Nathan was one of my favorite folks at Central Presbyterian. He kept everything neat, clean, spruced up and looking good. He helped me a lot and he and I enjoyed digging daffodil bulbs out of the lawn before he had to cut the grass. What a wonderful man and a tribute to our armed forces. Elouisa Stokes
