This is a portion of the official letter (translated from French) that was emailed to Carol on the day of Neal’s memorial service:

June 13, 2018

Dear Mama Carol,

We pray this message finds you in good health.

We the members of the Lama Language Association, as well as the translators, literacy staff, and representatives of the Lama language come in the name of the Lama community to offer you our sincere condolences at God’s calling Papa Neal, a father to all of us, home. Thanks to him, and with you at his side, the Lama language is now listed among the written languages of the world. In doing this you have spread the Word of Life among the Lama people—our proud heritage. Yes, Papa has been for us a true light toward creating a written language, a true support technically and financially for the success of the project. What a great spirit of sharing and love of neighbor! The entire Lamba population will be forever thankful to him. The Lamba will always remember him.

We hoped he would be with us at the dedication of the entire Bible in Lama [around 2021], but alas, God decided otherwise. May Papa Neal rest in peace and may the Lord acknowledge his good works.
