Dale, we are sending our love and deepest sympathy to you and Nelson’s family in Florida/Georgia. We know the battle he has faced recently and for many years due to diabetes. I am reminded of the apostle Paul to Timothy “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day...” 2 Tim 4:7-8. Love, the Grigsbys
