He will be remembered always by his bon zanmi Jennifer of Canada.

Thank you to the extraordinary staff of St. Joseph’s Hospice who facilitated a grace-filled last walk for Nesly. Recognition to Bluewater Health and London Health Sciences Centre for their extraordinary care, to the Law Office of Ed Corrigan, London, Community Legal Assistance and the office of Marilyn Gladu, Sarnia, all lending their skills to immigration matters and to Mckenzie & Blundy Funeral Home (519-344-3131) and Resurrection Cemetery who cared for Nesly’s remains.
