This put tears in my eyes and I didnt even know this young man. Prayers to his parents and family and friends. It wasn't that long ago that Livermore mourned my dear cousin Madison and now Nathan. Two different stories but the same tragic ending. Rip Nathan.

To the entire family: I did not know your son but can see from the writing that you raised and loved a precious gift and the world is a better place for the time he was here. Thank you for the organ gifting. Your son will leave on in many ways. Through the future years as the pain will continue, try to find comfort in his memories, his impacts on others. I am very sorry for your loss.
