    Our deepest sympathy to Melanie Neill and family on the recent passing of her father, Mr. David Neill. Mr. Neill passed away on Friday, August 27, 2010. A private family gathering to honor Mr. Neill’s life was held at Melanie’s home on September 4.

    This is what Melanie shared about her Dad: “David Neill age 68 — we were blessed to have him as a father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He will be missed more than we thought and more than anyone will know. Now he is up in heaven with Mom, doing his wood working and eating steak.”

    Melanie is a test examiner on the North campus.
