I consider myself lucky to have so meny wonderful memories exploring the innocence of youth with Nat. He will always be special to me. Rest in Peace!
Although I only knew Nat for a very brief period, and only in a limited capacity, I consider myself lucky to have spent some time in his company and gotten to know him a little bit. As a Den leader, he was patient and giving with his scouts. As an adult leader, he was ready to help and, more importantly, ready with a joke of lighthearted comment to keep everyone's spirits up. The entire Cub Scout Pack 673 family are saddened by his loss and hope that Nat is resting in peace.
Nat was my uncle. Nat was that uncle who hung around the kids a lot and was really a kid at heart. I knew uncle Nat ever since i was born because he came to the hospital where i was born. His son Austin my cousin had great dad who loved him so. Nat was a well known friend, family. And his family loves him very much and we miss him but we all know he is in piece talking to grandma G.g Faye.
Trust in your hearts what you feel to be right and truthful as this is the pathway to Love. And if you cannot find a way, keep looking. Don't quit until the miracle happens. Just keep showing up, it's half the battle. Nat lived these values that our Father taught us when we were young growing up in Mercer Island, Wa. My brother's one of a kind character lives forever in my heart and memory. His death reminds me daily how important it is for us all to find humility by extending love, generosity, and friendship to the folks we meet in our days, as we never know the internal strife one may be battling. We miss you Nat and won't forget your exemplary and adventurous life you lived. Love, Your Brother,
