  7. I was a co-worker of nathans at Shady Valley,every sunday morning we would talk about that week before or jst things we had done in our lives our conversations could jump to family memories to what or who did what at work.I liked his serious nature about his job and his perfection at the sautee station which was located by my section of the room.He had the most perfect white teeth and smile.We always laughed and it made sundays more enjoyable at work.I saw his true intelligence and for some he was strange for that but I saw a true genuine person.

  8. Dear Family, I saw a notice of Nathan’s passing in our mutual college newsletter. I write to relay that it was very courageous to mention Nathan’s illness, you showed exceptional honesty. Having endured this disease with my own loved ones, I understand what everyone was going through. I know that your comments will provide understanding and encouragement to similarly-situated afflicted folks and their families.
    God’s blessings to you.

  9. I went to college with Nathan at Hampden-Sydney and we lived in the same dorm at East House. I would see him almost everyday and he would always bring a calming sense in a house full of 18 year olds. Most of us being away from home for the first time. Over the years, we have all gone our separate ways but I will always remember the bonds he, and we all share. RIP Nathan.
