I will miss this gentle giant of a man, and the fierce manner in which he fought to make sure his voice wasn't silenced when he saw the morality underlying the issue we were discussing. May God bless and lift you, Tippetts family, for allowing this gifted soul to emerge and for sharing him with those of us who had the privilege of knowing him. -- Jeff Fowles

To the Tippetts family: Hello it has been a long time since we saw your family, but we have wonderful memories of living on Colorado Dr. and our son, Mike, being friends with Nathan. Back then, when the guys were little tikes, Mike met Nathan and came home and told us of his new, great, friend: Nado. We were happy to hear this news and interested to meet Nado. When we did meet him it was wonderful to know him - what a nice boy was Nado (and we found out his real name but he remained Nado to us).
Mike and Nado played together often. Nado had a really neat (the cutest) cowboy outfit. Nado's mom surprised our Mike by making (sewing) a similar cowboy outfit for Mike. It was so special of her to do that - Mike really enjoyed wearing it atop his clothes just like Nado did. The two guys played cowboys together. Oh, what fun!
Always, the Tippetts family were so great to Mike and our family.
The news of Nado's passing is so sad for all of us. Altho we have not seen Nathan in many years we remember him and your family fondly. All of us are saddened of this news. We will always remember those happy memories.

We feel privileged to have known Nathan since he was a little boy. We will all miss his gentle kind manner but know he is at peace and free from his pain he endured in the last few months. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May you find peace and comfort that he received the best of care and love from you Don and Harriett. Love from the Hall family.
