Dad - what can I say. You will be missed by all. Your many stories of growing up in Kensington (even
if we did hear them 20 times before) were always entertaining. And your wonderful voice singing to us. You have shown this
family what it means to support one another and to love one another. Always your baby. Love ya Di
My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire McNeal
family. Many of them have touched my life and are on my mind and heavy heart. May you all find comfort in knowing that Mr.
McNeal is at peace and there is no pain. God bless you all!
