Bro Neal was an absolute great man , great musician, leader,teacher,mentor, when I was a young man just starting out to play the drums, he not only showed me how to be a good musician , but that the things he was showing me also went along as life lessons in which I have looked back on several times in my life and seen how they helped me make good decisions...He will always have a special place in my heart and my life...His common greeting "Hey Bro" will always be in my ears and my heart as well

I remember Neal's sense of humor wnd his musical talent more than anything. He was always making me smile, with the country slang he would use just being silly. It's such a fond memory I have from growing up in our church. And his musical ability, WOW ! I envy those who can read and play music, but he blew me away more than once by just holding up fingers to signal other musicians as to which chord to play next ! I had never seen anyone do that before, but you could always learn something from Neal Hill if you paid attention. What a treasure we had in him, and what a blessing he was and continues to be to so many. He is sadly missed !
