Hazel - I am very saddened to hear of the passing of Mr. Nelson. I truly believe that his leadership at St. Luke's as Choir Master and as music professor at Chipola, helped me to become the vocalist that I am today. I remember starting in the choir when I was 9 and continued until a little over a year ago when my health got bad. I remember the duets we would sing at St. Luke's, his help in training me to sing solos, and all those voice lessons. He was such an inspiration to me and truly believe his encouragement and teaching helped me love to sing.
Please know that you and your family are in my prayers.
