Even though it was Memorial Day weekend, many friends and family came. Burt (who was our best man when we got married) and his wife came from Portland; Nelson's parents came from Salem; John (a friend from Nelson's U of O dorm days) flew up from Santa Barbara. And lots of local friends came and packed out house. We all sang:
Heather was my camera person. She caught lots of well-wishes on video:
My friend Fred (Meyer) made a lovely cake.
Nelson's Mom made a scrapbook. There were paper and pens for writing greetings.
Friends brought food to share.
I made a poster of events from Nelson's birth year.
Happy birthday, Nelson!
