Julie I am so sorry you had to lose your soulmate this early in life. I remember the last time I saw you guys together at the Hilltop truck stop and Matt got to meet you both. I remember Nathan's smile & him laughing. I'm so in awe of your strength & dedication to Nathan these last several years with his disease progressing and in such a very hard season of your lives. God be with you and fly high Nathan.
Sending my love,
Pam Freeman

Julie I am so so sorry for your loss. Your were so dedicated to Nate. I'll never forget when I first worked with him how all of a sudden he took off running down the hall and I thought what the heck lol. Then you told me he loved football and that's why he would run, then it made since. I remember how he lit up every time you came in and that big smile on his face, that was priceless, and when he would take off walking you would walk right beside him, 3 steps forward 2 steps back and I asked if he was teaching you some dance moves, and the stories like how he taught Abby how to shoot snot rockets lol. We will always remember Nate and will be praying for you and your family. All of South Hall loved taking care of Nate and we all know how much you loved him, again I'm so sorry.

Julie I'm sure you can remember when I would be feeding another Resident and my buddy Nate would walk up and try to take my water pitcher and then with that handsome grin look at me and smile and say gotcha

I'm really going to miss him
even though he had his issues he still recognize who I was and who his family was and I think that's why he picked on me
