    It’s hard to know what to say, except that I’m thinking of you in friendship and in sympathy. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love, Susan

    Jane..We just got news of Neil’s passing. I am stunned. Rick.and I have fond memories of poker nights.
    Neil was a special guy. He was always kind to me and the nazi yard man. I don’t remember Neil speaking poorly of anyone. He kept his thoughts to himself or shared them with you alone. A rare quality in these times
    Too many fine people are gone. Neil.was one if them. Our thoughts with you and Julea.
