Kay, I'm so sorry to hear about Neal's passing. I have great memories of going to Texas to visit Uncle Clarence and Aunt Elsie when we were younger. One of my favorite memories of Neal was when we all (Neal, Ned, Don and I) went to the movies. Neal went barefooted because he thought he could get in for the "under 12" price. And I think he did. He always made me laugh. We lost Ned and Don so many years ago, but their memories are still with us. I know your children and grandchildren have some great memories to see them through this difficult time. Much love to you and your family.

It was a privilege to know and work with Neal. He was a person I could go to for professional advice or personal. Neal didn’t sugar coat anything therefore I always knew I was getting a straight and honest answer, like it or not! He was one of a kind and will be truly missed by everyone who knew him.. Rest In Peace my friend and Lord, please give Mr. Neal’s family strength during this time... All my Prayers, Cory LeBlanc
