Fr. Don McNeill suffered a significant stroke on Saturday, August 12th. After three nights in the hospital, he moved back to his room in Holy Cross House at Notre Dame. He is currently being well cared for by the staff as well as by additional Hospice services. The extended McNeill family would like to help Fr. Don's family and friends stay informed on this site as well as share any thoughts, memories or prayers you might like to write.
Fr. Don's two brothers, Tom and Bob, and their extended families are intensely saddened by the prospect of life without him. We have been deeply blessed to have had Don play such a central role in our lives. Through his commitment to his faith, his celebration of family and his fearless and loving counsel, he has enriched our lives and helped shape our sense of who we are and how we strive to be. We will miss him dearly when he is gone. We are grateful for the immense good he has done for so many, and we are happy for everyone in heaven who will have the joy of receiving him.
