I regret I was unable to attend Ned's funeral. While at BayWoods only a short time,I got to know Ned and Irma and found them to be warmhearted ,congenialland interesting companions. It didn't take long to see why those who knew them loved them.

I remember Ned when he lived in Heritage Harbour. He was always pleasant and willing to help; residents saw him as a very nice person. As I recall he helped our sound committee on occasion. His technical credentials were outstanding with employment and leadership at MITRE, and an MIT engineering degree. My sympathy to Irma and the Spencer family.
