Not sure what to say?

He was a great friend of mine. We used to play pool together. He will be missed.

Dear Mary and family,
I am very sadden to hear of Neil's passing. I will always remember Neil as the young boy , full of energy and into everything, from my time living with the extended Parker family in the early 1960s. May the sadness of the present be eased by your collective joyful memories of Neil's life.
