I don’t know how long I’ll sleep with Nate’s prayer card tucked under my pillow, or wrapping myself in his blankets while lying in his bed, but I do know this, the loss of a child is the most devastating experience a parent can face and missing Nate will never go away. The age of a child at the time of death does not lessen the hurt or devastation. It feels completely unnatural for a child to die before his or her parents. It violates the natural order of things. It brings rage at the unfairness of it all, it was not fair for our child to lose his potential and fail to see his dreams fulfilled, or for us as parent’s to never see him achieve future dreams. Nathan quickly matured and grew to be an amazing young man, more so in the last sixteen months. He went from being a little boy that got into trouble in the neighborhood while riding his toys, or fighting and wrestling with the local boys, to giving advice and steering others from trouble. When your child is suddenly faced with fighting for his life, (which he did so graciously) the things that seemed so over whelming at times quickly become petty. So you see through all the pain, sleepless nights, loss of appetite, feeling completely miserable, Nate continued to fight every single day. Not once did he ever give up hope. Many times he kept us in the dark by putting on a smile to hide the pain to protect our hearts and save us from worry. One of the last things that Nate said to me was “why us”? In my quick response I said “no Nate why you”? His comment was another example of how he put others before himself. I suppose it’s a normal thing to ask why? There is never an answer that is acceptable. We always hear the old saying, “there is a reason for everything”. It’s a pretty crappy exchange in doing so to lose a son. We as parents are the teacher. We hope to do the best we can at guiding then and loving them through life’s journey. Even though his life was cut short, he truly lived everyday like it was his last. Nathan knew he was loved by so many. He made us proud to call him our son and brother. There are no words to describe our pain of losing Nate; it’s a place of constant tears whether they are seen or not. It is with us all the time and will never get better. This is our life now, whatever the future holds, whatever we do, we will stay strong, (Nate strong) and we will take Nathan with us where ever we go and with whatever we do. .He will forever be in our hearts.
