    • Sorry for your loss. Neal was always good to us. He would bring us all kind of vegetables that he grew. We camped with them at KOA in Cherokee .Neal and Peggy were great friends to us.

  7. I will be saying prayers for the family. Just know that I won’t be able to attend today but my thought and prayers are with the remaining family. I told him when we visited the other day no good bye but I’ll see you and Peggy again. They have always been my rock and kindall and katelyns. We loved both of them so much but now they are ibn Heaven with perfect health. They would always come to my house or mother and daddys house where Kindall lives for Christmas and the girls would make Neal whatever he asked for; It was great to sit and listen to the stories between him and Gary. We all had some good times over the years even before I was married. They were just always there for me. If there is anything I can ever do for any of you please don’t hesitate to call. My legs might not work but my ears do. Prayer for peace within .
