    I just recently met Nelson he done some body work on my car about 3-4 weeks ago. I am saddened to hear of his passing. He was very polite and friendly to me and done an excellent job on my car. I just want to send my condolences to the family and friends. So sorry for your loss. Prayers for you all.

    Just know that we are praying for your family during this very hard time. Our girls grew up together, went to church and events loving some of the same things. Even though time takes us to different places in life we still have a home-town bond. Know that we will be praying for your strength during these difficult days. Wanda, Alishia, ChaMarra, and Alonna
