Heaven One

Nate Barbour

This posting was sent with an extremely heavy heart. Blue Knights L.E.M.C Maryland Chapter 1 has lost an incredible Blue Knights Brother of the utmost and highest order.

Our beloved Nate Barbour, accompanied by his brother in the knighthood and dear friend Henry Seppi, made it to the 2015 Pigs On The Beach. 

Brother Seppi advised this writer that Nate insisted on attending with the ongoing health concerns and discomforts withstanding.

I was touched in a most profound manner to have spoken with Nate, shake his hand embracing in those special hugs only Nate could give. Nate's gentle bearing and memory will always occupy a prominent place in my heart.

Ride with Pride our beloved Knight in Heaven One. 

I will not say goodbye, simply said I will meet you along the road of Heaven One. Please keep a watch for me !

Signed Brother Robert L. Freeman
