.

    Our grandson Lcpl Kevin Cox Jr. was in his company and he is taking this extremely hard. He is a hero to him and his fellow marines who said he would put himself on the line first. He will never be forgotten. God Bless You and bring you comfort.
