  1. I got to know Nelson in the last couple of years of his life as a volunteer visiting people who are housebound. I grew quite fond of Nelson. I appreciated his sense of humour and his little laugh. He had a keen intelligence and a lifetime store of memories. He always struck me as a good honest man, one I wished I had known when he was younger. Rest in peace Nelson. I hope we meet again!
