Our Remembrance
My dear, dear, Nathan.

Your death has left many people with such a tremendous heartache. I am so, so sorry for the obvious despair you lived daily.

Nathan, I think you would be very proud and humbled by the outpouring of love and support for us (and consequently you!) immediately after you died. Family and friends have been incredibly kind, honey. Nathan, you are loved by many people.

It still is very hard to believe you have died. I look at photos of you and I think how incredible that I literally gave you life. I've held your warm hand. I've held your warm face between my hands. Your smile and bright eyes lit up a room. Life got too hard for you and you knew no other way to escape the pain.

Dad and I miss you, as do your siblings. It's been hard honey, but we are slowly learning to live and be happy again. Some days are better than others. We thank you for the little ways in which you continue to let us know you are around us.

You remain in our hearts and always in our thoughts. You made a difference, honey.

I love you.
I miss you.
I'm proud of you.
