AceShowbiz - "One Life to Live" actor Nathaniel Marston passed away at 40, his mother Elizabeth Jackson announced on Wednesday, November 11. The late actor died after sustaining injuries from a tragic car accident last month.
"My beloved and cherished son, Nathaniel Marston, who was putting up the good fight until last night was not able to continue due to the traumatic and devastating nature of his injuries," Elizabeth wrote on Facebook. "His injuries, which Dr.'s did their best to heal were not responding to treatment and one after another his bodily functions failed to support his life."
The injuries Nathaniel suffered were very severe to the point that he might never be fully recovered if he could survive. "Had Nathaniel lived he would have required a ventilator and would never have been able to utter one more word and would have been sentenced to life as a quadriplegic," Elizabeth explained. "A condition that Nate would have never have been able to tolerate."
Hence, Nathaniel's mom felt grateful as God took away his pain. "By Gods love and mercy[,] Nathaniel was spared this living hell and has traveled on to be with God, his cherished Grandmother Mary Jackson, Grandfather John Jackson and my sister his Aunt Nora," she continued.
Elizabeth then thanked fans for their support over the past two weeks. "Know that I am deeply grateful for all of you for taking this tragic two week journey with me Nathaniel and our family," she wrote. "Your unfailing support, prayers, love and positive thoughts that you have sent our way, in what has been the worst two weeks of my life, have held all of us up giving us the strength to get through each hellish day."
Regarding Nathaniel's funeral arrangements, Elizabeth said that they would be held in New York City, NY, Kauai, HI and Gerlach, NV. She added, "As soon as dates for these services are known they will be posted."
