    So sorry for your loss, I knew Neal up until he was in High School and then I lost track of him. Our prayers are with the family.
    Love, Pat

    I too am sorry to hear about Neal. I think the last time I saw Neal was at his mother’s funeral. I didn’t see much of Neal as he was always gone when I was around or in Missouri. I hope that he knew Jesus and had accepted Him as his Lord and Saviour. Love, Jerry

    I am sad to lose one of our own. Neal’s smile and video tribute remind me of how blessed we have been. Good to see pics of Aunt Barb, Uncle Don, Grandma and Grandpa Mc, the cousins and to see my cousin-in-law Marsha (even if thru pics).

    Sorry this is late, but I am only computer semi-literate and couldn’t get this site open. Both Carol and I send our condolences and prayers to the family. Neal was my oldest nephew. (he used to go by NEAL, as did his maternal grandfather, Tom Neal). As a fellow Vier Nam veteran, I was very aware that his experience there had a terrific enflunce on the rest of his life. We haven’t seen Neal for many, many years, but we have many fond memories of him.

    Neal & I were married for 7 years when I was 19 and he was 25 and he was my first love. He was a true free spirit whose service for his country forever changed him. I hope and pray he is happy and free and with his Mom, Dad and sister with the Lord.

    Neil sorry took me so long to say hey buddy. This is Butch Horner, me and Neil lived a life long before he joined the Army or anything he was involved in before the age of ,19. We hitch hiked out to California the fall of 1969 after making it to Woodstock later that year. We were both 16? that year. We got a place in Long Beach, somehow still remember the address. 555 Golden Ave. Couple blocks from the beach and stayed in contact with most back in OKC. Spent a lot of time back n forth to Bahah Mex that winter. There was a place back then called the Pike on the Beachfront back then. Walked in on Hendrix playing one note and shot up to LA and snuck in the Whisky Go Go one note when the DOORS were playing! Have a million stories like that I could share. Anyway surprised me you gone so long buddy. See ya Butch Horner.

Leave a Condolence
