In Memory of: Nathan 11/09/1995-01/20/2014 High School Senior & 18 Forever(Click on the link to view 11 photos in memory of Nate) He had a heart of gold, a clever and creative mind, a passion for sports, music, and dance.  Also intellectually blessed with a spirit stronger then imaginable, and surrounded by love … now his life is a memory and love remains strong.  He touched more lives in his short life then many do over an entire lifetime.

Thank you to all  Riverton, Wyoming community for supporting this beautiful Peck Family in their darkest days and the ongoing support for Nate’s three siblings, mother and step-father.  You must all be proud to say you live in Riverton, Wyoming where community comes together in a time of need.

My heart goes out to my sister (Diann-Grandmother) and brother-in-law (Russ-Grandfather) as they continue to find strength while rebuilding shattered lives.  May they be blessed with many more happy memories and years ahead.

Rest In Peace Nate.
