    Our most sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the McNeese family. We never had the chance to meet Thomas but have heard many great stories about growing up in Fargo. It would have been fun to hear a few of those memories from Thomas himself.

    During this time of sadness rejoice in the knowledge that Thomas served our country, raised a loving and successful family and lived a full life, on his own terms and in his own way.

    Dear Tim, Kelly and Chuck,
    So sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. Tony and Angie were the dearest folks around. I have so many great memories of your family. I do believe that those two wonderful people had the greatest sense of humor of anyone. I am sure they are enjoying a wonderful reunion in heaven with their God and Joe and Don and Ruth. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Dear Tim, Kelly and Chuck,

    I was heartbroken to hear about your dad passing away. When I came to Fargo, Tony would take mom (Nancy McLaughlin) and me out to lunch. He has that Irish fun and conversation. It was a joy to be with him. My mom always told me that Tony had the nicest kids. I am sorry I never met any of you.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you,

    Maddie Ross
