Aunt Sandra, Jody, Melissa, Trevor and families, I can count on one hand the times shared in Uncle Neil's presence in my lifetime. Unfortunately distance had a way of keeping us apart. How I wish it were not so. He was such a gentle, calm and mild-mannered man who made you feel at ease and relaxed whenever you were in his presence. I will treasure the special memories of our brief visits forever. Sending sympathy and love to you all at this sad time. May YOUR special memories help ease the pain of such a great loss!

Sandra and family, There are so many, many memories Neil and I have created and shared over our lifetime as brothers...all of which are precious to me and cherished even more today. Some I associate with our growing up together and others as recent as his last couple of visits with us in Summerford. How we enjoyed sharing stories, laughing and eating together! I will miss our "brief" phone conversations, since he was famous at saying, "Sandra's here now, she'll talk to Mina". He was content just to make contact, to make sure we were alright. Our hearts are heavy today as we sense the sadness that comes with the loss of your/our loved one. We want you to know that we share the pain and though we may be separated by miles we hold you close in thought and prayer. Love to you all, Otto and Mina
