Judy and Bob, I remember Nathan as a patient where I worked in Roanoke. I do recall his big smile. As a friend of his grandmother, Lucille, I would hear of him often. I am so sorry for your loss. In case you don’t remember me, I am Judy Oney Brewer. I am from the same part of the state as Lucille. Our families knew each other in Castlewood. And here in Roanoke, Lucille and I were in the same church. I miss her very much.
Im sorry to hear of Nathan passing. I remember when i saw him.
I knew Nathan when he was a young child and was honored to be one of his patterners. I am saddened for Judy and Bob and his family, but grateful for his forty years. Has been over thirty years since I knew him, and have never forgotten him or his folks. I remember his beautiful smile and dancing eyes. I am grateful he is at peace and whole. With sympathy and remembrance, Pat Davidson
Judy, you might not remember me but I worked with Nathan in the ACE program. I also had a disabled daughter, Tracy. I lost her almost 7 years ago, she was 40 years old too. I know exactly how you feel and you have my deepest sympathy. Nathan was a great guy, always laughing and smiling. He will be surely missed. Dawn McRoy
My thoughts and prayers are with your family in your sorrow. May God console you with happy memories. Annette Schell
