    To Frank and his wonderful daughter that we spent time with in Roscoe, IL at the camper: Cheri and I are so sorry for your loss. Please come back and visit us at the Northern Illinois Beagle Club and tell us stories about Neal. My brother Rick owns the home your grandmother lives in now. He was very fond of Neal. He thinks beagling must be OK if everyone is like him!
