Nate is a loss to our world. We lost our beloved Nate on March 1, 2021. A lifetime too soon. To say that he was amazing is an understatement. He could do anything and would help anyone! His love for all people and his inner desire to help all the time stands out as Nate’s defining quality. To mention his name invariably leads to stories of how brilliant and effective Nate was in everything he did. Like the crack of thunder that splits a stormy sky, hearts broke suddenly and devastated us all who knew and loved Nate. It is never about the date of birth or the date of one’s passing but all about the dash between and though Nate’s was tragically short his impact on the lives of others was extraordinary in every way. Nate was his mama‘s little sidekick, her little bundle of joy. Never have even the poets of old or the great sagas of literature ever described a more inviolable bond than the bond Nate had to his mama, Jessica, or Jessica‘s bond to Nate. She could not have done more or loved him more and neither could Nate have loved or adored her more. Mother and son, a bond unbreakable even by one’s death. Truer words were never applied to Nate and his mama. Not less can be said for the love that Nate had for his big brother Kalob or for his sisters, Christine, Renee and Jessica. Nor for his father, John Travers or his stepdad, Tracy Swena. Nate loved his entire family more than can ever be put into words here. Nate love to regale anyone who would listen to the stories of Trav, Papa his siblings and mama. No family could’ve ever have experienced a deeper loss. To know Nat was to love Nate, to admire him! Words seem like such small and insignificant things to try and express the soaring heights of our love for Nate and they fall woefully short of ever expressing the internal depths of our loss. Nate, your smile, laugh, and spirit will forever be etched into the walls of our hearts. Oh how we will rejoice to see you again. We will spend our life celebrating yours... We hear you in the retort of a marksman’s shot, smell you in the chefs finest dish, and see you in the expert hands of the mechanic. In every practical joke and all the laughter your memory finds fertile soil. We will miss you Nathan Travers, but this is not goodbye, for we know we will see you again in our Father’s house. We carry your heart in our hearts. We love you so very much.

Since you have passed , you are and always will be in my heart each and every day. From this day until my last day . You are an inspiration to all who knew you and to me ! You had such amazing qualities, too many to list . I do remember you at only 6 yrs old , and you insisted on helping me put in a garden , well after working all day long , unlike most kids your age you never asked for anything , your reward was being able to help as was your way at 6 yrs old and for the rest of your life . You were always there for your family , and anyone in need . I’ll always be proud of the person you were , And as the family went you always were there for all of your family. The love you had for your mother was also unparalleled!! And for your brother and sister s and all your family . Now that you have passed. , I’m sure your at peace. And I know there will never be a day that pass s that I’m not thinking about you ! I love and miss you son. But I know your with us now and forever , Rest In Peace my son

Nathan, how you will be missed...
I can think of a lot of things that I could share, like how JJ went into labor with you while babysitting me, or how we played hide-and-seek as kids, or how you made the best & randomest food combinations...
But what I remember most is how much you truly loved your family and animals, and how they loved you back—and that love will last forever.
March 10, 2021
I'm sad to say that I did not know you as you grew into an adult. I do remember baby sitting you as little baby with your big ol chubby cheeks, cute little smile and round big head. I hope you have found the peace you were needing. JJ- I know there is no comfort at a time like this for your loss. You are not alone. We are here for you, we love you, we support you and we know what you are going through. All I can say is remember the good times even when it hurts. Love and prayers for you all.

Honestly, I don’t know what to say. What I do know is that when people pass away they stay in the hearts of the people that love them forever and Nathan will forever be in many peoples hearts.

Nathan, my brother you’re missed so much! I still can’t find the words. I thought of you today, but that is nothing new,I thought of you yesterday and will tomorrow too. In memory of a special brother so full of loving deeds who always filled our hearts with laughter and joy, someone who loved to bring a smile as he went on his way and never failed to brighten up a dark and gloomy day, someone who’ll never know how much he’s missed and thought about, for when he left it seemed as if the stars had all gone out. Brother you meant so very much in every single way and you’re remembered with much love today and every other day until we meet again in my heart you’ll be.

Nate, What can I say? I have cried more in the past week than in the past decade. I keep thinking of the nights you and I sat alone talking until the early morning hours. We talked about your mama your brother Kalob, papa and Trav. We shared so many stories. But we also talked about your future and our family. We had plans. I cannot fathom the pain you are in to have made this decision, but I know that it must have been unbearable. All of our lives we will remember you and how extaordinary you were. Your intelligence was staggering. You had a working knowledge of everything. I admired so much that you could cook like a chef, fix anything and build things that only a genius mind could.
I saw something during our last visit, a fleeting look that passed between us. It lasted only a moment but I knew in that moment you and I were connected. You loved how I love your mama. You told me how grateful you were that your mama was as happy as you could ever remember.
Nate, I had so much to learn from you, we had so much to share together and I am heart broken we wont have that in this life. Rest easy, Nate, knowing that I am the rock that will forever hold your mama in the safety and love you wanted for her. And while you hover above her, I will stand beside her in all of her times of need. I love you little buddy and I will miss you and our talks.
Be at peace.
I am and will remain in loving memory of you.
Your Stepdad, Tracy

Nate, PART THREE
I know how troubled your mind was. How much you were going through. Yet through It all you always loved and worried about me. Your poor mind, body and soul just needed a break. You just wanted some peace and rest. Unfortunately our system, this world and some people failed you tragically. It is so unfair, so sad and so devastating. I know baby boy. I know. It’s ok. Mama understands and I hope you carry that with you too and finally get the rest and peace now that you have so needed. You will never be forgotten. I will continue to fight and be strong on your behalf. No one could ever love someone as much as I love you. You will be deeply missed beyond belief. I love you so much baby boy, to the moon and back. May you be at peace now my son. Til we meet again.
Love Always & Forever,

Nate, PART TWO
You had the greatest mind and were so far beyond intelligent. You never ceased to amaze me. There wasn’t anything in this world you couldn’t do or wouldn’t do for anyone and everyone. Your truly one of a kind. You took care of your Mama like no other. The love and bond you, Kalob and I shared was like no other in this world. No one compared and no one could ever take that from us. You were my little side kick. Always by my side, went everywhere with me, helping me, protecting me and loving me. There is no stronger bond then the one we have kiddo. I love you with all of my heart and soul. Nate everything about you was incredible. You made me be a better person and made my life a better place to live. I could go on for years about all the love and memories we shared. This is so hard to write all of this down but to know you is to love you. Though your time on this life was short, the impact you made on others will last for eternity. I will always cherish and remember all of our time together, all of our memories, the love and bond we created. I remember every little thing. Always Always. Not even death can break the bond between us. You were always my Pride and Joy. I wouldn’t trade one moment or memory of you for anything in this entire world. You were always worried about making me proud and being the kid I wanted you to be. Baby boy, you made me prouder then anything in this world. You were always just who you were suppose to be. I am so proud of you. No Mama could ever be prouder then I am of you. You knew that so carry that with you always. I carry your heart in my heart. As you took a piece of mine with you. You will eternally be a part of me. I shall see this world through your eyes now, knowing that you are always with me, watching over me, protecting me, loving me and giving me the strength and courage I need to continue.....continued

Oh my dearest son, my sweet sweet baby boy. From the first moment I felt your tiny body move in my tummy my entire world changed in an instance. I knew right then you were something special and unique beyond anyone’s deepest imagination. A KINDRED SOUL to say the least. You popped into this world with the speed of a mustang, the courage of a tiger and the heart of a lion. You had no fear! You had nothing but courage, strength, heart, soul, pride and a unconditional love for everything and everyone. You weren’t an average soul! You had an OLD SOUL! You were like no other. You didn’t sit around cooped up inside playing video games and such. You lived life to the very fullest. You loved hard and you took so much joy in helping others. You loved being outside, working on things, building things, fishing, the mountains, going on long drives and helping others. Ya remember the drive I let you take me on to the top of pikes peak? Ya that took 10 years off my life that day let me tell ya. Let’s not forget your obsessiveness with the vacuum cleaner. No one could turn a vacuum on in a 100 mile radius without you running over and taking It out of their hands. You made breakfast for your brother Kalob every day before school then whipped up a snack for ya guys after school. You always helped me make dinner, come up with new recipes and ideas. Soon you were making me gourmet dinners all by yourself to surprise me when I’d come home from work. I loved cooking with you. I loved eating your cooking. You could cook like no other and I am going to miss that so much. I’m going to miss so many things about you. I haven’t had to do yard work, feed or water the dogs since you were 6 years old. Heck I don’t think any of our neighbors had to do yard work anymore either. You always took care of everyone. I haven’t had to pay for an oil change or mechanical work on my cars since you were 8 years old. You did all of that for me.... continued

Oh Nathan, I was with your mama when she brought you into this world. You learned to walk by pulling yourself up on our dog Shyla. I have so many memories of you when you were young. We lost touch for some time, but recently, we got to talk a couple times. I loved it when your mom would sneak pics of you and send them to me lol. I loved seeing you cook. I was hoping you could get into culinary school. I know you struggled kid. But I know you were still that sweet little boy we all loved so dearly. You left a deep hole. Noone knows that more than your mom and Kalob. I will pray that now as your troubles are gone that you send healing to your mom, brother, family and friends. You are so loved Nate. And you will be so missed. I hope you have peace and a healed heart and soul. I really did love you, always Aunt Susie.
