    I think I speak on behalf of the rest of the "Old Comet Drive" gang that we are all shocked and saddened by Nathan's passing. I will always remember Nathan standing out in the backyard watching me pick up after the dog and yelling out "you missed one!" or observing the rest of the older kids trying to act cooler than we really were. I had not seen him since my father sold the house 13 years ago, but I know I will always remember his perpetual enthusiasm. I never saw him without a smile.

    We so enjoyed and appreciated his help putting our hay up!! What I enjoyed most were the opportunities to share the love of Jesus with him during those times! Godspeed Nathan! Rest In Peace!
