I’ve known Nelson for many years ,he was a good friend. When were teenagers and could sneak out of the house after our parents were sleeping, we would run into Nelson with one of his guy friends and walk together. Nelson was always good for a laugh, he was so sweet. As long as we were all hanging together we were staying out of trouble. He was like an older brother watching out for us and making sure we got back home safe. Sad day for all who knew him. Prayers and hugs go out to his family.

Nelson and I argued a lot about wills but he did finally agree. He was a awesome at carvings and did me my favorite of a squirrel for my cottage. Had a lot of arguments and laughs. Will miss that. RIP Nelson and you will now be with Shirley.
