Nathan Joseph Raulerson, age 28 of Viera, Florida, passed away on August 8, 2019. Born in Brandon, Florida on March 6, 1991, Nathan was preceded in death by his Pop-Pop, Frank Frulio and his Grandmother, Mary “Ma Kelly” Raulerson (“Love, sweet love”).

Nathan is survived by his mother, “Mama Dukes” Theresa Raulerson (Frank Wisler); father, J.R.

He is also survived by his dear cousins Erin Houston, Britney Frulio, Anthony Frulio, Ryan Stebbins and Cameron Stebbins.

Nathan was a beautiful young man, engaging and fun to be around, smart and funny. He had his best moments and memories and was most happy when spending time with his family. He most loved three women in his life – his Mama Dukes, his Grandmother, and his Aunt Lisa. He was engaging and polite, warm and affectionate to all those he came into contact with. His family and all who knew him will miss him and cherish his memory forever.

Theresa, I have no words my friend. I just want you to know that I am praying for you and asking God to give you strength. I will always remember my trips to TX and seeing Nathan as a young boy who always wore his cowboy boots no matter how hot it was! You were an amazing Mom. We know that to be absent from the body is to be present with God. Nathan is now with our God. I pray you find comfort in knowing that Nathan is now at peace.

Dear Nathan,
You left us at such a young age. I have two special memories of you. The first time, Fran and I happen to be walking on a sidewalk close to Grandma Gerry's house. You were pushing a bicycle with your right arm only. I did not know that our meeting was the beginning of a healing friendship for both of us.

I had a stroke and you were growing up in 2014. Both of us were adjusting to our new lives. Your letters of sweet concern and simple writing of your daily routine gave me hope and purpose. I prayed for you and cherished each letter you sent.

In March of 2019, we meet once again at your Grandmothers. Nathan you smiled at me and called me the Truth Rabbit. Your smile that day still is in my heart.

Thank you for your kindness and understanding. Thank you for giving me hope. Your Pop Pop now has your kind spirit to keep him company.

Your Truth Rabbit,

Mark Majcher

We are at a loss for words and our hearts are heavy. He will be missed and know that there's a hole in the lives of everyone he touched. We hope you will find comfort knowing our thoughts are with you and that you will be at peace knowing there is one more angel in heaven. He's no longer fighting the demons that created challenges for him and he's finally at peace.

We love you always, are here for you and know that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Dear Theresa,
Knowing the agony and heartache you are going through breaks our hearts too. We can only imagine your loss. We know you felt the struggles Nathan went through, for you shared many of those with him.
Theresa, you were the best and most loving mother any one could hope for. Your honesty, loyalty, devotion and love for Nathan could not be surpassed by anyone.
We can’t help but feel as much as Nathan loved you, he too would be heartbroken to see what effect his passing has had on you, and if given another chance, we know he would have fought harder (if that was even possible) not to put you through the heartache and pain you are now going through.
We feel Nathan only wished to prove himself to you, for he truly wanted you to be proud of him. God knows he tried to overcome the problems he faced on a daily base, but unfortunately these proved too difficult for him. He was unable to beat it, and sadly yours and everyone’s hopes for him were cut short.
Theresa, Nathan is safe now, he has a new home with our Lord. He is at peace.
I know this will be hard to imagine, but as time passes, God will ease your pain and you will be able to think back again and enjoy your happiest memories of Nathan. Today and each day going forward, please remember the good times, his wonderful smile and playful personality! Remember and cherish the good times and the positives, for Nathan would have wanted you to remember him this way.
We know you, know your strength and your love of God will carry you though this.
We love you dear friend,
Doug and Dolly
