Dear Doreen and Family,
I was so very sad to hear of Neil’s recent passing. Neil was a very quiet man who mostly kept to himself. He enjoyed the simplest things in life and didn’t require the luxuries that most need or dream of.
Several or so years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Neil and became friends with him. My son and I enjoyed many of his great stories of when he worked with the Bank of Montreal to his travels. He often enjoyed showing us family pictures of days gone by and pictures of his flower gardens that brought him great pride and joy!
I will truly miss his wonderful sense of humor and beautiful smile! But at the same time I am so very blessed to have the wonderful memories of our drives along the sea shore, and special suppers we were able to share with Neil.
“Until we meet again, Rest in Peace my dear friend”.
sorry to hear about neils passing my prayers and thoughts are with the family god bless you all
