Linda and family, we were privileged to know Bill Nelson. We remember his kindnesses, his character, and his steadfast support for the Lord's work. I am reminded of the verse, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant,....enter into the joys of the Lord." ...this certainly applies to Bill Nelson. Prayers for you and the family...we will see him again!

Miss Linda, Todd, Tim, and other precious family members,I am so very saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Bill. He was everything a gentleman should be, God fearing, a wonderful husband and father, a genius when it came to business, and a true friend to all that had the great pleasure of meeting him. Please know that ALL of you are in my thoughts, deepest heartfelt prayers, and most importantly have my love. Mr. Bill was a wonderful, wonderful man and knowing him has enriched my life. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of every conversation we had. Truly fascinating and I always came away feeling that I was more enriched and a better person. What a wonderful legacy he has left for all ! All my love,Jann LukerFormerly with Lee Inspections

Tim, Mamie, Boys, and to all the Nelson family. I did not have the pleasure of meeting Mr Nelson but having read such an inspiring article about him I felt as if I did know him. What a wonderful man, husband, father and most importantly a lover of God, a fisherman for Christ. Though this loss is hard to bear know that memories are many and forever in your memory box. Draw from that. Prayers will follow you and yours.

I love how he shared his Faith right up to the end....although I know how his family will miss him, the memories he has left will endure forever. Praying for everyone.
