Memories Timeline


  1. Deep sympathy to your family and the loss of Neil. We are from Horace and our children grew
    up together and still Simon and Jeff have been together in the military.
    Extend our sympathy to one and all.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will miss Neil very much, I loved talking with him. Especially when he would talk about his younger days. He was such a kind and sweet man. Tess, if you need anything, please let me know.

  3. Dear Family,
    This is such sad news, when we hear of another of my Dads’ good friends who has left the earth. I am sad for you all, but I am glad for him. I don’t know if Neil had been ill, but I am sure he is standing in glory, where all tears are wiped away. May God grant you His peace and comfort in the days to come. May your good memories keep you company when you miss him. May his legacy in you all live on through your families. I remember Neil as such a friendly, happy, optimistic fellow and I though Dad was so lucky to have him for a friend. I always thought Neil and Tess were such a cute couple, so much in love, so devoted to family and so gracious to my stepmom, Delores, after she lost Dad. You have much to be proud of and so much to look forward to, as we will all be reunited one day. Blessings!

    Where I worked. A very nice person. Sorry for your loss. He will be missed.

  8. Aunt Tess and Cousins,
    My heart is heavy hearing that Uncle Neil has passed away. Although I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with him and your family growing up, I do fondly remember the visits Uncle Neil and Aunt Tess made to Iowa, especially for my sister’s wedding…..and the visit my daughters and I made to Fargo a few years ago. Uncle Neil was so kind and welcoming to us. I will always treasure my memories of him. I send you all much love and prayers for your comfort and peace at this difficult time. Connie
