Default Our son, Nathan 9/6/83-3/16/16

I know our son was a member of this forum. He would talk to his mother and me, for hours, about Corvettes and F-Body cars. March 16th will mark the one-year date of his death. My first thread I posted, today, was asking for advice on purchasing or leasing a C7? My wife and I are doing this as a tribute to our precious son. Thank you to whomever thought of adding this place to express our joy in his life and our grief of his loss.

I wish you the best as you remember your wonderful son. If you are purchasing a c7 corvette as a tribute I suggest a forum dealer.

Best wishes and god bless

I'm sorry for your loss, but like I try to do regarding the loss of my Mother - I do my best to celebrate her life and all the wonderful things she accomplished.

Seems like you have a tribute figured out, I'm sure your son would have loved it.

Sounds like Nathan had the same passion for Corvette's and F-bodies that my late brother had. It's great that he lived his life, however short it was, with passion and enthusiasm.

I am sorry for you loss. I think he would be honored that you are taking up what he loved.

Michael

In this country and many others, the young lead us to think new things and do things we never thought to do. May that be only a small part of the legacy of your son. Enjoy a new Corvette for itself and your new-found knowledge as given to you by your son.
