Great uncle Nelson was such a fun character. He never missed an opportunity to play his "fiddle" for us when they came to visit. He will be greatly missed.

Leona, Dottie and Kathy
Our condolences in your dad's passing. It was June when I got to last visit him with Leona. He always had a smile and kind heart. I remember going places with Leona, where he played his violin. You girls are lucky to have such an amazing man as your father. May it bring you comfort in knowing your parents are together again. Thoughts, prayers and hugs to you and your families.
