I was so saddened to read of the death of someone so very young. My heart and sincere condolences go out to the Nations family. We've never met, but I was touched as I read the life and story of this young man.  I'm sure he will be deeply and profoundly missed. I have a son the same age and cannot imagine how difficult this must be for you. Please know that our heavenly Father does understand your pain and as "the God of all comfort", He is there for you during your time of need. (1 Cor. 1:3,4) Sincerely
