My friend Neil,
We met around 1958. We were Just kids back then. But we shared so many good times I loved our double dates. You and Eleanor will forever be part of the best time of my life. We spent most of the time laughing, it was so much fun. I’ll always love and miss you both.
Rest In Peace together in heaven. Arleen

I am very blessed that my mom and I got to spend time with Uncle Neil this summer. I loved hearing stories from their childhood. I will always remember Uncle Neil being there for my mom and dad. When my dad was in the hospital he was there and I am so grateful for that. I will miss him dearly.
