What sad news. Have always loved seeing him here and there. Was such a sad time in his life when him and my sister lost that little boy. Father and son joined together now ...I'd bet a sweet meet. My condolences to family and friends. Rest in peace my friend.

I am very sad to learn of this. I worked with “Nelson” at RIG many years. I would see him in the morning at the gas station getting his scratch offs. I will miss our little chats. Rest In Peace, my dear friend.
