Departed ~ 6/14/19

It is with a very heavy heart that my family and I say good bye to my brother Neal Waidelich class of 1971.

He had the best time at the last 2 reunions. I want to thank his friends that shared his past memories in Thailand and created many new memories for him.  He had a big heart and would do anything for anyone.
