He will be missed dearly by all who knew him.

“With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

    Neil would usually sit with us when we visited my father-in-law at the Craig. He became like family to us. My father-in-law passed away, but I saw Neil in July at the Plaza Restaurant with the group from the Craig. His face lit up because he recognized me and said “husband?” He was such a witness for Christ and we will never forget him.
