Ned reminded me of my dad, which is the highest compliment I could ever bestow. He was a scientist, but also a creator of comedy and satire through his skits and vignettes...often performed at UU "Cabarets" and canvas kick-offs over the years. "Liberella" should continue to be revived every few years as a true UU classic! Thanks for the memories, Ned! Maureen Minn Tucker (the original Liberella)

Katie, Thank you for the record of the many accomplishments and activities that Ned was involved with over the years. I knew only of the extraordinary work that you both accomplished for the Delaware Academy of Science and the Iron Hill Museum. Thank you for lives well lived. Jim Neal

Dear, sweet Katie, You've been in my thoughts daily since Ned's passing. Your relationship with him has been one that I and many others have looked at for inspiration for our own relationships. Such sweetness and caring. May your many memories with him bring you peace in the days to come. Love, Susie

I have fond memories of Ned as a boating friend of my brother and his family, but mostly I remember his support of the Newark Cooperative Preschool. As Treasurer of the church where the school was renting classroom space, Ned's support of our educational program translated to very reasonable rent. It brightened my day when Ned and Katie were in the building and the preschoolers and I could say "good morning" to them. We were always welcomed with a cheery "good morning" and birght smile. I pray wonderful memories will give Katie and the family comfort at this sad time.

Ned was an important, active and respected member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark. He also was a scientist and a teacher and a member of "The Greatest Generation". He spoke to my students at Tatnall School as recently as 3 years ago, and they have never forgotten him or his stories of Los Alamos, Dick Feynmann and The Manhattan Project. An amazing man.
