Eric Alton Nelson, My Dad

Last evening, my Dad, Eric Nelson passed away 

 My Dad was always smiling and happy, every day, he looked at the bright side of everything
 Everyone loved my Dad, he was kind, gracious, generous and could grow the greatest garden ever
 He loved music, he played a clarinet years ago, and here he is playing the bells with President Marler at a family Christmas party
 Dad loved his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and for years he could be seen pulling a red wagon load of grandkids up and down the hill in front of his home

I am so grateful I was able to sit and talk with him when I was home a few weeks ago, a beautiful tender mercy.  I love you Dad.
