Nileen and I were in the orchestra together from Daniels through Broughton.  We spent many hours together, since we gathered with the band and orchestra kids at lunch in the band room.  She was extremely intelligent and artistically talented, and I cannot picture her without a smile on her face.  This is a terrible loss.

Neileen was extraordinary, but over the years I never knew she lived in Memphis as I do.  Guess we just never talked about where we had lived.  She'll be missed for sure.  Jim Clark
