I remember James Neal keeping everyone laughing with our Youth Group at Church.  I can remember going on my first hay ride with the Youth Group and thinking they were the nicest people I had ever met.  I am sorry James Neal is gone and will not be at the reunion.  I am looking forward to visiting with everyone there.
