In Memory of Joseph Nelson
Sadly we must announce the death of Joseph Edward Nelson. 
 
Joe was born on March 31st 1954 in Clearwater. He left us September 16th 2013. I have known Joe most of my life and have to confess the words to write this are hard to come by. What is there to say? As I sit here, searching my own cluttered mind, I find more and more long forgotten memories about Joe and his family. Everything from a Masonic fish fry to me and his daughter Julie being the lead actors in a play. Joe is my friend and I will miss him. The following are words, which I heard Joe deliver a time or two, from a Masonic 
service:

    We extend to the bereaved relatives and friends of our departed Brother our sincere sympathy in this hour of sorrow, and we pray that "He who tempers the wind to the shorn Lamb" will give them His divine comfort and consolation, and that they may come to realize that the spirit of our Brother is happy in his father's house, where "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and where there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away."
