Its late. 12:29am. Another evening in a long line of evenings prepping for another day. Tonight its different. I’m thinking of my friend…my original brother among friends. Nathan Bowden. He passed away about 5 years ago. I’ve tried to write something about his life and what he meant to me. It can’t be summed up in a few words on a blog read by many. He was a beautiful thoughtful person … he had a very difficult life. We spoke at least 4 times pr week…he would listen when his health was failing without letting on. His faith was strong … waiting on a miracle that never came. Nathan died of Lupus. I was with him in the hospital many times over the last few weeks of his life. I was fortunate that I had a chance to speak with him when he was coherent…. I let on that this wasn’t too much for me and I would do what I could … I would be ok as he would. I let him know that he was great friend and I loved him. I’m thinking of him tonight…. his birthday was in July.
