Of all the gifts I ever received, the gift of being taught to fly was one of the greatest gifts of all. I’ve spent almost my entire life flying and without Shorty, the joy of flying would not have been mine. I’ll remember him always with gratitude.
We are so sorry to hear about Uncle Nelson’s passing. He was am amazing man and our Mom thought the world of him and his family. Sincere condolences to all. Karen and Dick
