  • We are saddened by the news of Nelson's passing. Myself and my sisters still have great memories of the times that the Walkers and the Hueys had while growing up in El Dorado, Arkansas. I regret that I cannot attend the services on Friday, however, I will be thinking of Nelson and his family on such a sad day.

  • Susan, I am Margaret Walker Organ a cousin of Nelson Eddy. We were the same age and had many good times together growing up in ElDorado. Uncle Elbert and Aunt Faye, Nelson and Donnie was very close to my Dad and Mom and my brother and sister. Mr Dad was Nelson's uncle. I tried the past two Christmas to send Nelson a card but they both came back unclaimed. I am so sorry we did not keep in touch. Your family is in our prayers.

  • Laura and I want to extend our sincere sympathy to your family. We always enjoyed visiting with "Nelly" when he came to Westover Hills to pick up the children. They loved him so much, and, I know, he loved them a lot, too. I know they spent a lot of special times together. We have missed and will continue to miss seeing him.
