Mi Welito,
Such a beautiful soul! You weren’t the life of the party you were the party. You brightened up the room when you walked in. You were always either cursing someone out or being a clown. I wish Tahj could have had more time with you. To know you is to love you, and you will be missed. I will see you soon and you can tell me more of your never ending jokes and stories.. love you

You were the life of every party. As a kid, I always wanted to go to Tia Elsa and Tío Nelson’s house. As an adult, I was excited
for my husband to meet my beloved Tio Nelson; I knew he was going to love you and everything you represented. Our memories and your legacy will live on. Sleep in peace. - Nena

My Tio Nelson,
You will be missed, the way you made me laugh, the times you insulted me, even the time you chased me around the living room. I'm going to miss the nightly arguments you had with Sofia before bedtime. You are in Heaven now and another Angel on my list. Rest in Heaven my wonderful uncle, you will live on in all our hearts forever.
