Dearest Susan & Family,

We are heart broken to hear of Nate's passing. I was blessed to get to see him in Augusta just a few weeks ago and he was riding his 4-wheeler! What a tough guy! I'm sure this is very difficult for all of you. Please know that our thoughts are with you and I am praying for you to have strength and comfort during this very sad time.

With Love & Blessings,

Ron & Rhonda

Hey, Susan, Mark, Tony and Robert, I was surprised to here about Nate. I always enjoyed having a cup of coffee with him in Kenck's shop. He was fun-loving fellow. One of the people I looked forward to seeing when I came home to Augusta. If there's mountains in Heaven, that's where to find him. Your family are in my prayers.
