Neal Victor Galford Sr.
November 28, 2017
Oh Neal......where do we begin describing our long time friendship.....first, and foremost, you would give the shirt off your back to anyone who needed help, or, simply a listening ear. We shared so many good, and bad (haha) memories in the moving business, and had so many good times together hanging out in the truck, on the job, hotels, etc etc. And let me tell ya, these are the memories Bob and I are going to hang onto forever, and we'll smile, and laugh as we relive them in our minds in years to come. We were not ready to say goodbye dear friend, but the Lord called you home, rest easy buddy, and continue to look down and shine, and comfort your family, and friends deal with your sudden absence from our world. Miss you, and will remember you forever...
