Nate was a great help to me when he was at Gayle and Rogers. he helped carry food into the house after I went shopping. When I had a pet dog called Ralphie, Nate rescued him for me .It was dark and Ralphie was going blind a loud truck scared him and he ran away.My health has been bad and I could not get him to come home. Deseria found him Ralphie and called Nate, and Nate came carry him home. I will never forget when Nate was about 3or4 yrs old. here comes over to visit. He had a cowboy Hat ,cowboy boots, and he said he was going to be a cowboy , when he grow up. Nate. R.I.P. as you ride the open trails. Family I am so sorry for loss and heart ache. you are in my prayers. PEACE TO ALL!!!!!!!!Brenda
