On February 22, 2014, Steven Nelson passed away by a carbon monoxide leak.  Steven passed doing his job, the job he loved so much.

John Largan, Steven's long-time friend and partner, expressed how much they enjoyed their recent vacation to Israel.  It was the trip of a lifetime for Steven.  His was able to retrace his family roots.  It was a very emotional trip for both.  In John's own words, this is what he wrote a few hours after Steven's passing:

"I'm so very glad now for the vacation we just had in Israel. You had wanted to go there your whole life. And we had such a wonderful trip. I will never forget how filled with emotion you were when you saw the Wailing Wall. I know you felt God was near. Only now do I realize how very significant this trip was. "

We would like to ensure Steven Nelson's legacy lives on in the place he loved so much.  We are partnering with the Jewish National Fund to create a garden where at least 100 trees will be planted in Steven's memory.  The JNF is dedicated to improving the environment in Israel.  We suggest a donation of $20 per person.  However, any amount, big or small, will go to the building of Steven's garden.  Our goal is to raise a minimum of $600. However, this is just a base amount.  All other amounts collected above 600 dollars will help with the upkeep of the garden and other charities.

Follow the prompts below to contribute to the fund.  We would like to say "Thank You" in advance for your donation.  Steven Nelson's memory will leave in Israel forever.
