Condolence from Brian, Pauline and family on December 16th, 2019 12:37 PM

Our sincere condolences to Bev and all of Neil’s extended family in Canada and in England.
Although we had not seen Neil for a while, we always looked forward to Bev and Neil’s visits to us in Dorset over the years, where we shared many a laugh and stories of our family’s history growing up as children in Slough .
We will always remember my cousin Neil for his smile, laugh and good humor.
Were it not for the miles between us, we would have liked to have attended the Celebration of his Life at some future date, but please know, that our thoughts and prayers will be with you at that time.
Brian, Pauline, Kimberly and Debbie

Farewell big brother. To me you’ll always be the one that played chase with me in the garden, took me apple scrumping (shhhh) and for wild drives down Seven Hills Road. What brilliant fun! How fortunate to have a brother like that. How sad to have lost you so soon; too soon I’ll miss you as will Rhian and Amy and Jerry. Our thoughts and love are with Bev, Becky and Paul and your many family members and friends who will be missing you too.

To the one and only my dearest brother Neil.
We love and we sadly miss you.
All my life you made me feel safe and protected, you were a great brother to grow up with.
Thank you Bev, Becca and Paul, for your love and steadfast support in Neil’s valiant fight. My thoughts are with you.
I shall be looking up into the night skies to see a new bright star.
Rest in peace my love.
Till we meet again.
You are in our hearts.
Love always Tina and Ken

Dear Bev & Family
Returning home from Kingston 12/30, coming down the road ….I thought I better drop in on Neil and Bev, but thought better to stop in the New Year.
My sincere condolences to you all at this difficult time. We’ve enjoyed visits with the Dixons over the short time we have know them. Neil was a kind and friendly gentleman and enjoyed the farm location and making improvements to the farmstead.
Our sympathy, Bob and Joanne Simpson
ps- Please call on us anytime Bev, we’re just down the road.
