Condolence from Steve Causey on August 12th, 2020 4:41 pm

I am saddened to learn of your son’s passing. I saw from the comments of others that he served in the
military.
In this day and age, to have served his country in this manner speaks volumes about the son you raised.
The adage about parents not out living their children comes to mind. I can only imagine the pain you are experiencing.
Nancy and I send to you and your wife our condolences. We know one day you will be with him again.
We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Steve and Nancy Causey

Condolence from Nathan’s older sister Erika McKethan & husband Charles on August 17th, 2020 5:29 pm

Miss you my little brother that grew up so tall. I remember the day I met you at the hospital when you were born. You were supposed to outlive me. I’m thankful for the time I had with you. See you in the big sky. We’re all so sad without you.
