    Just learned of Nat's passing. We live on through our families and the memoirs of the lives we touch. I have nothing but good memoirs of the time we shared working together. My Dad always held Nat in high regard. He will be missed. Howard Davis, Jr

    Gloria I am so sorry for you loss. Nat and I were is the same classes at Kenbridge Elementary School. I have fond memories of riding my bike out to the Matthew farm and play with Nat and Jimmy and working in tobacco with them. My father in law Howard Davis thought the world of Nat and I enjoyed catching up with Nat when I visited a job site. He was a quite gentle person who will be missed. Prayers for yoy and the family.
