Im so sorry i can't attend the funeral service but I've been exposed to the corona virus and the Dr. told me not to go. My daughter and my grandson have it. Its awful. Neoma and my wife were best oof friends in school and they considered them selves sisters. I lost Freda to cancer almost exactly the same way we lost Neoma. Some things i just don't under stand Neoma and Freda were both very special people, i think of Freda all the time and now i will nave two to think of. I feel very fortunate to have special friends like that. I do know what Mike is going to go through keep your head up and think about the memories you shared to gather and it will get you through.

Sorry to hear of Neoma's passing. My thoughts are with you.
My thoughts and prayers are with Mike, Richard, Steven, Jason and all of her family. Neoma and I first met when we entered junior high. She has been a leader in our class of 1961 keeping us all informed and organizing many of our class reunions. Her sweet smile will certainly be missed. .
