Nathaniel was brilliant, creative and kindhearted.

He had kidney stones. In 2011-2012 he had kidney stones, his gall bladder removed, got hir by a car when he was on his bicycle and had his wisdom teeth removed. He became addicted to pain medication while following the prescription recommedations. He continued to get kidney stones. He was released from the hopspital one week before he died, with no medically-managed withdraw plan.


What Made Them Smile?

Comedy shows brought out the heartiest laugh for Nathaniel. He smiled at people, food and the small things I would pick up for him. He smiled at me his entire life.


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

His unconditional love, his kind treatment of others and his beautiful brown eyes. His voice and calm demeanor. His hearty laugh.


If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?

I adore you. I loved you before you wrer born and I will love you with every breath in my body. I'm so sorry I couldn't save you. I'm sorry others didn't treat you better.
