  • Sorry to hear abt your lossI’m sure her momma was waiting with open arms may they rest in peace….. Condolences

  • I give all my prayers and love to Nathan & those 2 beautiful babies (Maddison & Jordan).
    The last couple of days I’ve reflected on the memories that we had. High school, then I found out that Nathan & you was together and when we saw each other at Katie’s house we talked forever, just catching up, like we just picked up where we left off. The way you talked about Nathan, I knew you was happy in life.

    If I could tell you anything right now this is what it would be. As well I hope it brings peace and comfort to those who are hurting. I know how hard it can be.

    You’ve shocked a lot of people the other day,
    People who was simply not ready.
    But you are at peace, a peace that only comes once in a life time.
    You loved people, who loved you back.
    Now it’s time to show you a different kind of love,
    time to cherish each moment that we had.
    A time to celebrate the time you lived, the jokes we all shared, & the impact you had on many people.
    It’s time for you to Rest easy my friend!
    The memories we have will last forever in our minds & in our hearts!

    I will never forget. Rest in peace Lindsay!

  • Lindsay came to our house with Nathan a dozen times and each time we had wonderful conversations. I always felt Nathan and Lindsay were two of the nicest people you would ever want to meet, and such a perfect match. My heart literally broke for Nathan and the kids when I got the news Friday morning. I am so sorry, Nathan that you have to suffer this loss, I know what a big heart you have and how broken it must feel. I have prayed non-stop for you and the kids every moment since I got the news. I love you SO MUCH!

  • Lindsay…..what a beautiful person you were, both inside and out. The world lost a great friend, mother, daughter and citizen. You were always cheerful and made others laugh even when you didn’t always feel the greatest. You will always be missed, but never forgotten. R.I.P.
