I first "met" Nate, when he emailed me to find out how to set up his blog in 2006.
We conversed through emails and finally met up in person at Poke Stop.
I recently got an email from Dennis, another blog friend, saying he had emailed Nate, but hadn't received a reply.
Maybe he was busy at work? Taking a break from blogging?
Then, I checked his FB (Facebook) wall...he had passed away.
I was shocked, I just saw him over the summer, he didn't seem sick.
I am thankful for his friendship, and am gonna miss his kindness and generosity.
He's influenced some of the food I've made on this blog...here, here, here and here and here.
We've also had some foodie adventures..here, here, here, here, here and here.
Take care Nate, you will be missed!
