I love you all so much! I have so many awesome memories since high school with Kat's dad and the rest of the family. His laugh and sense of humor will not be forgotten. He truly was a Man among men. Praying for you all. Much love!

I am deeply saddened to learn this morning that my very good friend, and work associate of many years has passed away. I wish that I known that he was ill, so that I could have visited him.

Nelson was one of the nicest, kindest people I have ever known. He gave of himself to his friends and family far more than most people would, and he asked nothing in return. He was solid, and will be missed by all who knew him--a truly good man.
