People ask me all the time, “How do you do what you do every day?” I always respond the same way, “It’s my ministry, it’s what God has planned for my life.” Growing up in a home with a religious background, evangelists would often tell me, that when I grew up I was going to be a preacher. I never understood why they would say such a thing, it never felt that way to me. My passion lead me in a direction that was not in a church but instead toward a funeral home.

As a child I lost a very close loved one, my great grandmother Gilchrest. This loss impacted me deeply  directed us in what we were supposed to do. I was so curious about this man’s job that I started asking questions. At that time, there was no such thing as the internet, so when we left, I went to the city library to find my answers. During my research, I developed a great fascination for the funeral industry. In the eighth grade, I was asked to write a career paper. Because I had already done most of the research, and having this fascination with the funeral industry, I wrote my paper on becoming a funeral director. This solidified the foundation for the direction my life would soon take. I didn’t know how I was going to get there, but I knew that I wanted to be a funeral director and to take care of people.

After high school, I joined the Marine Corp. and used my GI Bill to attend funeral directing school. Subsequently, I went to work for a few funeral homes in Boston, Massachusetts and the Houston area. While in these funeral homes I learned what it meant to be in the funeral industry, and it became very evident that I had a greater sense of compassion for those that were hurting. I needed to build my own funeral home, to ensure that I could give people the kind of care they deserve. At age twenty five, I went into construction with one bulldozer. After several years and with the success of my excavation company; I was then able to transform my dream of owning a funeral home into a reality and fulfill my passion to care for people. When I turned 35, I reached my goal and broke ground on 200 S. Washington, Cleveland Texas. After building and operating Neal Funeral Home, I then realized that the evangelists from my past were not mistaken. Neal Funeral Home is my ministry, and I am often asked to preach for the loss of loved ones.

It is such an honor when families entrust us with their precious loved ones. I am filled with gratitude for the life and calling that God has given me. I share with each family I meet, that without a relationship with God and an understanding of the one that gave us life, it’s impossible to withstand the loss of losing a life. God has given me a gift to love hurting people. He uses me to wrap his arms around each hurting family, to love them as he loves.
