  1. My heartfelt sympathies to Ned’s family: mother, brothers, son, grandson, daughter-in-law and sister-in-law. I was shocked to hear of Ned’s passing. We graduated in the class of 1966 from The Thomas Jefferson High School, Fairfax County, Alexandria, VA. Both of us grew up in Lincolnia Park. His family lived on Cherokee Street which had the steepest hill, called “suicide hill” on which to sled ride. One literally had to have nerves of steel to encounter that sled ride. During the planning of our 50th Class Reunion in 2016, I had the pleasure of talking with Ned about his work as master gardener at The Elizabethan Gardens, Manteo, NC. Ned was a good person and will be missed by other classmates.
