Neel was a member of Kansas Authors Club as I was. We began to share and he shared he knew and went to school with my Breit first cousins. He shared school memories and from then on we always shared at monthly KAC meeting. He traveled mostly by bike and always had a great respect for the environment. When he comes to mind it is always with fondness.
May he rest in divine love and light riding his bike around the heavenly realm.

I just heard of the passing of Neel. He's one of those people who was enthused and engaged with life. I think that he helped others see things differently with his zest and curiosity -- I know he did this for me. The world is a little poorer without him around, but I feel richer for having known him.

My condolences to his family,
