Celebrating the life of Charles Lincoln Neal, Sr.
Thank you for signing Charles Lincoln Neal, Sr.'s Guestbook
I was so lucky to live beside Lincoln, Fannie Nell, Charles and Teresa until I was 9 years old. We shared our backyards together as neighbors do - cookouts, picnics, badminton, croquet, riding bikes, sharing pets, climbing trees, car rides, vacations, running barefoot to each others houses, sharing glasses of sweet ice tea. There was no better father, husband, protector, friend, or neighbor than Lincoln. You have a special place in my heart Lincoln, I will miss you! I love you all. Perfect Memories, Love and Prayers, Marsha Simmons

Our love and prayers to the Neal family in the loss of Mr. Lincoln. We will certainly miss him on the second Thursday evening of each month. He was an amazing man who dealt with his handicap in recent years with real grace.
