Neal, Haleigh Ann  
On Saturday, June 20, 2015, our beautiful Haleigh Ann Neal left this earth to join her grandmother, Virginia Neal, and grandfather, Bernard Jacob, and became part of the heavens. We feel her presence now in the sunsets and the starlight of her vast New Mexico sky and feel her nourishing us in the rain she loved. Haleigh, the first sister in a fiercely close family, was born on February 28, 1996 at 1:01 p.m. to be followed at 1:02 p.m. that same day by her sister Megan Marie, and two years later by her baby sister, Sydney Jordan, to her adoring parents Chris and Kathi Neal of La Luz. She loved her family more than anything and had no patience for fakeness. Our unselfish Haleigh was caring and loyal to her family and friends. She was always there for others, offering laughter and warmth even in moments when she might be at her lowest. Her Zen-like, peaceful soul and fun loving nature gave us immeasurable comfort and light. Haleigh was a talented writer and artist who adored her animals. Now we'll feel her words and see her drawings in the desert and mountains she loved to hike, feel her presence along with the animals who walk this world with us. Though there is a little less light in the world now, Haleigh never has to grow up. She will forever remain a teenager. Aside from those already mentioned, Haleigh is survived by her grandfather, James Neal, of La Luz; her grandmother Marie Jacob of Colorado; her aunts Darlin Neal of Florida and Sue Jacob of Colorado; her uncles Jamie, David and Joey Neal of New Mexico and John Jacob of Colorado; loving extended family Josh Storm, Christian Gardin of La Luz; and numerous cousins. Cremation has already taken place at PCS. A celebration of Haleigh's life will be celebrated at a later time. The Neal family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to handle the arrangements. To sign the online register book, please visit www.alamogordofuneralhome.org

World War II Veteran On June 8, 2015, the Lord rosined up his bow and called home his best fiddle player, Orvel M. Powell. Born in Scott County, Arkansas, Orvel aimed to be the best fiddle player in the country until Uncle Sam needed his services during World War II. After serving his country with honor in the 566th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion as a radar crewman, Orvel met and married his wife Eva in Portales, New Mexico. Following a honeymoon in California, they moved back to New Mexico where they spent their remaining years. Orvel retired from Holloman Air Force Base as a warehouse foreman. He and Eva were foster parents to 63 children, volunteered in their community and loved their church. Orvel had a great sense of humor and loved a good story. Orvel always had a peppermint in his pocket and used them to get a smile or his favorite - free coffee. Orvel died in the Veteran's Home in Truth or Consequences with a big smile and exclaimed, "I'm goin' home! I'm goin' home! I'm goin' home!"
