    Wow!!! This is not easy for me to finds words to speak of my dear friend. Our bond was deeper than words could describe. He was a supportive friend through good and bad times. He was in my wedding, we traveled together many times. He spent much time with my family on a regular basis. We often would be the last ones to leave the Meadows together, or dice games, and then end up at Kings at all ends of the night. I could go on and on. This is a good man, that carried a good heart and did things with pride and passion. My feelings for Nate will stay with me and my memories of our GOOD TIMES together.
    Love and Memories will always be there, my friend.
    As Nate would say “ My Man Boz”
