So many years have passed, I doubt you remember me, Caleb Douglas, I taught across the street from your store. Maybe Jaron remembers us riding bikes together or Daniel remembers the night of Dungeons and Dragons . I remember a wonderful and caring family. I just came across this while trying to add Nate to my friends list on face book. Had I known I would have given my respects sooner. Please forgive me. Caleb ???

Dear Arlene, Danny, Jaron and families. I just found out about Nate by accident and was completely shocked at the news. Nate and Arlene were such a big part of our life for many years. My heart is breaking for you Arlene as I know Nate was your rock. I have so many, many good memories of the good times we shared and the tough times ya'll helped us through. Your hearts were bigger than Texas and you touched so many lives in a wonderful positive way. Nate, you were the best friend Tom had and he loved you dearly. Much love and many prayers for your family as I know they miss your great wit and big smile!

I saw Mr. Berman and his companion in Boyd, at the Auction House, Saturday afternoon. They were so enjoying their ride. I am a stranger, truly in passing with a few words spoken, but my heart breaks for your loss and the pain of his riding companion.
