Leo Neal Jr. always had a story to tell. That often brought smiles to those around him. About 650 people attended a candlelight vigil at Post Falls High School on Wednesday night to remember the 17-year-old who was killed during a high-speed crash north of Post Falls on Monday night. "He was definitely a storyteller," said junior Taegan Williams, president of the Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA), a business and marketing club of which Neal was also a member. "He brought smiles to everyone's faces and always had a lending ear. He really was just one in a million"/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
