    Joke “knock knock. Whose there. I would always say Joe. Nathan would say Joe who. I would say Joe Mama. We always had fun with that. May he forever rest In peace and know he was
    Loved by many


  2. Nate was a one of a kind kid. He was always the big brother i never had, always giving me the advice i needed. More importantly he was a Son to a loving mother and his loving late father. I remember the day me and Nate started getting close, constant nights up for hours upon hours on face time laughing away and having an amazing time. Nate was one of my closest and dearest friends if not he was my best friend. We didn’t need to talk everyday, because we could pick up on conversation like we never left off he was always so cool like that. Nate was a larger than life person with a heart of gold and it hurts me so much to hear hes gone i can’t imagine how the family feels. My condolences to the entire family.

  5. I so enjoyed having Nathan in class. He had such a gentle spirit and may it now be shining down from Heaven upon us all. I know we will never understand why he is gone, but that is where our faith comes in and so, until we meet again, may you always know what a special person you were and how special your soul continues to be. Please watch over your family and friends from Heaven. May the Lord bless and comfort them all.


  6. My condolences to your family. I still remember Nathan as a perky 5 year old when I taught Kindergarten across the hall. What I remember best about Nathan is that he always asked the question why and wanted to learn how things worked. He had a kind soul. Rest in Peace Nathan.
