Dear Family of Williams C. Nelson, My Greatest Condolences to all of you, I remembered him well. I was a former Associate of the Boatmen's First National Bank of Kansas City while Bill and his age of 57 was President and CEO and I was age of 28. I left the Bank on December 1995 before did not know about Bill passed away in 2014 after his final age of 77.

I remembered that we met in the Folly's Theater for our Bank Quarterly Conference while the American Sign Language Interpreter was with us on first time. I employed for 2 years from February 1993.

Last time I saw Bill exit his historical office. He gestures his hand to salute over me. I never forget his final action well.

I worked for Bill in London 40 years ago when he was Vice President of Mellon Bank. Every year without fail we have exchanged Christmas cards and exchanged photographs of our growing families. I havnt seen Bill since then but looked forward to catching up, if only briefly, once a year. I hadn't heard from him this year and knew in my heart that something was not as it should be. He was a beautiful person and although I havnt seen Bill or Barbara for 40 years I am missing him so much. My love and thoughts to Barbara and family of course. We are all suddenly in a different world. Chris Bailey

My sister, Jan Wagner, told me that Bill had passed away. I extend to you and your family my deepest sympathy. I loved seeing you and Bill several years ago at Rolling Rock...and I was quite surprised to run into you two.
