So sorry to hear of Mr. Neu's passing. There is a saying that I find comforting, "If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever." Peace.

We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Swanee. He always made me laugh and I always picture him in his crazy pants at the SC games. Our thoughts are with you all!

My thoughts and prayers are with you….Many of my childhood memories include time spent at The Neu’s home at 4343 Chevy Chase Drive. It was my home away from home and I was fortunate enough to have a second set of parents, Swanne and Gene. Since I spent so much time at their house, I reaped the benefit of getting scolded, as the forefinger shook, the other hand placed on his hip of his brightly colored whale pants and his head shaking back and forth in dismay of what Jodi and I had once again..concocted. I also remember very well receiving Mr. Neu’s warm welcome, with a twinkle in his eye, a broad smile on his face as he nodded with his deep voice saying “Well hello Tor’s good to see you again.” A BIG smile came across my face when I thought of how he would replicate a greeting exchange that Jodi and I would share, Mr. Neu seated at the head of the formal dining table, holding up his two first fingers in the air and bending them back and forth while saying “Hello Frentlin…or Hello Fongst ”. (Two endearing names that Jodi, Kirk, Eric and friends used for each other.) Thank you Mr. Neu for all the fond memories.Love you and rest in peace,Tors
