ForeverMissed
So many wonderful memories of you growing up. You were so special to me Nate. “My Little Man”. I’m so proud of what you accomplished in your short 30 years. You’ve left a huge hole in our family. Life will never be the same without you here. Please know that we miss you so so much. Mom & Taylor

I can't shake the feeling that I need to write this to you. In my thoughts I talk to you whenever I pass our old favorite hangouts, go to the dirt bike track or out at the shooting range we used to go to. You are a precious friend to me and I still know exactly where the hole is in my heart since you've joined the angels. We used to talk for hours about our own paths, dreams, our careers, a strong friendship that I miss terribly. You were always so supportive of my singing career...I remember when you were my body guard at my first big concert. When i changed into my law enforcement career, You constantly reminded me that I was unique and capable. Never less than a gentleman. The laughs by the campfire on my property, going to the desert and the live music we used to go to are some of the best memories that I can vividly remember. I miss you. I know that you're at peace. But it's so hard to not miss you. My daughter is 17 now, the age we were when we met. I pray that she meets a man like you who is a true friend and treats her like a lady without asking anything in return. I love the friendship we grew. You'll always be remembered. I hope you and your k-9 are living it up with the angels. Until we meet again... thank you for being you.

Such a sad day. We miss you Nate. You should be here, there’s still times I can’t believe you’re gone. I can still here your funny laugh, 15 years, but it feels like yesterday. Missing my “ little man”. ~ Love Mom, Taylor and Rhylin ❤️

It’s your angel birthday ~ ..my sweet boy has been gone 14 years. So unfair! You should be here. Watching your little sister fish off of the kayak, and now watching Rhylin growing up here in Oregon. We miss you terribly Nate.

Crossed my mind with a sip of our favorite whiskey. You are forever missed and always an inspiration. God Bless and rest until we all meet on the other side.

Nate may be gone but memories of him are forever! I think of him often and still miss him. So many things trigger thoughts of him - hearing a laugh like his, seeing bright yellow cars, World Series baseball games, tacos, etc. if nothing else, Nate lived his short life to the fullest. He was an awesome man!

I was just thinking about Nate today. He was a good friend. We were in the Navy together.
