Nelson, as part of your work family, your passing sadly grieves me. I always enjoyed your life stories of family and trucking. You were one of a kind and tough as nails. My funniest memory was of you being taken for a ride in a shopping cart around the yard😂. We were a very close knit family at work and have great memories of our time together. My condolences to Holly, kids, grandkids and family. It was a privilege to know and work with you, Penny Gooding
