My condolences to Neal's family. May they find some comfort for their great loss in the hope expressed at Job 14:13-15.
My sincere condolences. It is reassuring to know that God promises in 1Cor. 15:26 that the last enemy, death, will be brought to nothing. He further promises in Isaiah 25:8 that he will swallow up death forever and wipe the tears from all faces. I pray that these thoughts from God's word will give you comfort and hope in this time of need.
Just learned of Neal’s passing. Although I don’t live around Conroy, have many fun memories with Neal and Teresa. So sorry Teresa and family, for your loss.

We are so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in all the special memories of Neal. The Howarth Family.
So sorry for the loss of your dear family member. We all look forward to the time when death will be no more and there will be real peace on earth. (Revelation twenty-one verses three and four; Psalms thirty-seven verse eleven)
My heart goes out to all the family of Neal, he was a fun loving and hard working man. He would do almost anything for his friend. I remember my ex-husband bringing Neal home and telling me, that this was his cousin Goob. We had a lot of good times with Teresa and Neal over the years.
My prayers and thoughts are with each and ever ones of you! Gail Frasher
