I am so saddened by the loss of Neal but feel privileged that he was part of my world. I will always remember Neal for his kindness, his sense of humor, his hospitality and his generosity. Above all, I will remember Neal as my brother in Christ. May he enjoy the treasures of heaven for eternity! I will be praying for Shirley, his family and all who are feeling his loss in the days and weeks ahead. God Bless you all!
