  5. I’ve known Nate since elementary school and this hurts my heart so much!!! I remember us girls fighting over him and seeing who could kiss him first. I remember him and a few others over to my parents house and playing spin the bottle when my mom rolled up and all the boys’ bikes were in the back and I told them to sneak out the front door. We were totally busted. As we grew up, we weren’t as close as we were when we were young but I’ll never forget Nate or all those great times we had just being kids. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss and am praying for all of you. I can’t believe this has happened but truly cherish the fact I was able to know such a great person. He will forever be missed.

  12. I am so sorry for your loss. It breaks our hearts when death separates us from the ones we love so much, especially when they are as young as Nate. The Bible reminds us that God sees our pain and sadness and has promised that soon, “death will be swallowed up forever.” (Isaiah 25:8) He will heal our broken hearts by resurrecting our precious loved ones to life again. (John 6:40) I hope the beautiful memories of Nate and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.
