A classmate and true country gentlemen. Always enjoyed Nelson (and Jackie) at the gatherings of the WMHS Class of '54. He will be truly missed but has joined his beloved Jackie at the feet of their Savior.

We have such fond memories of Nelson and Jackie and their family. Nelson was a fine example of a Christian man. We valued his opinions about faith, farming, friends and family. He lived a simple life that honored God through his faith in Jesus. I’m glad he is now back with Jackie in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Our prayers are with the Grove family as you grieve Nelson’s passing, but we celebrate with you at his home going.
I will be out of town Saturday so I will not be able to attend the service.
Sincerely,
Pam and Rob Stoneburner

Scott and Debbie, I was so saddened to learn of your dad's passing. He was such a sweet man and I enjoyed his gifts of chopped nuts he used to bring me at the bank. I will treasure the knowledge of his friendship. May God grant you peace and comfort during this time and in the days to follow.

Mr. Grove was always real friendly at church. Last time we were at his house he shared with us that he had helped do some special work on a tractor and ship it to the mission field. His smiling face will be missed.
