Our deepest condolences to the Nelson families, we enjoyed our many coffee visits with him at Chic n Bones and the Legion functions, and he always had a funny story to tell and loved to visit.

To all of my friends - the Nelson Family. I am so sorry to have heard of your dad's passing while at the same time rejoicing in how many years God gave him to you. You don't have to be told how special dad was- you already know. Oluf always had time to visit when we met - and he loved to visit! I know my brothers will miss him. I know that those of you (Janet) that live in Kinistino will miss the daily ritual of checking in on Dad and the others will sure miss his phone calls. Take care of each other as you mourn a wonderful man.

Our sincere condolences on the passing of Oluf. I will sure miss seeing him around, or him calling me "josie" & asking me when we were gonna move back into our house cause he was missing his neighbors... I thought that was so sweet 😊 Our thoughts & prayers are w/ the family.
