Hello Paula & Mark:
I only found out about Ned's graduation on Friday (the 23rd) before going up to Dallas with family. Ned was always one of my favorite leaders in the BSF Central class, along with Mark, who joined the leadership 1 week before me. His humor & personality was a Divine Gift from God to all who knew him. I already miss him, and am sure that the banquet heaven has prepared for him will likely go on for weeks! I am truly blessed to have know him,you, and Mark all these years. We will all see him again... and FOREVER!
My thoughts & prayers are with you and your family at this time.

Ned was such a blessing to the College of Biblical Studies. As the Academic Dean, I served with him in many board meetings and his wisdom will be sincerely missed. Our prayers go out to the family during their time of loss. Thankfully, since Ned trusted in Jesus Christ as His personal Savior, I look forward to being reunited with him in heaven some day.
