Not sure what to say?

I knew Ed when he and Patsy lived in Louisiana. Many times Ed and I played golf and lunched at his house.. I think of a wonderful lady who always had a smile.

I think of them often and miss him.

Goodby dear friend

Mr. Ed and MS. Pat were parishioners of St. Genevieve Catholic Church on the banks of Bayou Liberty in Slidell, Louisiana. In September of 2005 they attended Mass under the Bell Tree after hurricane Katrina destroyed our church. They were unassuming people and were very pleasant to converse with. They walked among us without any fan fare. We are sorry for Mr. Ed's loss and know that Ms Pat will miss him greatly. May she draw comfort in knowing that we keep her in our prayers. May he Rest...

I WILL REMEMBER

The Bouchards

I have wonderful memories of Mr. Nelson while growing up in California. The home in San Dimas where the "Bouchards" were often invited. I especially remember the player piano and singing together. I am praying for comfort for all of the family. Maria (Bouchard) Heinje

Telephoned Ed out of the blue 20 yrs. ago & maintained our connection throughout. He graciously allowed me to assist with his book. A wonderful kind man with a delightful sense of humor...I'll miss him.

So ling, Little Sparrow

I'd like to extend my heartfelt sympathy to the family of Ed Nelson at this difficult time. He was not only a first-rate actor but also an exemplary human being. He will be sorely missed.

My family resided in Pomona, California when I was a child and we lived near Ed's relatives. I knew his father and his sister Linda, who was a friend of mine. I saw Ed numerous times and remember him fondly.

please accept my dearest condolences. At times as this one God refers to himself as being a God of comfort and loves us and can provide us with comfort and make us firm (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17). I hope you can take comfort in those words and be encouraged at such a time
