To Neil’s family and friends,

I was very close to him. He was very influential in helping me down this treacherous path we call life. I miss him everyday. We had planed on visiting New York City when the pandemic ended.

My condolences to Neil’s entire family. He was one of the good ones.

With sympathy,

Monica Dornfeld

I always appreciated Neil's sense of humor and smile. I never heard an unkind word out of him. He had so many interests, and so do I... I always considered him a kindred spirit. Last time I saw him was Thanksgiving, and we had a really nice and interesting conversation, as we always did. He must have been a fantastic uncle. Even though I never met any of you, my heart is with the whole Collins family.
