This might not mean much but Nathan was one of my best friends throughout elementary and it's truly devastating to think of this happening. I enjoyed playing soccer with him and remember those good times . I wish all of my condolences to his family and hope they make it through this tragedy. - JJ

So many memories of watching our boys together on the soccer field, developing their talents playing the game they loved so much and couldn't get enough of! No matter the uniform, it was an incredible joy for them to share the game; and our families bonded both on and off the soccer field. We were blessed to know Nathan and he will be missed. Love and Prayers to your family.

As a parent who has also lost a beloved son I empathize with your feelings of grief and the incredulity you feel every day when you awaken and realize he’s gone.

I neither know you nor did I know Nathan but I do know your sorrow and I especially appreciate your courageous decision to reveal the cause of Nathan’s death. Although my son died of cancer, it is as important to recognize the equivalent necessity to address mental health as well as physical health, and, by doing so, de-stigmatize mental health issues.

Your revelation of Nathan’s cause of death is another step toward a more straightforward thoughtful discussion of the need for more open conversations about mental health as well as for more mental health professionals.

You have undoubtedly helped others though I realize it is small consolation at this time.

My husband and I thank you and grieve your loss with you.

Our family would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone who knew and loved Nathan. Although we did not know him personally, our son played Xbox with him online for almost 4 years and he hearing his laugh and conversations with our son, it was almost like knowing him. Our son will miss him online. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Nathan played basketball with us in 8th grade at creekside. I can definitely say that all of us on the team loved him and he was a big part of the team that year. He brought great energy and made us all laugh with constant jokes and sarcastic remarks. Nathan was a blessing to all and he will be greatly missed.

Wilson family, I am one of the Pastors at North Holland Reformed Church. Many of our high school students go to Zeeland West, and in the past week of connecting with them, I have learned what a wonderful person and friend Nathan was! Though I didn't know Nathan personally, I wanted to share that he made a positive impact on the students I work with, and he is deeply missed by them. We at North Holland are praying for your family as you process such a painful loss.
