There’s so much to say about Naythan that we could go on forever. So much talent, in one person, to say the least. His passion for music was unimaginable. Anywhere we went, he would use his voice to bring people together. His smile mixed with his voice would light up the entire room. Naythan was the type of person to get along with everyone. Whether he knew them or not, he would make friends everywhere he went. Such an outgoing and joyful person he was. Hopefully, he is in heaven singing his heart out to his audience and has everyone smiling with joy. We will definitely miss that voice and that smile, but it was his time to share his talent with the ones above. We will always cherish all of your moments Naythan Murrell. You are gone but you will never be forgotten.
