Ralph Neal Memorial

May 7th. This is the day I’ve been dreading since I was a child. Pawpaw went to be with the Lord. It’s hard to believe this is real, cause Pawpaws are supposed to live forever! However, this was Gods will for us and I’m going to honor him by having him cremated and taking him to West Virginia to be with his family.

These past several years have been so taxing and full of ups and downs with his declining health. So many times he would drive me crazy but I would do it 10x over and it still wouldn’t amount to how much love he’s shown me and those he loves during his life.

The greatest summers of my life were always riding up to West Virginia in his truck, listening to Merle Haggard and George Jones, eating a happy meal.

This has been such a humbling time. Just like my Pawpaw was stubborn and refuses help from anyone, so am I...
 Swallowing my pride, I ask for any help that anyone wants to contribute so that I can give this man our last road trip to the mountains.

I thank you ALL for the love and support you have shown me through this time. Your words mean the world.
