Dearest family, I am broken hearted at still another loss of a family member. The last time I spoke to Neal was during our mourning for Nana's death. Memories of him sitting on Nana's couch when it was time for me to pick Katie up are running through my mind. He would be playing with the kids or looking very seriously at the kids playing together as though he was contemplating their futures . Vicki, Sherry, Serena, please hug Marshall Neal for me . And know that I'm praying God's own Peace and Comfort over you all. I love you!
