I was looking forward to messaging you a Happy Birthday Nathan. Happy Heavenly Birthday!!
I'm sure you and Jamie will celebrate the best birthday ever!
As for your family. Sending my love and prayers for your comfort.
Jamie's Mom Laura Smith
Nathan, you had such a pure soul. No matter the time or distance, you were my best friend. You always wanted what was best for me, and you didn’t sugar coat anything. I appreciated that so much.
You literally shaped me as a human, through the toughest years of my life.
I remember all the laughs we had, and how we would just add on to what each other said to make it funnier. Talking on the phone for hours, until it literally died. Sleeping on the phone together because we just enjoyed each other’s presence.
You let me borrow your CDs and I would listen to them on repeat in my room, everyday. It sounds dumb but it helped me get through so much.
And Charmed, how you, Brooke, and I would watch it all the time. Those were some of the best days of my life. We shared the same taste in everything. Music, TV, video games, all of it. You left such an impact on me. You will truly be missed. I love you more than you’ll ever know. Channa Lipski
Nathan, you are and will always be my best friend in the entire world. No matter the distance or time, we always had love for each other and great memories. You were my safe space and the only person who shared my humor. No matter the distance, from the outer realm, the unknown, you will always be my best friend. I love you. You were an amazing person.

I'm so very sorry for the family's loss. Kim Sierra
I’m so very sorry for the loss of such a beautiful young man. Condolences to the entire family, deepest of our heart felt sympathies. May the memories of his beautiful soul help each and everyone of you heal your hearts.
Love, Aunt Jeanne and Uncle Bob Aunt Jeanne
There's so many good memories I have with Nate. From him introducing me to my favorite band NeverShoutNever, riding quads around my parents yard, watching scary movies, staying up until the sun came up talking about anything and everything, he was always there to listen. We didn't talk much over the last few years, but whenever we did see each other it was like we never stopped talking. Even when my uncle and his mom got divorced, we always said we'd be cousins no matter what. Krista
Dear Nate, every time I saw you we talked about creative things like, hair color, tattoos, or even video games we both have played. Things we shared in common. But out of all the things you loved, you also brought so much kindness and the ability to let others be themselves around you. I always loved how you just went with the flow when we would all hang out as a family, and when I saw you light up one day over some fancy salad I was prepping for dinner… it made me smile because it just showed how thoughtful and observant you were and I felt like right then… even though it was a simple moment/memory, that I knew you longer than just a few years.
I also know that Joe Carr was another Father to you, and me being an only child growing up I always wanted a brother… even though I’m an old lady and you’re still a youngin, you seemed to have such an old soul and it felt like it was meant to be!
Love you, love your Mom, sister and family. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life and I will miss you and do my best to comfort those you loved and take care of them, just as they took care of my Dad and spent so many loving years with him.
My heart goes out to you and your family. I’m praying and I’ve started doing prayers more now because I just really want to understand this loss.
To Jessie, Brooke, & Joyce… if you need anything I will do my best to be there for you & I'm so sorry for your loss and am praying for the whole family every day.
