Not sure what to say?

At age 19, Glenn Nelson worked for my grandfather, Donald J. McMahon, at Sebastian Beverage Sales selling Budweiser. I was always so appreciative of Glenn's visits and stories, as they were a link to the grandfather I never knew. And of course, Glenn's tremendous storytelling skills were just extra!

This sweet, dear man will be missed by so many who have know and loved him over the past years. He always had a smile and a kind word. God bless and keep you, Bridget.

Bridget, we are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts are with you.

Dell, we are sorry for your loss. May God give you peace and comfort throughout this time of sorrow.

First met Mr Nelson when he visited my boss Marcy Porter, Sebastian County Treasurer, in 1987. He was such a pleasant gentleman and his stories were the best! He would bring us vegetables from his garden and always sit a spell! Loved all the pictures and seeing how blessed his families were to have had him for 94 years!

Very thankful to have had Glenn as part of our family for the last 14 years. He always shared his love for the Lord and his many talents. He taught us how to shine cowboy boots, how to make cornbread and when the tomatoes were ready to be picked. We love you.
