 This online memorial was created in loving memory of Nathan Ford, whose story is told throughout this website. Please sign Nathan's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember and miss Nathan forever. Nathan would say - "It'll Be Aight" - I wish Nathan would have believed this on April 13, 2007!

Nate, we will be together again, I love and miss you - infinity! Your Mother

The wonder of living is held within the beauty of silence, the glory of sunlight..the sweetness of fresh spring air, the quiet strength of earth, and the love that lies at the very root of all things.



Nathan was a great son! A typical sarcastic sixteen year old that was sure he already knew everything about life. But, he was also a caring, sensitive, beautiful, athletic, and an intellegent teenager who made a FATAL decision that changed his life and many of his loved ones lives forever. He will be dearly missed and loved! Please take a look at the many cherished memories that we have to remember our son, brother, grandson, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend. We will cherish these memories forever!

We love you Nate! Your Family


You keep track of all my sorrows.  You have collected all my tears in your bottle.  You have recorded each one in your book....  This I know:  God is on my side.   

PSALMS 56: 8-9


When Nathan died, he took half my heart with him. My daughter keeps the other half beating and faith that God is going to help me and my family through this. Nathan accomplished many wonderful things while here on this earth. He was an avid fisherman and hunter, a great athlete, and one of the happiest memories I have was when I watched his Grandfather baptize him. The week before Nathan made the FATAL decision to end his life, he and his puppet team from church went to Atlanta - Lads To Leaders - convention and placed first. Nathan and his teammate also placed second in their first debate ever. They worked hard to achieve these awards and we all were so, so proud of them. 

Nathan went through a difficult evening that next Thursday and made an impulsive decision that he couldn't take back. No one is to blame and I know that if he had a second longer and if he knew the hurt his decision has caused, he wouldn't have done this! But it can't be changed and his loved ones are left behind and we will remember him and cherish the wonderful memories we have. I hope others that read this and are going through any rough times, PLEASE don't end your life! Reach out and go TALK to someone. Their love can help you through. At least give them a chance to help you! Thank you!! Always in pain, Nathans Mom - Vivian


Oh, how I just wish I could have helped him that night... I wished he had come talk to me like he did so many times before... Yes, I believe with ALL MY HEART, we would have cried, we would have been tired the next day, BUT he would still be alive!!!!!

Look up to all the stars in the night sky and hear your Father saying,  "I carefully set each one in its place.  Know that I love you more than these."  Hear your Father gently calling you to the place near His heart.


Is anyone crying for help?  God is listening, ready to rescue you.  If your heart is broken, you will find God right there.
