So sorry to hear of your sad loss of Neil. I lived next door to him in Te Anau and have many fond memories of chats and visits with him and Muriel. We of course have one of his famous wooden wheelbarrow planters and a black and white windmill cat that everytime the wind blows his legs I think of Neil and his always smiling happy face. He will always be fondly remembered by us. Our love to Muriel who must be lost without him. Kind Regards.

We are sad to hear of the passing of Uncle Neil and extend our sumpathies to Aunty Muriel and our cousins, Chrissy, Kevin, Peter, Donna and Anthony and their families, I can still hear his wicked laugh and see him striding down the paddocks. Those memories remain even though he has left us. Love from us John & Sandra
