I’ll have some helmet stickers at Ashtabula for anyone who wants one to show their support for the family. They’re free to anyone who wants one.” According to Larry Martin II.

Shannon Smith and Daniel Coltrane , it was a joy to know Nick. We are praying for God to be very near to you and your family. Love to you all.”
Brandy Herman said, “My eyes are absolutely swollen shut from crying. Life is not FAIR!!!!! I can’t find a single pic where these kids are not thick as thieves, on a boat, on the beach at Long Beach Pier, or just hugging out of sheer LOVE and it makes me wonder why God takes such precious lives… such happy smily lives . It’s not for me to question, I know that. But that doesn’t make it hurt any less . I hope you are standing there with Mary and
Uncle Joe with that huge grin on your face right now Nickolas Coltrane- you had some pretty good angels waiting to welcome you for sure . God if I have ever prayed for anything I pray that you comfort his parents, super cool brother, and everyone that loved lil Nick. This is unbearable.”
