  9. Dear Cathy, Joseph and extended family. Just a note to say how sorry I am to hear this very sad news. We truly can’t believe it. My first meeting with Neil was at Ashton’s nightclub where Cathy pointed out this young 17 year old guy who became her partner in life. They really grew up together and had so many friends and good times. They were a big part of the Irish community. As hard of a day it will be, I will think of you from so far away and pray you have strength going forward. We are all here for you through good and bad. You are always welcome in Texas and it’s not long till I will see you again. Our thoughts will be with you tomorrow. You are surrounded by love and support.
