Dear Shoemaker family,
Eddie and I are extremely sorry for the loss of Nick. We loved him - couldn't help but love him- and cannot express enough condolences or sympathies for the loss of your first born son. Wow-such a good looking guy he was! When he first came to our house-"courting" Lindsay, he was soo goofy. He was wet I recall, from jumping off the pier at our neighbor's yard, and changed in our "shed", that Isabell had pretty much demolished. I have no idea why he and his friends thought to jump off that pier, I guess for some impressionism to make Lindsay laugh, or something. He was lucky enough to have met my family's Uncle Mike, who named my kids by letters. He and Uncle Mike would spar back and forth with jokes. They are probably having a good laugh together now!. Nick was a part of our family, going to special events and occasions, like when Jeffrey graduated from the fire academy through school. I have watched him from afar these past years, through social media. I was glad and happy to know he was helped along his way, and took delight in seeing his posts as he was making moves to reach his goals. The thought struck me recently, that the best geniuses of this world are taken too soon from us. Like Elvis, Michael Jackson, Prince, and many others. The joy and pleasure those guys brought us are the legacies they leave behind, and Nick is like one of them.
I cannot fathom the pain Lisa, Rob and his siblings, and his grandma are going through. I will pray to God in Heaven to ease your grief and suffering and that a positive can somehow be found in this tragedy.
Sincerely, Carol and Eddie Grierson

My deepest sympathy to Lisa, Rob, Matt, and Lauren Shoemaker. Nick was a wonderful person and achieved what he was meant to do in his life here on earth by making people feel special (It didn't matter who they were). Using his talent by singing, acting and so many other things. I loved him dearly.. He will be missed - Angie Cossentino
