Over the last 47 years Ann & I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Nick. Over the past 20 years Nick has been a blessing to us with our motorcoach groups using The Upper Bay Museum: A master at working with people, caring for people and being sensitive to the needs of others. Nick will be greatly missed by a lot of people, but fondly remembered by all. Thanks, Nick...for all that you have done: It meant a lot.

Dear Mrs. Demond, Grant and Demond Family, Please except my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather. I didn't know Mr. Demond well however, my Wayne always spoke fondly of Mr. Demond. I am sure that Grant and Wayne were the reason for the graying hair....I've been told many a story about those teenage years of the two together. Hold in your hearts the many memories you have shared. For the heart never forgets one that it has loved. Take Care
