    Mical,but tell me, did you sail across the sun?
    Did you make it to the Milky Way? May you find peace at last.

    It is so sad my family never knew Mical. If they really knew him and his heart.. I’m SURE they would write kind words to him. Son,You will always be my purpose and reason for living. No one knew how well you were doing now compared to past. One day away from a new life and it was taken from you. I will never understand why!?? Just know son, mama loves you more than life and always will. You are sunshine, my ONLY sunshine. My heart, my soul, my everything. I won’t be far behind u, I made a promise to NEVER leave u all alone. Say hi to PaPa and keep an eye on me and your cuz til I get there. Eternally and forever…

      Thank u patsy, for your compassion and remembering my baby….i’m kept in the dark when it comes to family. Im sorry raymond was called home. He was a part of my heart and soul and upbringing. He taught me how to drive my first stick shift. His Volkswagen. He said well u can’t do too much damage on a dirt road. God love him….. I am so sorry I couldn’t be there for you.. I hope u are holding up better than I am…and thank u for babysitting my precious son when he was a baby…. He would want me to thank u for showing some love. That’s all he wanted was to be loved and accepted….God bless u

    I wasn’t there to say goodbye
    To reminisce of times gone by.
    I wasn’t there to make you smile,
    To tell old stories, laugh awhile.
    I wasn’t there to talk of fun,
    The happy times of life’s long run.
    I wasn’t there to share the years,
    Those times of happiness and tears.
    I wasn’t there to hear your fear
    Of leaving those you held so dear.
    I wasn’t there to feel your pain,
    You knew we’d never meet again.
    I wasn’t there to hold your hand
    When you parted from this land.
    I wasn’t there to share our love
    Before you joined the stars above.
    I wasn’t there, I shed a tear,
    In my heart you’re always there.

    I’m so sorry, Mical. I only wanted what was best for us both, and I wasn’t helping anything or anyone by staying.
    I’ve never stopped loving or caring about you, and your passing hurts to the core. I’m so proud you were in the process of getting help. You deserved better than everything that had happened, and no matter what ANYONE says, YOU MATTERED.
    I love you.

    Mical, How i remember meeting this sweet little boy with an adoring Momma and daddy back in the Cocoa Beach days, in the apt on the river-the apt with the spotted fur couch! Funny-the little things we remember.
    You were so adorable! I was able to watch you grow for those first several years, becoming a caring, kind and polite young boy. I do remember your Mom reminding you to use your manors, (being from MN we never had to say miss, unless it was your teacher, or ma’am and sir, but things are different down South, at least back in those days)! Stacy came along and we’d come by to visit; you were always so sweet to her. The years passed by, we all lost touch but every now and then Stacy would be trying to look you up to see how you were.
    I will always cherish the memories I have of you Mical. May you be that special angel that watches over your Mom and all the special people that have been left behind. RIP Mical

    Mical Man, there were no weeds growing in your garden honey, I have known you and your mama since you were a very young man, and you just couldn’t wait to grow up. You embraced life with such excitement and expectation, wearing your mama and daddy out trying to keep up with you. But babe they loved you with all their hearts and gave you the best they had, this is not how they envisioned it was supposed to be, children are not supposed to go on and be with the Lord before their parents. But to their surprise, God has called you home now, so you will be out of pain and be there to hold the door, when it is their time to come along… We loved you Mical and prayed dearly for you all these years, please pray to our Father God for us now, and look out for us, because how well you know… just how hard life really is.
    Blessed Be! Mical Emmett Nathan…

    Mical I was truly blessed on knowing you. You had such intelligence and such interesting conversations we had. I also knew how hard you were working to change your life. Your mom loved you so much. You was and ever will be everything to her. Rest in peace.

  • PATRICIA LARUE Posted August 6, 2021 5:25 PM

    My precious son. .oh how you are missed. Every breath I took in this life was for you. Now I can’t seem to exhale…your heart was so big and loving. You always gave what u had to an unfortunate person on the side of the road with a homeless sign.. remembering your kindness, I gave my last $5 yesterday to a little old man at and exit. I told him it was from you and what someone did to you. Tears came to his eyes. Baby, you were loved by many, I wish you had felt loved and not died alone. God knows what was in your heart and I know he was there waiting for you. I just wish I had gone first. or with you..You have peace now, you here me. I will always be your “pit bull”..I can’t stop crying to get anything done. You were my sunshine, my heart, and my soul…Ask God to make me stronger. You weren’t suppose to go before me. It hurts… I know u looked down and smiled when I gave that man some help. I hope I made u proud.. Oh God, put your arms around us both.

    My heart hurts…

  • Mom Posted August 20, 2021 8:26 PM

    Baby my pain will never go away. 1 month ago u left me to be where people aren’t cruel and evil and
    where God doesn’t allow horrible people to get by with ANYTHING…I know u will find enuf love to make this cold world disappear. I love you eternally son. I will see you soon ….

  • Mical Nathan Posted September 24, 2021 1:44 PM

    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free…I’m following the path God laid for me…I took his hand when I heard him call,. I turned my back and left it all….I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play…Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that peace at the close of the day… If my parting has left a void, then fill it now with remembered joy… A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, all these things I too shall miss…Be not burdened with sorrow; ….I wish for you, the sunshine of tomorrow…. My life has been full, I’ve savored much. Good friends, good times,, a loved ones touch… Perhaps my time seemed all too brief … Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me….GOD wanted me now… He set me FREE.

    My precious, I miss u . 2day is your birthday. beautiful pictures and memories and my heart wants to say so many things to u, that I never said enuf. beautiful poems for u, but am too crushed to write them down. U deserved so much, we all failed u. I’m so sorry . Please forgive us all and ask Jesus to let u send me some strength to do the things I have to do. I need u baby. No one knows how close we really were. But u know, and that’s all that counts. I’m sorry your closest friend and family let u down. They will have to answer to God. I know how loyal and how much love u gave to everyone. You never liked me calling u “Precious” but all who really knew your heart knows that is exactly the person u are. I miss you my angel. Keep an eye out on me baby. I still need u and love u my angel .I can’t wait to be with you. And I promise some justice will be done in God’s name, I and always…u are my only sunshine….happy birthday my sweet baby
