I was a classmate of Neil's and Elaine's and, except for a couple of class reunions, haven't seen either since 1960. I always think of them together. Neil was one of the first of our classmates to have a car, which was a big deal back then. I remember his smile even now and how kind he always was. I went to Asbury Methodist Church back then and think Neil went there too - but it has been a long time, so I'm not sure. What a gift for a couple who fell in love at such a young age to share so many happy years and experiences together. We don't get to be this age without experiencing loss that knocks us for a loop. We never get over missing someone we love but we are always glad for the time we had with them. There is such sadness when a person such as Neil passes and leaves a big hole in our lives but it does help for those who loved him too to share stories. Eventually the knot in your stomach goes away and the weight on your chest lifts, but you just have to experience it a second at a time. Even though I haven't seen Neil and Elaine for so many years, he was such a good person that I, too, feel a sense of loss.

We were so saddened to hear of Neil's passing! We have many fond memories of his smile and good humor. He was such a positive and sweet spirit. His strength and fighting spirit was an inspiration. Elaine, you will be in our prayers! Sending love and hugs.

Elaine-
I just read the newspaper and learned of Neil's passing and wanted you to know that I was thinking of you. It has been a long time since junior high and high school days, but memories of you both are still with me. We live in Edmond now and hopefully will see you if we ever get around to another reunion.
Sincerely,
Nancy Bell Abel Krodel

Pops taught me so many things, most of them just by his wonderful example. He showed me the importance of starting your day off right, the importance of routine. I’ll always remember memories of him sitting at the dining room table, early morning sun streaming in, as he played solitaire and sipped his hot coffee. If I ever made it up that early, he’d always greet me with a “Hey, buddy,” and let me watch him play. He let me work, and trusted me with machinery I was probably too young to operate, but he watched closely and let me try. I always felt so trusted with him. He made me feel loved and cared for, but also helped me realize I could do so much more than I thought I could. Pops worked so hard, for so long, and I never once heard him complain. He loved what he did, and he loved the people he got to come home to. Family always came first for him, and he showed it in every single thing he did. I hope to live a life as full and richly as he lived, and as full of family, love, ski trips, go carts, four wheelers, steak dinners, quiet mornings, and purpose as his was. I love you, Pops. Thank you for being a wonderful, wonderful grandpa. Miss you.

I'll always remember the ski trips we would take together each year. I counted down the days till spring break when we could climb in the van with Grammy and Pops. Pops was incredibly patient with the roudy crew of grandkids in the van. I remember when he built Bonderosa in Colorado and I was amazed. That was the biggest example of what I remember him for. Creating a place for family to come together. He was always supportive, loving, and made me feel like I could do anything.
