  • I just read in a answer of his that he had issues of the liver. What a real shame.
  • I don't think I knew Nelson, but I hate when anyone loses a fight with any kind of disease. He's in heaven now and will never be in pain again.
  • I had to check out your profile to make sure it was not some impersonator. ...... I'm really sorry to hear that. But it reminds me that no matter how good AB is, all of us will leave it one day :'(
  • I am shocked to hear about this. My sincere sympathies for all those who knew him as a friend.
  • What? Wow!! Thank you for letting me know! While we may not have interacted as much as others, I will miss him.
  • Nelson was a great contributor to this site and a person I looked up to and respected.He often gave very humorous answers and didn't seem top take a whole lot seriously. He will be greatly missed by many of us who knew and loved him.
  • Good night, Nelson This is what I will remember............ http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/2291397 And then his birthday party......... http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/559983
  • Are you serious?!??!?!!? What a sad loss :( Too bad i didn't get to know him better... we only talked a couple times on AB :(
  • I enjoyed all the interaction I had with Nelson, he seemed a thoroughly decent human being. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.
  • Over the last year and a half, I think I have only interacted with Nelson a few times, BUT, I am SO sorry that he lost his fight before he could get that transplant! It IS a shame. And, I am sorry for the loss of those who were very close to him, especially his wife. Thoughts and prayers to all!
  • From what? I didn't even know he was ill! He was an AB friend..I have nothing better than that to say about him. :(
  • I'm very sad to hear that. Though he wasn't on my friends list, I did like him and really enjoyed his contributions. A great loss indeed.
  • What? Oh my god. I didn't really know him. But I can't believe it. Very, very sad.
  • Saddest news I've had in a long time. I will miss him greatly.
  • So long, Nelson. You're back with your dog again, old buddy. Give him a pet for us, as all dogs go to heaven. I'll provide the Honor guard.
  • Rest easy, friend.
  • Nelson made me laugh, I'll miss him very much, Rest in Peace mate.
  • Nelson was a good egg. So sorry to hear it.
  • I'm still in shock but just had to share a few words about Nelson. I can't begin to say what he meant to me, his friendship, his kindness, his humor, our common love of animals and food. There is such a huge hole in me right now I don't know how to express it. He will be so so missed!!! I wish it was a bad dream but I know it's not. I will miss him more than words can say or tears can show. I wish his family peace of heart.
  • He was a true Gentleman and i for one will miss him,his funny quips and straight forward answers:-(
  • http://www.answerbag.com/profile/?id=133716 Nelson? :| Oh my god... I can't believe it. One of the funniest guys I had ever met... R.I.P. :(
  • Yes. I enjoyed both his questions and his answers. I will miss him.
  • Oh no, I hate to hear this. He was so sweet & precious I can't believe we lost another AB family member so sad were going to miss him so much
  • Um, Nelson the vegetarian with the dog? Really? My God. Who told you? How did he die? Jeez. That's really sad (and unexpected).
  • I am shocked and I thought I was hearing this wrong, my thoughts are with you my friend.
  • goodbye friend. I hope that the wind always fills your sail, may the beer always be cold, your dog at your side and your wife that you loved be smiling. And may there always free WiFi in heaven for you.
  • Oh my...I am stunned... His questions and answers always brought a smile to my face. He will be deeply missed. My deepest condolences to his family and friends. Rest In Peace Nelson.
  • I never knew him unfortunately. I've heard a lot about him and his witty responses. I'm sorry I'll never meet him.
  • I met Nelson once when he asked for encouragement when he was going to take some time off. I think he had asked for hugs so I sent him some hugs that I really meant. I read about Nelson in the middle of the night at work and I cried.
  • Mariah Carey - Bye Bye
  • I am so sorry but how old was he and how did he die
  • I'm very, very saddened by this. I'm speechless. May he rest in peace.
  • Nelson was one of my favorites. He was a great guy, and my thoughts go out to his family. Does anyone know how/why? Was it expected? I was never told of illness or injury.
  • I always enjoyed connecting with Nelson' he will be deeply missed. I will remember how he would turn his avatar upside down,so funny. By Nelson - keep the Angels laughing.
  • A funny, witty guy. Most of all a true gentleman. We could all take a page from his book yo...
  • http://www.paulkitwin.com/pics-of-paul-kitwin/ Several months back I learned that Paul (Nelson) had cut off his long hair to donate it to a children's charity that make wigs for young cancer patients. I thought this was the nicest thing in the world since he had his long hair for 20 years. I asked him to send me a photo with short hair. I never did get one from him. Sadly, I now have access to plenty of photographs of him at his memorial page that his widow Suzanne put up. :-(
  • Sadly, I did not have the chance to know Nelson but I can tell he will be deeply missed. Rest in peace, Nelson.
  • Wow..I didn't know. So sorry to hear, he was a very nice person.
  • r.i.p Nelson never had the chance to meet him but i read a few of his old posts he seemed like a real sweetheart...question though? im not meaning to offend i just find it so touching that he had such a impact. how did u guys know that he passed?
  • Nelson was the very first person I interacted with here on AB, and I will never forget his kindness and humor. I wish his family peace.
  • I will miss Nelson very much. I remember he once told me to "break out in song in public", the Tom Jones song "What's New Pussycat?" "It's very liberating when you're feeling a bit down," he told me. I remember telling my friend that that would be kind of "freaky" and "alienating", but Nelson pressed on, "Do it!" "Do it!" he told me, laughing out loud. Another time he told me that it's nice to wear comfortable, casual clothes to work, like "Hawaiian shirts." I laughed so hard but he meant every word he said! I never forgot those little exchanges between us, and I will always keep that memory in my heart, as I feel I have lost not only a good friend, but a strong support system as well. I am very sad tonight. :(
  • I don't know what to say, I just ran across this and I had no idea. What an terrible loss to so many. I will always remember Nelson's wit and charm and gentle humor. Godspeed Nelson.
  • Nelson was a great ABer. I want to remember his answers to the ... fun questions. He was hilarious. We weren't that close, but he was always respectful, and appreciative of others' answers and humor, that I saw. He will be sorely missed. :-(
  • i do believe that your not the only one to whom this is sadding news to. to a great man and well loved husband , nelson . we will miss you.
  • Nelson was the one who started the whole jetpack thing, he was the funny one, the one who always found a way to make y ou laugh in the worst of times. the one who over time become part of ab s foundation . who loved us all . rest in peace my friend.
  • I can't believe it!!!! A good man! You will be missed!
  • This is absolutely shocking news to me. I am stunned. Nelson may you rest in peace.
  • Saddened to hear this... :( Sleep well, Nelson.
  • Ha Ha!
  • I will remember Nelson for his sharp wit and his answers which were usually most helpful.:)
  • The Jetpackers his sharp wit and for just being him:-(
  • He wasn't like most AB'ers. He actually had a personality.
  • I am in shock, having just heard the news. Such a loss.
  • I loved this one... Q: Frosted Mini-wheats or Life cereal? Only two choices. http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/848592
  • http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/848204 another great one!
  • OK, posting this again. Nelson (Paul) was my husband, my heart, and my soul. I loved him more than anything in the universe. If someone has a problem with that, downrate me. I'm sorry I didn't jump onto AnswerBag and post when this happened, but as you might imagine, I had a couple of things on my mind at the time. I really appreciate seeing how many people he touched - even though he had never met them in person. He would like that.
  • This one sums up how great of person he really was. http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/867915
  • I would have to say there were many, but this one is my favorite: http://www.answerbag.com/a_view/867915
  • I am reading allot of great things about Paul... Thank you!! But the best thing about NELSON, is he is the best brother I could ever ask for... He was a role model like the best of them... I wanted nothing more then to be like him when I grew up, and even as an adult I still want to be like him... If I ever needed a honest answer he would tell me... I love you Paul... Please also share your thoughts with his family on www.PaulKitwin.com
  • I will always remember his gentle spirit.
  • I didn't know Nelson outside of AB. So I guess the best I can say of him is I respected his answers and questions for their quality and content. I wish his spirit rest and be at peace. The tough part is now complete. AB is a little diminished with your absence.
  • I never got to know Nelson, I haven't been on AB that long. Seems to me he must have been a very well liked person to have had so many care for him. As his friends I would think the greatest gift we could give in his memory would be to do the one thing he can no longer do, and that of course would be to watch over the person who lost the most, his wife.
  • I am sorry for the loss of your friend. He seems to have made a huge impact here on AB. I did not know him as I joined after but have wondered from day 1 what the jetpacking for nelson meant. Now I know and am sure he has made a difference in many lives.
  • Well Nelson, it's been over a year since we lost you. I still miss you and think of you. I still smile when I remember your sense of humor.:):)Thanks Nelson!
