  • Hailey Goulet  - I am deeply sorry
    Losing a family member is very hard. Especially your father. One thing to remember is that he was so proud of you, the women and mother you are. He looks down on you know and smiles at all the memories you have made together. No, he is not with us in this world, but he is in your heart. No, I didn't know Neil, but he sounds like a lovely human being. Yes he passed unexpectedly, but he is no longer suffering with medical and emotional challenges. Feel better soon!
  • Steve and Susan Connors lorent  - Sending our love to Niel's family
    Our love and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Neil was a very special guy. I always loved spotting him in the hallways in high school. He always reminded me I wasn't alone. Not hard to spot with that big red afro towering over everyone else. He was so easy to love.
