Monica, I never personally met your Nate, but I must say I feel like I knew him. Just from the talks we have had in the past about our children. His passing has really impacted lots of people from what I can see, including myself. He must have been a WONDERFUL young man. May your child rest in peace. God bless you all always.❤
