    VERY SAD TO HEAR OF THE PASSING OF DAVID NELSON, LAST OF THE POPULAR NELSON FAMILLY. WHEN I WAS A KID WE USED TO WATCH THE WEEKLY TV SHOW AND BECAUSE OF RICKY, I DECIDED I WOULD HAVE A BAND TOO. I TOOK UP THE DRUMS AND RICKY GOT FAMOUS! WHEN I LIVED IN LAGUNA BEACH, CA I USED TO SEE HARRIET AT THE ALBERTSONS STORE DOING HER OWN SHOPPING. SO TODAY WE CLOSE THE BOOK ON A FAMILLY THAT SO MANY OF US GREW UP WITH.
