To the Nielson family and friends, please accept my sincerest condolences. I had just spoke to then 1LT Nielson the week before. We laughed and talked about him waiting until the last minute to complete his base closure items. We laughed and he promised me that when he went to the next base, I would be one of the first people that he called. Even though we never met face to face, his laugh was infectious. My prayers and thoughts are with each and everyone of you. Trust in the Lord and He will see you through.
