Not sure what to say?

Sadly, I never met you, but your son Chris is a fine testament to your kindness, integrity, and commitment to education, not to mention carrying on your family resemblance! You and Edina must have been very proud of your family.

I am thinking of you, Edina, and send my love and prayers to you and your family.

Uncle Putch, as his nieces and nephews called him, was quick to smile, quick to challenge and always there to support. His was a life well lived. His marriage to Edina was an wonderful example of how two people could live and grow together with deep love and respect for the other. I am grateful to have been a part of his life.

Met Aldo through the Oakland Senior Olympics and Northern California Senior Olympics. A great sportsman and someone who seemed to enjoy life. Memories will keep you living. Rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Edina.

Mr. Nelson was a truly incredible man, raised a great family and helped countless others. I had the pleasure of knowing him for almost 20 years. He would always greet you with a kind word then challenge you with a witty question, regardless of your response he would listen and take in your point of view. When you asked him his opinion he would always have a clear answer in which he would explain his reasoning, whether you agreed or not you understood where he was coming from. I will miss...

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
