Nathan, you were my hero and role model growing up. Thank you for your example and for being the best brother anyone could ask for. Your example and advise were the reasons I chose to follow the calling of law enforcement. I appreciate you always looking out for me. These past several months have been brutal without you. I think about you every day and miss you terribly, more than words can express. You were a shining example to your fellow officers. I've had many approach me and tell me how you affected their outlook on the job, and their attitude towards going the extra mile in serving the people they come in contact with. I've had miraculous encounters with total strangers who have shared amazing stories about how you came to their rescue in a time of distress. You always managed to cast a big shadow while you lived, and have left an even bigger one in your absence. Rest in peace, big brother, until we all meet again on the other side, through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. I love you.
