This website is dedicated to my son, Nate and grandson, Dane. The story of Nate's life was one of courage, taking risks and daring to venture beyond the ordinary without concern for what others might think. He taught us about the awesome power of love and challenged us to live deliberately and to be there for others. Nate also showed us that the capacity to love and be loved is never extinguished. Dane, you lost a father. May you find comfort and hope in the stories of your Dad’s life.



Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms thier energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
