Fr Neil I have never forgotten the outpouring of kindness you showed to me as a struggling single parent and my son while he attended and graduated from SBU. There is a special place in heaven for you. Prayers for you and your family. In Christ Jacqueline Engelhardt
Fr. Neil was president of St. Bonaventure University while I served on the National Alumni Board. He was one of the nicest, friendliest people and always had a huge smile for my visits. My husband, Bob, a non-Bona alum and I married in 1992 and Fr. Neil sent us the nicest gift set of knives. We still think about him when we use them. His dedication to the SBU community and to so many other communities was always evident in his passion for Franciscan values. He loved talking about his family, especially his niece and nephews. He was a very proud uncle. He will always be remembered. Much sympathy to all of you. We know Fr. Neil is smiling in heaven today.
