  • I was truly surprised to learn of Neil’s passing. I have always looked forward to seeing both of you at the Alumni Banquet each year, so know you will always be welcome. He will be missed. I remember that Neil was a much better football player than I was. Also both of us struggled in reading in elementary school. My prayers will go with you and your family during this most difficult time.
