Nathan is my son… been a rough 5 months since his death. Not sure anyone will ever see this post. The day I received a phone call from Nathan’s mom I was at work on break eating my lunch. I tried to convince myself this isn’t real… there’s a mistake… pretty much speechless. His mom in tears trying to explain to me the details of his death… I sat in silence… when she finished explaining… I could hear her silent tears… my break room went dead silent. It was like the entire room disappeared. I only remember asking her are you sure he’s dead… ? We made plans for a video chat for last rights… later that evening. And hung up … I looked up at everyone in the break room and quietly said my son died early this morning on his way to work… room went quiet again… and then I said quietly I need to finish up my day here… and make plans to return to Ohio for the funeral. I went back to work…knowing in my heart there was nothing I could do to change the results… that had taken place earlier in the day. All the effort looming in my head from the beginning… every thing his mom and I went through to get him here… from the first words and steps he took on his own … memories swarmed my mind… to the little things in life like pulling out of a car seat with a rock clinched in his little hand… I had tears swell up in my eyes as I went about finishing out my work day… and I couldn’t help but think it the rolls were reversed he’d of done the same and finished out his day at work… my son Nathan was unique in his own way. One of a kind in the eyes of his dad… and he’s been a happy spot in my heart…hard to believe he’s not a living memory making memories showing heart and loving life and the people he shared it with… I will always charish his memory and miss his presence in this life and look forward to the next life and journey with him eternally… may God bless all who shared in his life and felt the same lost as I did when he met a unexpected death… sincerely Gregory Gamble
