    My deep condolences to Neil’s family and to all who will miss having him here, with us. I recall our time coaching youth sports together fondly, his knowledge of the game was deeper than mine and his passion for sports and for his children, was clear.

    Warm thoughts to Alex, Marjorie and Mindy.
