Mary Williams, September 18, 2020 Trish ... words cannot express what I want to convey. You and Neil were one of the few couples we knew who had a similar journey to my relationship with T-Mitch. Married in 2000 - you woulda celebrated the big 20 in October. I get it. I'm sorry you and your beautiful Katelyn, Brittney, and loved ones are going through the heart ache of this moment. Das and I are here for you. Please don't hesitate to reach out. I only met Neil a few times and all I can say is that he was a gentle soul who loved you and your daughters from his core. May he rest in peace ... pretty sure him and T-Mitch are having a few drinks together right now and I bet both of them are saying, "Our families will be alright." ~ Love y'all!
