To Aunt Frances and the entire family.
 My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I can't imagine my life without Uncle Nathan in it, at the church or back on the block.
Uncle Nate was a fine man who always had jokes. He made a great impact on my life. I have so many wonderful memories.
We say goodbye for now, but one day there will be no more goodbyes. RIP Uncle Nathan. I will carry you in my heart always.
Tell Mama and Daddy that I said hi and I'm doing fine. ;) Whenever I hear your song I will think of you. :)

Nathan was a true servant of God. Kind to everyone and would do whatever was asked of him without complaining.
To the family God has called a true servant of God home. God needs him now as one of his own soldiers. Know that he is watching over you.

To Mrs. Moyer, Jeffrey, and the family of Nathan Moyer.
Our condolences to a great man of God who was our next door neighbor on East 4th Street for 17 years.
Given the nickname as "Mayor of 4th Street" he befriended all and exhibited his many talents as well.
When he wasn't working, Mr. Moyer would be seen carrying, tools, ladders, and wood. etc to one of the homes on the block, or to the church that he so loved, Shiloh Baptist.
He was a "jack of all trades and master of many"....a hard working man..
Many years ago, I asked Mr. Moyer why he always called me Mrs. Pryor, but addressed my husband as Bill. He said he could never call me by my first name.
That's the respect he showed for so many people. He was loved and respected by our family so much and will never to be forgotten.
We extend our Heartfelt Sympathy and Love to the entire Moyer family.
Rest In Peace, Mr. Moyer.......your journey is over, but "God IS Smiling On You" right now.
The Pryor Family, Erie, Pennsylvania

Bro. Moyer, Was an honorable man with great morals and values. Loved his wife (Red) as he called her.
His son Jeffrey was his best friend. A great grandfather and most of all he loved his church family. He maybe gone but will never be forgotten.

Papa, I really cant believe your not here anymore. You are truly missed by all of us.
Please look over nana n daddy and help the both of them get thru the hard times. I know you are in a better place but I would trade anything in the world to have you back with us. What I would give jus to hear ur voice one more time, to hear you say that Rika, Terrin n myself made your day or that we crack you up or just to hear your laugh and see you smile.
I am blessed to have had you as my grandpa and appreciate your love and the advice you always gave me.
I love you so much papa. I will continue to keep u n nana in my prayers n close to my heart.
