The Neal family were my neighbors for about twenty years. My son was one of the first babies that Ruth cared for. I was Marty's science teacher in the seventh grade. Marty was a babysitter when I needed one. Marty and Dawn, you are blessed to have had such good, sweet, and loving parents; you faith and good memories will help you during this sad time. I am so sorry for your loss.
