Patsy, Rusty and James I am so sorry for your loss. Nathan was a fine man and a great neighbor. I loved having ya'll next door to me. You all will be in my prayers.

I am sorry for your loss. Revelation 21:3,4 gives us comfort in knowing we have a better future ahead of us where all of our pain, suffering and loss will be a thing of the past and we will see Nathan again.
I will pray for the family
