    I can not thank you enough for the sweet words you have written here. Nathan just had a big heart and a love for so many many people. I thank you for all the kind words that have been spoken. I wanted to update you that he did NOT die from drowning. But I do not have any othere details at this moment. There was another young man in the canyon who was found and who has not been identified so please be praying for that family. But thank you for all the kind words and just know that he loved all of you very much.
