I was so sorry to hear of Neill's passing. I want to express my sincerest sympathy to Dori and her family. I have found memories of working with both Neill and Dori, and I count them among my very good friends while we all lived in Custer, SD.

So sorry, Dori and Jen, to read in today’s Chronicle about Neill’s passing. My thoughts return to the “old days” when we were young and frivolous. I remember sitting in your kitchen drinking coffee and solving the world’s problems (oh, don’t we wish!). My life was better for having the Fors family in it for a brief period.

Bill & Cindy Dortman

We worked with Neil at Kohler Co. he was quite the character. Sympathies and prayers for your family.

Kathy & Tom Kremer

Bill, Pam Gottsacker

Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
