I am so sorry to hear this Alice and family. I called and talked to him on his 90th birthday! He sounded good and told him it would have been Don Brant’s 90th birthday also. My goodness the “Thirsty Dozen Boys” are only a few left! May God bless you and your family. Love Lillian Kunz.

I remember our good times together in Corpus Christi. Nels always kept us “on our toes”. It is devastating to loose a husband and your best buddy. I found comfort in remembering all the happy times Bob and I had together. It gave me something to lean on — and I know it will for you.
Your family will be your rock, The Lord will give you and your family strength.

My sincere condolences to your family and may God give your family power beyond what is normal to help you through this difficult time. God never intended for humans to suffer the debilitating effects of aging. On the contrary, his purpose was and still is that men and women enjoy perfect health on a earth-wide Paradise. Only when paradise is restored, will we be able to enjoy peace, plenty of food and vibrant health along with everlasting life. Many of our loved ones will be resurrected when ‘the meek ones will possess the earth…’ Psalm 37:11.
