In Memory of Nate Elliott

“I don’t know why this happened. We lost you a year ago today. The pain and emptiness seems like yesterday.. Waking each morning and going to bed at night. Each day is so painful not seeing you or being able to hold you tight. We miss your smile, your laugh and your sense of humor, you were always lots of fun. You excelled in life, sports and family, set goals and kept reaching, But most of all you excelled as my son.”

Love and Miss You
Mom and Dave, Dad and Tina Grams and Family
