    We are both very sorry to hear of Neal’s death. Both of us have fond memories of many years of visiting, picnics, golfing, church and family outings. Basically enjoying life in middle Tennessee and having the opportunities to share his varied talents and interests. He was a good friend and will be remembered and greatly missed.
