Happy 16th birthday to Nathaniel in Heaven............3/16/08

On Nathaniel's Angel Day 1/28/08--Our boy with the golden heart

A million times we'll miss you,
a million times we'll cry.
If loving could have saved you,
you never would have died.
In life we love you dearly,
In death we love you too.
In our hearts there is an empty place,
no one could fill but you.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you never went alone.
for part of us went with you,
when God took you home.
His garden must be pretty,
he only wants the best.
He put his loving arms around you
and said: "My child, come home to rest".

I have downloaded some pics of Nathan's "Catch the Balloons" celebration of his 15th birthday, March 16, 2007.  See his photo album and also his timeline. There is a short little video of the balloons flying up to Nathaniel in the "Audio & Video" part of this website.  So many of us cared for him and loved him and miss him more than words can say.

Thank you to each of you who have prayed, loved us, sent special thoughts, cards, gifts, food, lit a candle or celebrated his life with us.

Each candle you light or message you send on this website means so much to Nathan's family.  God bless each of you for continuing to remember him.


To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die."

Death Leaves A Heartache No One Can Heal,
Love Leaves A Memory No One Can Steal.

With his big heart, Nathaniel loved all animals.  He was always wanting to rescue any animal in need.  And now a bird has built a birdnest in the flowers on his headstone.  How fitting. He would have loved that.
