The family of Johnny Nelson would like to express their deep gratitude for the many acts of kindness that were shown to them during the passing of their father. We appreciate the cards that were sent with sweet messages of condolence, the yummy food that was brought in to make life easier for all of us, the beautiful flowers and planters that reminded us of how much our dad loved a pretty yard, but especially the kind words and friendships. We were truly honored by so many people who came to pay their last respects to our dad at his viewing and funeral. At this time, we would like to thank all those who served and loved him at Diamond Jane’s — plus his home health nurses and hospice. His days were happy because of the friendships he made with so many wonderful people. We want you to know that all the “little extra things” you did for him didn’t go unnoticed by his family. He loved and looked forward to the many people that came into Diamond Jane’s to perform and brighten his day. Our dad, Johnny Nelson, loved his little town of Grantsville and all who lived here. We as his family, would like to give a special thanks to the student body officers, cheerleaders, athletics, and band members who so respectfully lined the sidewalk as he left the church. He loved Grantsville High School and those “Cowboys.” A special thanks goes to Bishop Jim Holt of the Clark 2nd ward and Bishop Jeff Hutchins of the 5th ward and to their Relief Societies for the delicious luncheon they prepared. And finally, we would like to express our sincere thanks to Didericksen Memorial for the dignity in which they took care of our dad. Jay R. Didericksen made sure everything ran smoothly and brought such peace and comfort to our family. We are so thankful for all those who have touched our lives during this difficult time.
With much appreciation,
The Johnny Nelson Family
