Neil will be remembered for his great stories and amazing ability to make people smile. Following is a note from a young Neil (Age 12) in 1949. “What goal do I have set up for myself?”
“I have not decided definitely what my own goal in life really is. I do however want to have a full and satisfying life, as well as a useful one. Therefore, meanwhile I intend to prepare myself through higher education to obtain a well-balanced, happy, profitable, future. That through the knowledge I gain, I will understand and be sympathetic in my relationships to all people. That as a good citizen and in establishing a home and family of my own, I will in a small way do my share to make this complex, modern, world we live in, a bit less complex.”
Dad you accomplished this and so much more. You touched everyone’s life you met in a unique way and left those you met feeling blessed to have crossed your path.
