    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of loss.

  2. Psalm 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”

    We know that Mrs. Neel is in the presence of her Lord, and He has prepared a place for her. My emotions are so mixed…joy for her, hope for us, but also sadness. We will be praying for your family during this time of grief.

    Our prayers for all the family and friends. May God wrap you in peace and comfort.
    Carol, the video tribute you all created is wonderful…so many beautiful pictures, and I felt such a warm celebration of your Mom’s life.

    • Thank you Debbie, Phillip and Ryan,
      Sorry two of you were under the weather, bbut thanks for your prayers. Glad you enjoyed the video. It was a challenge to narrow down to the right pictures but I think the funeral home did a great job putting it together. She was quite a woman! It’s so comforting that she is finally free from that body that had turned on her. Thanks for praying.
