On my brothers passing I had so much sorrow. We spent much time together at the VFW home and in business. Our first business was a gas station in Kalamzoo in 1957. At the VFW Home, Neal was 9 and I was 6 - Neal was going to pin the poppy on the President (Rosevelt) Mike Vanloon gave him a haircut, shaved his head. Neal's cloths fit me so I took his place. When I caused so much trouble they

So sorry to hear of Neal passing away. Our deepest sympathy to the entire Witherow family at this difficult time. He, along with Carol, were true friends with my parents for over forty years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. The city of Buchanan will surely miss Neal Witherow.

I knew Neal almost his entire business life & have always had the greatest respect for his no-nonsense approach to things & his soft & caring heart which he tried to hide with a brusk exterior.
Neal was a friend, customer & partner for a long time in a business in Arizona. I will miss you in all of those relationships.
Tom, you are the only child I knew well. May God's peace comfort you.
Neal, I will catch up with you in heaven.

Two years ago I told you to retire and enjoy your life, that you should should have retired ten, fifteen years ago. I know why you didn't, you loved to work and your work allowed you
