The Herbert O'Neal Family

I am so saddened to hear of Herbert's passing. I remember him at the '59 Class Reunion last October. He seemed to enjoy it so much.
The family will be in my thoughts and prayers, and remember earth's loss is Heaven's gain.

Mr. Troy O'neal's life was one of integrity. He is a great example of what a man of God should be. I first met him in May 2002. Since then I have had the honour to hear many words of wisdom come from His heart. He really understood the word of God. He often told me that whatever you do in life, make sure you are a man of integrity. He encouraged me to reach my goals and never give up. He also had a great work ethic and passed this down to those around him. He is missed and forever remembered in our hearts. God Bless Mr. Troy.
