Sympathies to Neil's family. He was always the "light guy" in Monroe when I was a kid. We could always depend on Neil for keeping our electricity on!
Sincere condolences to the family. Thinking of you all during this hard time.
I'm sorry to hear about Neil. I've known him all my life, he was a good guy. I went to school with Kelsie. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
