Honoring Nate McQueen and supporting his family

A big, bold, bright life. A warrior. A legend.
Nate McQueen Uchida fought his battles long and hard. Now, at last he is at peace.
He was a hero to his family, to his wife who completed his life.
The days with Nate were fun, energetic, loud and beautifully chaotic. There wasn’t a place he wouldn’t travel to, not a person he wouldn’t give his love to.
To know Nate was to adore him and to see how deeply he cared about the people around him. A feeler of all feelings, a genuine soul mingling with the spirits of the world who needed his warmth.
For this young family, the loss of their father and husband is beyond what words can describe.
To his friends; we lost our ‘one in a million’ connection.
Nate would want us to remember him for his crazy outfits, hilarious stories, spunky attitude, badass yoga moves and kind heart.
He had the heart of a lion and a warmth you won’t find anywhere else.
Mental illness is like any other disease except it is invisible and society stigmatizes and discriminates against it. Limited resources makes finding meaningful help nearly impossible. It wears your body down and takes you from the world and swallows you up from the inside out. 
This family needs your help now more than ever to remember their hero and spread awareness about the mental health crisis that plagues more families than you’ll ever know about. Consider donating to help a family just at the beginning of their uphill battle, as they remember a HUGE and irreplaceable life .
