“I’m Not Afraid of Death”

Dying 27 year-old father leaves behind special message for baby daughter.

27 yr old Nick Magnotti recently died from a rare form of cancer of the appendix and left a special video message behind for his 11 month old baby daughter. It's a story of hope, a testimony of faith and a witness of love that should be told…

“I’m not afraid of death” he says contentedly to the camera. “I know why: it’s because God has given me this peace and this blessing.”

“The relationship that’s developed, the amount that I’ve gotten to know God” he says behind tears “I just feel so blessed to be able to be up in the middle of the night in pain and talk to God and be inspired to try and help people.”

“I’m just talking to God about how I know that even if I’m not here that He’s her Father.”
