Dear Ethel and the extended families of the late Neil Blizzard and also Mirada Shaddick;
I have recently be notified of Neil's passing, one of our SJVS former grads. While reading his obituary I also learned of the passing of your granddaughter, (daughter, sister) Miranda. On behalf of the executive and membership of Saint John Vocational School Alumni Association, please accept our most sincere sympathy in their passings. Some of our members still reminisce of when Neil came home to New Brunswick, with his band, for our first big reunion in 1985. Our thoughts and prayers for strength and comfort are with you as you struggle through this most difficult path on the road of life. May time heal the pain but never dull the wonderful memories you have all shared together over a lifetime.
Sincere Sympathy;
Louise Jonah-Craine ('62) Alumni Liaison

I am so sorry of your loss Ethel as you and Neil were one of my favourite memories, like in Watertown N. Y. when we got together and partied! Mother was your good friend at the base, and I hear Neil was one of the best Sax Players around, as well as a nice guy!

My Condolences, Danny W Kemp
