Thinking of you all with sympathy! Another guardian angel to watch over us here on earth while he joins his sisters on the dance floor.

I'll always remember him with a smile on his face. So Glad that Al & Terri were able to come see my Mom (Ardella) & Aunt Rose before they passed on.
And that we were able to see him also.
The Nelson's are having a wonderful family reunion up in Heaven!
Our thoughts & prayers are with you & your families.
Love,
