    Dear Pat, Mike and Barbara Nat was very, very special to us and our children. I cherish each and every memory that we were priviliged to share during my tenure at OSLC. So many good things happened in our lives while in Johnson City and Nat was associated with most of them–in partnership with me, by leading the way, or by his gentle behind the scenes support. During a long ministry, one is privileged to share life with many thousands of persons and they all touch your life in some way–but few, if any, have touched me and my ministry as much as Nat King. Thanks be to God for Nat King. May you all find peace, rest, hope and blessed assurance in the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ and his promiesed everlasting life to all who believe in him. Our prayers are with you. s/Gary

    Dear Pat, My wife Sherrill and I were saddened to learn of Nat’s passing. We’re glad we were privileged to visit with you, Nat, and your family at his brother Don’s funeral, and we are very sorry that we cannot attend Nat’s service. I will always treasure the visit I had with Nat when I was a little boy during which he explained how jet engines work. I have always had the greatest admiration for his service in the Air Force, as did my parents Hermann and Brownie. We wish you and your family the best during this time of sorrow. Sincerely, Carl King
