Welcome

Love is Always the Answer.

justlovenobs.com is dedicated to the memory of my wife Nicky Bosch. Nicky died in 2017 after being diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. Her battle with this uncurable disease lasted less than 6 months from diagnosis.
Nicky’s beautiful last words to all of her friends and family were simple and bold. Keep Thinking Good Thoughts.
“I was blessed to spend close to 20 years with this beautiful extraordinary woman. Nicky was special, she was truly one of a kind and she made me a better man. I hope to spread her message and help people. Thinking Good Thoughts and sharing with anybody that will listen. ” Jared Bosch

Think Good Thoughts!

In Loving Memory of Nicky Bosch

I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.

Marilyn Monroe

Nicky looked up to Marilyn Monroe. They were the same size and this gave Nicky confidence because she did struggle with her self-esteem. Being what some would call a bigger girl, Nicky loved the way Marilyn proved that it’s all a part of your attitude. 

Genuine Friendships

Nicky made more new friends in the last couple years of her life. These friendships were so very important to her. The families and stories of survival. The feeling of living life and accepting every challenge was a common bond between all of us. No whining or complaining, just staring life right back in the face and saying, bring it on!

I will always be Thinking Good Thoughts, and I will always be Grateful that you ladies were in Nicky’s life.

Anna Dawn and Jo Anne, you really are two of the strongest woman in the world that I know. You have both faced adversities in your life that make you strong.  I hope you will always remember that your power here on earth lies in sharing your strength. Being there for others as examples of faith and self healing. Nicky touched all of us, and she will always be proud of everything you guys stood for.

The world has a chance because of you, and your children, are the exact examples of that hope. I love you guys forever.

Nicky loved the Zodiac and following her horoscope daily. She would often send me texts in the morning with a link to our daily fortunes. I am listing all of them here because the signs fascinate me as well. Some days, our fortunes were more then coincidental, or so it would seem. For the record, I am an Aquarius. Nicky and I were Fire and Ice, that’s all I can really tell ya! What’s your sign?

Nicky loved to Colour. It was her escape from the world. Where she could relax and let her imagination run free.

She was very talanted, her colouring always makes me smile. Her colouring is amazing, she had an incredible sense of colours and the way Nicky shades her work, sometimes the objects leap off the page.

What’s really significant about the colouring to me is, it was another way for Nicky to relate to people.

Not just relate but empower. I mean that. 

Colouring is a form of self expression. In today’s world, even exposing a little bit of who you are can be tough. Nicky encouraged her friends, and they coloured together.

This is probably my most prized colouring of Nicky’s. The Dragon was a sketch that she had picked up and started. It was not finished because she was tired. Nicky had stopped colouring for a while to rest.

I didn’t know that exactly when I saw this Dragon. I just made comment on how cool it was, I told her I couldn’t wait for it to be coloured in.

This was the end result and Nicky gave it to me that night. I love looking at it, and yes it was just one more gesture to remind me of how much my wife loved me. Thanks for the Dragon babe.

She absolutely loved to cook. To make people happy, and food is a gateway for friendship and lvoe for anybody. I use to joke that if I wanted the house clean no matter what, I would just call ahead and tell Nicky that I was bringing company for dinner. Most women enjoy entertaining, Nicky enjoyed taking care of her friends and family all the time. Still amazing me to think about.

Nicky’s talents in the kitchen were all hers. Like most of us, I think she grew up learning how to cook and take care of her family.

Her favourite foods, Chinese! Nicky loved Ginger Beef, for a couple reasons, the taste and the fact it was invented in Calgary! She loved telling people that!

Along with Ginger Beef she loved Yorkshire Pudding. Always a challenge to make those suckers rise…
