 So sorry to hear of Nick's passing.  I have many fond memories of Nick and the other Fourlas brothers when we were next door neighbors years ago on North West Street.  May he rest in peace and may your memories bring you comfort at this difficult time.

We will hold dear to our hearts all of the bowling tournaments and picnics in Gettysburg.  Jen we know that it will be tough for a while but watching Nick struggle was also tough and now he is in heaven free of pain.  We know he will watch out for you. If we can do anything we are only a phone call away.

To the Foulass brothers, we go back to the days of the "Hole in the Wall" on Factory Street. I share your loss of your youngest brother, and to his family who are mourning the loss of their father, and to Beth, Nick is not in pain any longer. Know that I share your loss, and will always remember Nick's great laugh and his ability to mess with anyone he came into contact with...............

Randy Roebuck, chs/70

John and Jim,
I am so sad and sorry for your loss. Nick was special and I will truly miss him; he was a bright point in my day when I had the chance to talk and joke with him when he delivered my mail. My sincerest condolences to you and your families.

Vicki Porto

I was blessed to know the Fourlas family.  For five years I lived next door to them on N. West St. Some of my best memories are of that neighborhood.  After many many years Nick showed up at my door to deliver some mail.  When he saw the name he made it a point to drive up to the house just to say hi.  We had some good laughs and good conversation.  We have lost one of the good guys.  May he rest in peace and may his family find comfort in God's love. Chip and I miss him.
