    Neil and I were best friends from age 6. Best Man in my wedding in '68 and an inspiration to all who knew him. We stayed in touch throughout his career of caring and his enthusiasm for all entertainment that included his own talents in music and Texas Holdem! Everybody should have at least one Best Pal, and I had the very best.
