"Nate - To the person who always had a smile on his face and a song in his heart.  There are not many people in this world that have the ability to profoundly impact the hearts of others and touch their souls forever.  You were definitely one of those people Nate.  I will always remember what a kind, gentle, soul you were.  I know that you are singing your heart out for the Angels above."

"I knew your brother is his healthy days. He was handsome, gregarious, and could sing, dance, and play basketball with the best. He got lost, could not be helped, but remained in the arms of those in the community that new him for over 30 years. Wherever he has gone, it is warm and loving..what Nate deserves from his end on this cold earth. RIP old friend."

"I don't have any specific memories. I do remember that Nate, when I saw him at least, was always kind and gentle. Most of the people I know always knew of him, but never really knew him. I spoke to him on several occasions, prayed with him, and even shared a couple of meals with him. Most people only saw his addictions. I saw him, and he was beautiful. R.I.P. Nate."

"My dearest brother (Nate) passed away from this life at 8:43 am. As he reached for my hands and we held hands I told him you don't have to fight anymore, at one point I said, "Nate you be strong even though he laid there weakened and pain. I managed to give him water to drink, he was so persistent holding that cup to drink. JUST AS PERSISTENT!!! As you all remembered him."
