Tom Neal

It is with a very heavy heart that I must tell our extended rving family that Tom left his cancer and pain behind and went to be with his heavenly Father this morning at 5:30. We are taking him home to Westfield,NC near Mt Airy for the memorial service Friday at 11 a.m. We so enjoyed our camping with you guys,have great memories,and know if there is a campground in heaven Tom is there!

I'm very sorry to hear that Tom has gone home to be with the Lord. I know he's in a better place now and will not have any more suffering.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

May the Lord rest Tom's soul now as his journey has been difficult over the past year and may the Lord bring you a peace and comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering.

He was a jewel and a real trooper. Please know that all the friends you and Tom have met along the way through our rv'ing adventures share a great loss this morning.

Love, thoughts and prayers are extended to you and your family during the days ahead.

Camilla and I are so very sorry that Tom has gone on to be with our Lord. When Camilla read it on FaceBook last night I knew that we just had to go and see you and offer our support. We are only 30 miles away so call us if we can help you with anything.

We can't add much to what Jo Ann has already said to you on the phone. I (Dave) would like to add how much fun it was being with you folks at the last three national rallies as well as the unforgettable rally at Hunting Island State Park in SC.

If traffic and the rig cooperates between home and Mt Airy, we hope to see you Friday at the service.

We'll miss Tom!

Colleen and I send our most deepest condolences for the loss of your beloved, Tom. He was a good friend to everyone and one heck of a excellent RV'er. Tom always seemed to have a handle on things.

The precious time that we spent together recently in New Bern will be forever in our memory.

May he rest in Peace.

Alice must be heartbroken without her daddy ... We feel very sad for her too.

I know there are no words that can fill the void left in you life due to Tom's passing! However I want you to know you are not alone in this lose. He will be missed by myself and all the other folks that he and you touched over the years. I am happy to have been lucky enough to have had the chance to become friends with you both! At least he is now in peace with the Lord and pain free. I am sure he will be looking after you & us from above and will always remaine close to us all in our hearts! Tom keep that campfire going till we meet once again at the Greatest Rally of them all!! Dianne I know there are a few miles between us but phones, this site & E-mail can keep us close!
