I would like to extend my condolences to the Shealy family on the loss of Neva. We were classmates and friends at New Washington High School.

Our condolences to the family. I have many fond childhood memories of Aunt Neva and Uncle Ivan during Christmas eve and the summer street fair. We are sorry we could not make it to the funeral today. All our love, Gale and Eric Hamman

Mike and David:
My condolences to both of you for the loss of your Mom. Sounds corny, but I could visualize your Dad greeting her with a hug and a kiss.
Though both your parents are not with us now, you still have family you can be connected to, if you wish. All you have to do is reach out.

John and Jodi Shealy
