Neil was a kind hearted man, his door was always open, with a open beer waiting for you. His arms always offering a safe place, he wasn't only the entertainment, but also the protection. He was the guy you called when you needed someone to have your back. The life of the party, people gravitated toward him. He was so fun to be around.

We will all miss the late night phone calls to reminisce on old times, such as "Me Diamond", "Nebert", and "Neily Constily"!

He will be missed but never forgotten. We will love you forever Neil. Go Red Sox!!
