Condolences for Nathan LeRoy Riblett
I didn’t know him all that well, but he was always kind and respectful to everyone he met. Guy gave me rides home when we worked together and he was always lookin out. Gg Nate.
My heart is very sad for my cousin and Nathan’s Mother, Bettie Sue, and his older brother, Christopher. Nate fought a hard battle and had many people praying for him . We all are going to miss Nathan .
Nathan was one of my students at Lincoln High School. As a student, he was one of few that helped keep the other students in line in the classroom. I enjoyed Nathan’s wit and humor. He was a kind-hearted soul. I hadn’t seen him for years but wondered about him off and on through the years.
