    Neal, we just heard about the death of your sweet mom, Doe. We enjoyed so much playing Bunko with her at LPV in Southaven. She was so cute and funny and loved her hugs as much as we did. We enjoyed having you at our table on occasion too. We have missed her since we have not been able to visit. In June we lost our youngest son, Jeff Newton, and you can view his obituary at Twin Oaks as well. Our sincere sympathy to you and your family. George and Barb Pollard.
