He will be missed... frown

I remember coming to one Koffee Klatch and Neil looking up at me and saying, "Hello Mr Affable. How are ya?"

The thing was... he meant it.

Prayers sent for his family and those close to him.

I don't recall if I met Neil prior to my 5-yr hiatus in WA, but I did meet him as I reconnected back through the SoCal Koffee Klatch. I learned he was ill, but his passing came so quickly after the last time I saw him. I'm sorry I didn't have the time to get to know him better. I think I would have been better for it.

Rest in Peace, Neil.
