 NASHVILLE, TN
*****One more update. All of you have shown such immeasurable love and support to Nathan and Eilee. My initial goal for this page was $40,000, and we raised ten times that. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. Feel free to give any more if you'd like, but I'm not going to raise the goal anymore. Nathan is blown away. He's humbled and grateful. He and Eilee are the sweetest little family. Meg would want me to tell you all to become organ donors. My wife and I signed up yesterday. She would also want me to tell you about her hope in Jesus, both in her life on earth and her new life now.

Meg, we miss you. We'll see you soon. 

----

****Posting another update.  This page has been live for less than 24 hours.  You all have raised a quarter of a million dollars.  I can't quit crying.  Nathan and Eilee, we love you.  Meg, we miss you.  I'm raising the goal again.  We're sending this girl to college.

My name is Josh Wilson, and I have the privilege of knowing Nathan Johnson.  He plays guitar in my band.  Nathan loves life.  He loves people.  He loved his wife, Meg.  He talks about her every day.  Half of his posts online are about his "boo," his "goddess," his "beauty."  

Yesterday, Megan went Home to be with Jesus.  At about 2:40am, she gave birth to the beautiful miracle who is "Eilee Kate."  The delivery was beautiful and smooth.  Nathan and Megan got to be together with Eilee for about 6 hours.  Megan held, fed, and burped little Eilee.  Nathan says they couldn't sleep because they were too excited.  They talked all night and morning.

About 9 or 10am, Meg started having trouble.  By 11am, she was Home.

Needless to say, Nathan is devastated.  There are no words for this, so I won't really say much more.  Here is what I know.  Nathan is a wonderful man and an amazing father.  He loves his daughter dearly.  

How can you help?  You can give time, meals, and money.  Let's give so much more than we think we can.  Believe me, Nate needs it more than us right now.  

Let's raise enough money for Nathan to get off the road for at least 6 months.  Let's cover his bills and meals so he doesn't have to think about any of that.  Let's sleep over at his house and feed sweet Eilee so Nate can rest.

Please consider giving money, meals, prayer, or your own sleep so we can show Nate and Eilee how much we love them.

Thank you all.  We are Team Johnson.

*
 This campaign has gotten so much love and support that I went ahead and upped the goal.  Guys, this is amazing.  THANK YOU for all of your support.  Love you Nate and Eilee.

** Upped the goal AGAIN.  You guys are amazing.

***Third time to up the goal.  Breathtaking.  Can't stop crying.  Thank you all for the outpouring of love for our dear friend.

Friends, what started as a $40,000 goal has just grown exponentially. You are all so kind. This is family. This is exactly how it should be. Eilee is going to college. Nathan is taken care of while he figures out what's next.

Thank you. Can't quit crying.

I lost my wife last November one day after giving birth to our third child. I have a 5 yo, 3 yo, and 7 month old . My wife passed from something abbreviated as DIC . If he ever needs to talk , please send me a Fab message. I know first hand what he is about to endure. Perhaps I can help like others helped me.

Our heartfelt sympathies to Megan's family. We were Facebook friends and kept in contact because of Myocarditis...Megan received her new heart the day our son Brad died from Myocarditis. She never failed to send a message on Brad's birthday or angel day. She will be welcomed with open arms by Brad and all the other Myo angels...she will be in good company. Megan, give Brad a hug when you see him.

I lost my mom when I was born 25 years ago. I still think about her everyday and wish I had the chance to know her. My dad kept a trunk of her most precious belongings and gave it to me last year, I've never treasured anything so much. Also saw video of her for the first time 2 years ago, and heard her voice. It was a different era obviously, I'm sure you have way more footage of your wife than my dad did. It might hurt to look at it, but if you can save items some of her things somewhere for your daughter in the future it will mean so much to her. You can also ask someone to do it for you of it's too painful, I think my dads sister in law and mother in law did most of the trunk. Let me know if you want to know more of my experience for your daughters sake. Just remember that you are everything she has now, and ask for help whenever you need it. I feel like a village raised me and even though I miss my mom, I'm so grateful for all the other parents/guardians/mentors I've had instead. When I get paid I'll try to donate!

Lord, I lift Nathan and baby Eilee up in prayer and ask for your watchful eye over them. Sending the Angels to surround them and protect them. Father, give Nathan the strength, courage, and love to walk this journey with you. May there be many that come in to show their love, while he goes through this. And Father, when the time of silence comes and the people are no longer around, he will feel alone, so I ask that is when You show up in such a way, Lord that Nathan knows You are right there. Carrying him, holding him, loving him, always watching over him. Thank You, Father for the love. In Jesus Name. Amen.

I don't know you personally but I will pray for you. I lost my young husband in March to cancer and I can understand the hurt and pain. I have been a Christian since I was 5 and this has been the biggest test of my faith, but I know God is good and I lean on him, not my own understanding. Im so sorry. Sometimes life is just so hard. I don't understand it. I am just so sorry for your loss.

Is there an address we can send cards, gift cards and clothing? Even if it is to their church , I understand they may not want to give out their address but if there is an address we can send things to that would be great. Thanks. Our hearts are broken with this news but will pray for a peace that can only come from our Heavenly Father at this time.

This is overwhelming. So awesome! However, I am so bummed because surely there is a processing fee to get the funds from go fund me.... if their percentage is correct on the website, It could be a heavy fee. I'm sure there are a few donors who could make that up privately with a check directly given to Nate. Raising $250k in a day is unreal! Hope we can make up that processing fee as an extra blessing.
