    I remember meeting Nate for the 1st time when he was 2 months old. His brother Al was so proud. Told me, with his little hand stretched out towards Nate, “This is my baby brother.” My heart is breaking for my life long friends, his beautiful parents Sally and Kevin. Prayers 🙏🏼for peace, strength and courage for Sal, Kev and all of the Letendre family and friends. We may never understand, but we have comfort in knowing Nate is in Heaven🕊 above with Ray and Momma Maureen. I love 💜 this family as my very own. Even though the miles have separated us, we still will always be there for each other, in good times….bad times….happy times…..sad times. Blessings and hugs from Marcia 💜

    I’ve seen a great many wonderful things, at the top of that list would be sledding in the old neighborhood and seeing Nate sled till his sled broke then he just slid on his belly till well after dark helping the smaller kids back up the hill each time. Love to the Letendre Family from the O’Connell family.
