Well, Nate finally had enough suffering, and went home to be with the Lord. Thank you all for the prayers and support, they were much appreciated.
Nathaniel Lee Choate was born July 8th 1980. He had a cleft lip/cleft palate, but had many other handicaps to deal with as well.
He spent the 1st nine months of his life in Neonatal ICU, having many major surgeries. At about 7 months age, we were taken in a room, and explained to that he might not live through his next operation.
So, although he is gone now, we had 27 more years of a positive fun-loving boy who grew up slower than most kids. He was a very good big brother to our younger boys Ben and Dillon. With his handicaps and learning disabilities, he stayed young at heart his whole life.
Yes, I'm very sad he's gone.
But he touched my life in a wonderful way, and I am glad I got to spend 27 more years with him than I thought I ever would get to.
God blessed Nate in a special way, and I'm a better human being for having been around him.

Sorry Fellowdad, I look foward to having Nate showing all of us how to fish the big pond upstairs. The Lord has many houses and Nates will always be better than mine. God Bless, take care of the rest of your God given gifts.

David,

I'm so sorry for your family's loss. I'm glad you were able to have 27 years with Nate as I'm sure he taught you a lot about life which has spilled over to how you interact with all of us!! Please know you and your family are in my prayers.

As always your friend.

David,

I was priviledged to meet both you and Nate on the same trip. Somehow just saying "sorry" or "condolances" just doesn't seem to cover it for me right now. So instead I'll just say:

It was great to have met you Nate! Lord willing, I'll see you later.


FISH HARD!

Damn. I'm so sorry. I don't know what to say. Damn. I cannot begin to imagine the depth of your pain. Losing a child is the worst thing a parent can experience.

I am sorry for your loss today,. You are right, He is with our Father and Jesus...while he may have suffered here, inside,...he will not be forgotten by our Father, ...and because you believe, he will be remembered, and brought back as a perfect human being..."1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

He is always with you, He will comfort you, you have such a kind, wonderful attitude..and rest assured, that your angel is home now...God Bless through Jesus
