Hi folks - I have not been doing much lately - some of you know that I lost a son last week in a tragic senseless accident. Thanks so much to those of you who have sent emails.

This is one of the tough ones, but I'm doing fine. Nathan's struggle is over now and in a bittersweet way I'm happy for him.

I went through his computer last week and found the last .doc he typed.

Hello my name is Nathan Willis I am a 32 year old male with 2 years under my belt of being paraplegic. I have recently discovered that I Love life. I love my Family I love my church. I Love my Dad.


After the hell of his accident at work and his becoming paralyzed 2 years ago he had just started being able to see life as worth living.

Thanks for listening folks - I'm going to my hiding place for a while.

Take your time Tommy and do what you've got to do. Words can't express what you must be going through.

God bless you and your family.

Poppa Willis, I don't know you, and you don't know me. Nor do I know what it's like to lose a child; but those moments of my life where it's nearly happened, or I've feared that it might have happened, the terror still lives with me.

I've no words of sympathy to offer you, nothing to make anything better, I don't even have any prayers to give; but my heart breaks for you Poppa, as I know the hearts of the other parents on here do too.

All we can do is listen, and share. It's not much, but it's done with all that we have to give.

Hi Tommy,

Take your time bud. You know I have been and will continue to pray for you and your family. I know this has to be a very, very tough time. Hang in there and we'll see you when we see you.

God Bless...

Tommy,

So sorry my friend. I don't have any fine words to say. I just know that anyone who knows you has been better for the experience. You of all people don't deserve what you've been through but, as always, you will come through to the other side and be back.
Lots of friends here if you ever need them Tommy. Take Care and God Bless.

Hate to hear it, Tommy, but I know with the Lord's help you'll pull through just fine. I lost a daughter a few years back to Cystic Fibrosis. She died two months shy of her twentieth birthday. Wish I had some great wisdom to share, but I don't. It does make you appreciate those that you still have. Love ya, brother.

Hi Poppa Willis:
  Tears of Sorrow goes out from me in Cole Harbour to You and Your Family..

  It's a sad story to post to the n-Track Forum and Board Members.. I am sure We all shoulder your Pain-and-Loss at this time..  

  You know, when you're Called You Go..   We all are travelling along this road..  not knowing what is around the turn..  or..  how long the trip may take us to complete..  or just where or what is at the end of the road..  

                        We Just Do It..

       Bill..
