    Neil and myself were friends for over 58 years, through H.S., College and onward. He introduced me to my future wife, and Mom to my kids. We did so much together in our youth. I particularly enjoyed Neil’s Grandparent’s camp in Maine. I never knew Neil to whine and yet… he, along with Joan, loved to “wine”. Always, there was time for that. In my bout with Cancer he was very supportive for me, as I was for him with his ailment a few years later. My wife and myself were so looking forward to finally seeing Neil and Joan @ Ediso Beach, SC this summer after years of COVID…. I’ll miss you so very much Neil…our Kinship.
