At funeral, friends and family honor Chaparral football star who died in shooting - Las Vegas Review-Journal

Monday, January 23, 2017

Not many people do that,” Charles Miles said.Shortly before the funeral, Nelson’s mother, Roxanne Bruce, said, “I have no feelings. I’m just down and sad. That’s all I’m feeling today.”Bonita Faye, Nelson’s aunt, stepped in when Bruce was too overwhelmed to read a speech.“The day he came into the world, he brought nothing but joy,” Faye said. “His love was genuine and pure. I’m so proud of him. He made it to the top and he will always be remembered.”Chaparral coaches and administrators described Nelson as a “humble yet determined leader” who set an admirable example.“Richard set goals and he obtained those goals,” Chaparral Principal Lolo James said. “He always aspired to become something. Next time you’re in a situation, think of Richard and how he would handle it. Use him as a reference.”Missouri State University students and coaches remembered Nelson for his easy, persistent smile.“In the short time that I knew him, his encouragement and support lived out to the very end,” said Dave Steckel, Missouri State’s head football coach. “Our football family loves him. I love him. His cousin Ricky will wear the number 20 for the rest of his career at Missouri State.”After the service, family and friends gathered in the rain for Nelson’s burial at Davis Funeral Homes and Memorial Park. At the graveside, Nelson’s older sister, Oniesha Coleman, sang “Pray” and “Champion,” two songs she wrote and dedicated to her brother.“This life is hard. I know it’s rough. If you fall down, get right back up,” Coleman sang. “Don’t give in. Keep your fight. Everything will be all right. Just know you’re a champion.”The crowd rose to its feet for a moment of silence and sang “Amazing Grace” before Nelson’s body was lowered into the ground.“He’s a good kid,” Nelson’s father, Richard Nelson Sr. said, holding back tears. “I couldn’t ask for nothing more. He was the best. He was very loved and inspired all the kids in many ways.”Sunday’s somber service and burial stood in stark contrast to a celebration of Nelson’s life the night before. Just before 7 p.m. Saturday, about 50 people gathered to party on the driveway of 4800 Sacks Drive.Guests, many in their early 20s, mingled in small groups, danced to rap music and trickled in and out of the house, where Bruce had laid trays of food and arranged a candlelit shrine to her son.“The point of tonight is not to mourn, not to be sad, not to feel that pain for even a moment, and instead celebrate,” said Coleman, who at 20 is just two years older than Nelson. “We don’t want to cry about how we lost a life. We want to celebrate the fact that we were even able to have this life with us.”Bruce smiled down at a photo of her son and said, “At first, it was really sad, but I’ve cried enough. I don’t want his murderer to see us crying and think he won. He didn’t win; God won.”Review-Journal writer Kimber Laux contributed to this report.

Volunteers keeping county's history alive - Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Monday, November 28, 2016

Haubstadt Area Historical Society, Allen believes “the gathering and compilation of an area’s past is paramount to its future.”He credits Betty Ahlemen and Bonita Johnson for doing yeoman work in the Princeton Public Library’s genealogy room. “Please take up the banner for the volunteers who do this work out of love and pride of community,” he urged.Allen said he thinks most people have little regard for the achievements of their ancestors until the memories have faded away – and only then do they search for the past. “If not documented, very little can be retrieved.”Johnson and volunteers spend hours and hours preserving documents in the basement of the library, where walls are lined with shelves containing hundreds of books of donated family histories. Researchers use the library’s resources of historic records from the Gibson County Health Department and Gibson County government to help people find ancestors and learn more about their communities.Hundreds of photos and glass negatives donated for preservation are also being digitized.She also updates an area online obituary database maintained by Browning Funeral Home, providing obituaries from historic local newspapers. The size of the obituary depended on the political party of the newspaper and the political party of the deceased, she mused. One newspaper might feature a front-page obituary, while the competing newspaper of the opposite political party might carry only a small death notice for the same person.It’s often Johnson who finds the missing pieces of local historic puzzles that you won’t discover by Googling the question online. She’s the person who knows that the city of Princeton owes a tremendous debt to brave Evansville firefighters who loaded an engine aboard a flat train bed and made it to Princeton within 30 minutes to help save the downtown square from destruction by fire in the 1800s.She’s also the person who helped find documentation showing the original intended purpose of Princeton’s Bicentennial Plaza on West Broadway.Commonly known as the “free parking lot” for deca...
