I used to live across the street from Mr. Nelson. I will always remember him giving me his Sunday newspapers when he was done with them, and he always added some candy in the bag for the boys. He was such a sweet neighbor to have around, and I always felt he was looking out for me. He was certainly one of the kindest people I will ever meet in this lifetime. I am so sorry for your loss, he was a great man and I am sure your hearts are full of wonderful memories.
