I am so very sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the memories you hold in your heart and in this promise from our loving Heavenly Father at Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore..."

My deepest sympathies to Nat's family. Nat was one of the kindest, dearest souls I ever met and he will be sorely missed. His work in genealogy was a great example of his perseverance and patience. May his sweet light always shine in the hearts of all who knew him.

Nat was with us at a very enthusiastic Fall Fellowship Meeting of the Old Colony Association recently. Surely goodness and mercy followed him all the days of his life and he will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

I am so sorry for your family's loss. I did not know Nathaniel for long, but he has made an impression on me that will last a very long time! I will miss that smiling face and the short visiting we got to have once a wemoonek. May he rest in peace, once again reunited with his love.
