“In anticipation of this, I would have Chris make noticed each day about our encounters. So we would catch the excursion and attempt to recall what all occurred,” Chis Nikic’s father, Nik Nikic, 60, of Maitland, Florida, told TODAY. “It is likewise us recording what we did and afterward talking about it and placing it into something that would be moving for others like Chris, different guardians like us.
