Nathian Mambru Gomez
Nathian Mambru Gomez, 24 was called by our Lord on Monday, March 24, 2014.
Nathian was a living example of what life is about. At age, 1 he received his first heart transplant. At age 11, he needed it and our Lord blessed him with another heart. At age 15, once again with the Lord by our side he received a third heart and kidney transplant, which to this day has helped him live a normal and productive life. He graduated from J.B. Alexander in 2007. He pursued a career in Business Administration w/ Entrepreneur Studies and went on to graduate from St. Mary’s University in 2012. He was on his way to receiving his Masters in Entrepreneur Studies this May from Texas A&M International University. Never did he complain about his illness and that never stopped him from achieving his dream of graduating from college and pursuing a career in business….. Always calling himself an Entrepreneur. He had many dreams of helping others, just a small way of him giving back to all those that have helped him through his journey. He gave so much, yet always thinking of himself last. He was an inspiration to all and he touched so many lives with his words of wisdom. He always loved to give advice to his friends and family. Our Lord needed an angel and he indeed gained one with the biggest heart. “Everything happens for a reason and God has a bigger plan.”
