"Remembering you with love on the 2nd Anniversary of the day you passed from this life to eternal life, Art. You always felt your life was less than it should be, that you could have been a better person and done more for your family. But you never saw yourself through our eyes... you were such a good, good man, and a loving husband, a dad who helped your sons and the best grandpa your grandchildren could have had. I hurt when I think of how complicated seeing those kids became when their parents' marriages ended... such a sorrow settled on you and Kay. But there you were, ready to step in and show them how loved they were. Thank you for all the love you gave to Bev and me, Mom and Dad and Fred... and my children. Our time together was precious... the memories more precious still."

"July 7th 2015 draws to a close on the 1 year anniversary of your death, Art. I'm still trying to figure out who I am without you... But this I know without a doubt... you are still loved and remembered... your legacy lives on in your grandchildren and our memories of you... and this world was made better by your 65 years, 7 days of living.
Your Sis... Pat"

"Art Nelson was my kids buckaroo! He loved them and they loved him. If I ever needed help with anything for his grandkids, I knew I could always count on him. The memories that my kids shared with him will forever be in their hearts. I wish they would have got to see him one more time. But I know he is their angel in heave watching over them. Both him and Kay."
