Neil's Family, Take the memories and keep them close to your hearts. Let those that surround you share memories that will give you strength, comfort and courage to face today, tomorrow and the many tomorrows ahead. Papa Neil would want his Grandchildren to live life to the fullest, smile when you think of him and you will even shed tears and that is okay.
