My heart is heavy for the family but "Uncle Neil", has my husband Al always called him, passed on the same day as Al and I know they traveled together for a golfing adventure that they have both been waiting on a very long time. My sincere condolences to all of you.

We are so sorry to hear of Neill’s passing. We always looked forward to our get togethers. Our thoughts and prayers with the entire family. The blessing is Neill and Jeanie are together again.

The blessing of Mom & Dad being together and with the Lord does not in any way minimize the loss you are feeling. Our prayers for you are peace, a comfort beyond words and a strength that allows you to walk through the upcoming days. The faith your whole family has is the ROCK you will need to stand on and cling to when the world feels like sinking sand. You are loved and in our prayers as you journey through this time of loss and grief.
