    Neva was a neighbor and she was always looking after us. We were newly married with an infant and we knew we could count on Neva for motherly advice, grandmotherly advice, nursing advice etc..She always went out of her way to make others feel welcome and comfortable. We sincerly missed Neva when we moved a few years back because no one speaks anymore, let alone treat you as family as Neva did. A wonderful soul has gone to heaven and we personally feel very comforted knowing she will be watching over. Our sincerest condolences go out to Robert and the family.
