Friends: if you are reading this then the last golden thread in the tapestry of my life had been sewn. I was a father to two children Mona(Quigley)(Kevin) and Douglas Neumann (Janis(. Between the two of them they gave me five grandchildren. I would like to thank them and the many friends who walked this journey called life with me. Some of you walked a short ways and some much longer but each of you added your own unique color to my tapestry making it bright, colorful and full of depth. Thanks for the joy, the tears, the love and most of all the laughter. I learned much about living from you all. A special thank you goes to the most outstanding man I had the good fortune to meet and he befriended me, Mere words cannot convey how I value and love you Glen Douglas for who you are and who you helped me become. Thank you to your mate (Lesley) for the many pots of soup, cups of tea and compassionate conversation. Last, but not least my mate of 22 years (Agda). I thank her for teaching me how to live comfortably in my own skin, in our partnership. And Glen the rocks will be hot when you get there and the sound of your gratitude song will be your guide.
There will be no service of any description at my request…All My Relations John.
