Nello, or, Nell, as we affectionately called him, was always polite & mannerly throughout the pain he endured. If he had requests, he called for Mom, sometimes, Ma'am, other times, Miss & was easily calmed when assured he would be having dinner soon, or going to bed soon. He often mentioned family as well. Rest in peace Nell, you will be missed. Condolences to his family.
