Dear Rose and family,
I was saddened to hear of Neil's passing.
I have such fond memories of the days I worked at the Beechcroft.
When Rose and Neil walked in it was always a pleasure. It was like a party instead of work. Everyone was always happy to see their smiling faces.
Neil will be missed.

Sorry to hear the sad news Neil was a very great family friend. I can only imagine him sitting at a kitchen table with my parents, and Jimmy and JoJo having a few drinks and many laughs in Heaven. I'm so happy I was able to visit him and Rose for a few hours in September. God Bless Neil you will be missed back here on Earth

No tears, not his style. Great picture, reminds me of the 18 year old who gave me the privilege to visit CapeCod, for the first time. It was fun, fun, fun, for the next 60 years. Fondly remembered, with love to Rose and the family. Semper Fi, Marine !! Sally
