Leslie and Keith and family,

When Wes shared the news with me about Nathan, it stopped me in my tracks. My heart goes out to you all along with my greatest sympathy. Although I never had the pleasure of meeting him, I have no doubt he was a great person if he was anything at all like his parents, and I'm certain that he was.

May God bless you all -- please feel free to reach out to me if you need anything at all.
