Nick was a lover of nature and enjoyed the mountains and hiking.

Playful time for Angela Marie and son Nick Rucker

He was murdered in Kentucky and, unfortunately, it has been an uphill battle to gain justice for him.

To build awareness of the fentanyl crisis, Angela Marie created The Never Alone Nick Rucker Foundation, Inc. Please visit to learn more.

A few heartwarming happenings that occurred was Angela Marie and I had scheduled our conversation weeks in advance only to find out that May 3rd (the day we recorded) was Nick’s birthday and I never knew it.

Add to the fact that her fb profile name is Angela Marie, my stepdaughter’s exact name and middle name – Angela Marie Wong.

And during the conversation, Angela tells me that while away on business in Virginia, she spotted a Virginia license plate “MomNick” and how special is that!

There are signs from our angels all the time!
