prayers to his friends and family. He lived beside my Grandpa, I'm related to him but didn't get to meet him or know him. I feel very bad for everyone, I can't imagine what he was going thru, may he rest in peace. The students at NCHS didn't have to attend school today in memorial of him. God bless him and all of his loved ones.

I would like for his friends and family to know that many more families deal with the loss of a loved one in this manner than you can imagine. Take comfort in knowing that your son, brother and friend's pain has been given to the Lord and he will be comforted through the Lord's loving grace. Also, my family has found comfort in support groups that share your grief and disbelief. Find comfort through Psalms. It has helped me deal with cries for help and laments.

Yes, suicide is a sin, one of the many thousands of kinds of sins that humans commit. But that's why we have a Savior, so that our sins may be forgiven. Only God is the Judge.

I do not know the situation, but I totally agree with Go Figure. I think for someone to commit suicide, they have to be in so much pain, they don't realize what they are doing. Young people do not have very good coping skills with disappointment or whatever it was (I don't know, not judging anyone), but he was only a kid! Family hurting bad enough. Lift them up in prayer and with your acts of kindness. Only God knows what young man was really feeling. God Bless and Comfort his family and all his friends. Suicide leaves so many unanswered questions, just be there for these ppl. Breaks my heart. Heard he was a good boy.

People need to get over it when someone breaks up with them. So his girlfriend broke up with him get over it talk to your parents friends, teachers, pastor. Suicide is not the answer. Thoughts and prayers for the family may no one ever have to go thru this.

This whole situation is sad.Boyfriends and girlfriends break-up all the time.And "MAYBE" the emotions from the break-up was hard on him and added to the depression but there had to be deeper issues going on within him.I would not wish this pain on anyone but the ex-girlfriend is NOT to blame. Sadly this was the only way he knew to end his pain but please don't add another death to this situation.Nathen would not want that. This world is a very cruel place and threating to kill this girl and anyone who befriends her is wrong.All the rumors are just that "RUMORS" unless someone was actually there in the room with them no one knows for sure.And she is just a kid,like it or not.We ALL say and do stupid stuff when we are mad/hurt. I am sure Nathen and his family doesn't wish this kind of pain on anyone not even the ex. And if someone actually takes a gun to school or anywhere else and kills this girl or a person that is her friend then they will be adding to the pain of this family and friends and also to their own family and friends. Suicide is a terrible tragedy and I sincerely wish we could turn back the clock and stop every person who commited suicide from going thru with it but we can't so lets try to make something positive happen in Nathens memory... not add another tragedy.Nathen needs to be honored and in his honor stand ,up be a positive person for others who might be going down the same path as Nathen. Watch for others who are being bullied and picked on and step in and help.Keep your eyes open and look for the people who are in bad relationships and do all you can to help them make it better or help them let each other go on good terms. Be on the lookout for people who show signs of being depressed and do what you can for them.Also pay attention for those around you who may have a loved sick or who has passed away and help them grieve and be a positive role model. We all need to realize that how we act in this situation will ultimately effect others and also ourself. So reach thru all the hurt,pain,and anger and ask yourself what Nathen would have you do. I will bet he would tell each of us NOT to go crazy and kill anyone,and for us NOT to blame anyone else for his actions,He would probably even tell each of us to be there for his ex along with being there for his family and try to stop anyone else from commiting suicide.Anyone who knew Nathen would know he would not want anyone else feeling the pain and confusion as he did;he would want you to step up and help them not cause more pain and grief that might lead to someone else taken their own life. Go forward and honor Nathen in all things postive if each person would do one positive thing in Nathens memory to help someone else then this world be be a better place.

I think the real reason they didnt have school is because his brother was making threats to blow the place up or something??

For one it was not closed due to threats I go there and school was still open yesterday for the ppl tht needed a counciler to talk to. Its none of ur guys cuncern on who his girl friend is. She is a grade below me. And Jeff is not going to bring a gun to nchs and start shooting ppl. If he truely wanted Nathans girlfriend. Shot he would have already went to her house and done it he knows were she lives u. Guys need to stop this stupid crap. I do understand tht u guys are protecting ur children and making them stay home trust me my parents did the same thing. Trust me tht school is protected they had city cops county cop and k9 dogs surrounding the hole school. Nathan would not want this so Plz u guys no more talking about how Jeff is going to start shooting ppl at nchs cuz he's not. And u guys can't start blaming Nathans girl friend cuz she just as well as anyone else she had no means for any of this to happen. So jjust drop it all

Who cares? People die every three seconds on this planet. He's gone, no bringing him back and it was his choice. People need to get over themselves. "I was his friend", good for you, nobody cares. Why are you on Topix trying to get sympathy? So pathetic.

Stop patting yourselves on the back like "Yeah, we are all so caring" and talking about how you were his best friend.

You don't care, you are using this to gain sympathy for yourself, which is why you are on Topix writing paragraphs about how he was your buddy.

Kid killed himself, sucks for him and his family. Them threatening anyone for their kid/brother/whatever hanging himself from a tree is a little retarded. It was his choice. HIS.

Tragic accidents happen all of the time? Why is this different? Because it's a suicide. Which doesn't make sense at all.
