I was shocked when I heard of Neal passing away. The last time I saw him was at Gail's funeral. To hear that you had to bury him breaks my heart. I have so many fond memories of the old days and can still hear Gail laughing about all the fun you had. Her stories were always the best. Rest knowing that they are united once again. Laughing together. Gail was a special woman, and loved Neal dearly. I will miss them both. I will also miss Neal calling me Lou-La. Praying for you.
