    Natalie was the sweetest, most artistically talented girl in the class of 1990. She had a beautiful soul and I will never forget how she surprised me by buying my doughnuts at Willies Bakery and lunch at Estes Deli. She was the best at “random acts of kindness”! Hugs and prayers to the family

She was one of the most kind individuals you could ever hope to meet and she was a true friend no matter what. Prayers to the family. Goodbye sweet friend. Rest in peace…..

    I am sorry to hear of this loss. I take great relief in knowing Natalie no longer suffers but recognize your great sadness at having to say goodbye. Natalie always found the spotlight despite never seeking it. Her smile was infectious and her presence always brought light. These were amazing attributes for a spirit that often sought to stay at the edges, under the radar, and behind the scenes. But that was not to be. Everyone who encountered Natalie will never forget her because she embodied love and acceptance. She was a proud, devoted mother who beamed when talking about her son, and a fun-loving friend who saw the good in everyone she met. I am incredibly grateful to have known Natalie since childhood and will for the rest of my life have been positively affected by her presence. This world is a little darker with the passing of this great light.
