My deepest sympathies. Nelson was an man with a genuine caring heart and yes he loved Shorty. I remember him as one of the original 4 that visited me regularly when I worked at the Friendship Centre.Now he will be laughing with “Sausage”, Daryl and Randy. I will always be thankful for the wild onions and the red willow I would pick at his place. He loved to sing so taking the guitar to his place was special too. May the Creator wrap his everloving arms around all of you as you say your final goodbyes. May fond memories of him be with you always. Judy “Blue Eyes” Bogdan
