Dear Mrs. Silver and Nancy, I am so very saddened to hear of Neal's passing.  He was a very close friend of our sons Joe and Gordon during high school, was a teammate of theirs on all the BMU sports teams, and spent a lot of time at our house.  He was like another son to me.  I will always remember his great smile, his friendly personality, his kindness, and his respect to me.  I am grateful for the many phone calls from him over the years.  When he called, I could always count on a nice long chat as we caught up.  Please accept my condolences for your great loss.
