His infectious smile, laugh and sweet innocence will be missed greatly.  He touched many lives with his special gifts.  Nathan enjoyed riding the yellow school bus, watching sports, eating pizza and spending time with all of his family.

Each life has a purpose; Nathan taught others the importance of giving their best. His smile, love of food, and eyes that signaled serious thought are such soothing memories during this time when the world needs encouragement. As a substitute paraprofessional in Nathan’s class, I witnessed his enthusiasm in moments of laughter and in his quick running feet when curiosity compelled him to explore. Thank you, Nathan for making a difference; your time was short, but your imprint on the lives of your family, friends, and teachers will last forever. May God bless your family at this difficult time, and may their memories of you soothe their hearts.
