  1. Please accept my sincere condolences for your recent loss. My heart goes out to you and your family. I have always received comfort from the Bibles’ word at Philippians 4:7 which reads “and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus”.
    I hope you can receive comfort from these words as well. Margo Simmons

  2. I would like to send mt deepest sympathy and prayers to the family..Nathan was a very dear friend of mine. I came to know him when he first joined the band the Jet Poets. We would later share moments together on stage, he as the lead guitarist and I as the tambourine player. We had many laughs and ill never forget his warm smile and loving ❤…He wasnt just a friend, but I considered him like family. He will forever be missed…

  3. We extend our hearts to each of you at this time. May HIS comfort, strength, and peace lead you beside quiet waters.

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

  4. So sorry to hear of the passing of Nathan. We were able to know him well at his job here in Brenham. If he wasn’t waiting our table, he always made a point to come over and speak with us. He was a very nice young man who will be missed by many customers here in Brenham.
