If you haven't been to Nathan's website before, be sure to click on "past journal entries
The Fargo paper did an article on Nathan on Sunday, Jan 20, here's the link to read that

Here's the link to Nathan's story - then on the tan bar to the right, at the bottom are two more things about him - one is an article about Batten's, they got in touch with Nathan's neuro in St Paul, and then an article about his website

Please sign the guestbook, even if you've been to the site before, and even if you've signed the guestbook before. It helps me to know Nathan is not being forgotten.

I know, I didn't update on the angel date this year. Sometimes it is so hard to know what to write. Nathan has now been gone 5 years, how is it possible that that cute little face has been gone for as many years as we had him with us? Most of the time by now, I do ok, but there are still those unexpected times when the tears well up, and I think "why" and realize there is still a hole in my life, my heart, and our family without him.

It's especially hitting me tonight, as I read the caringbridge site of the daughter of a friend of mine, who is fighting for her life in Meritcare. She has a smiliar situation to Nathan, but not the same diagnosis.

I am overwhelmed when I look at the guestbook from Nathan's angel date and all the people who still remember that date and check in with us. It really means a lot to me.
