As I remember, Neal was hit by a car while attending Harvard during his early years there. We live not to far from Harvard and when giving any family or friends there a tour I'll always mention Neal and what a great student and person he was.  He was destined for great things and it was a shame his life was cut so short.

Nicky Wasserman was such a nice kid.  I loved dancing with him at Bar/Bat Mitzvahs.  He died so

young and had such a promising future,  What a loss!

Nicky, the perennial valedictorian of our class, was always kind to me and used that amazing intellect of his to kindly, gently, clearly explained various concepts in math class that I had a difficult time comprehending. His life was tragically cut short in a bicycle accident while at college, and, as a weekend  cyclist, I always think about him when get on my bike and ride the wine-country backroads of Sonoma county. I feel his spirit keeps me safe. Thank you, Nicky, for so many things. Rest well...  Michael K.

Nicky was at MIT when he was hit by that bike.  I think of that accident whenever I'm in Cambridge.  I remember hearing about it during my junior year at Cornell.  Nick was so bright and funny.  I always remember him teasing me in the lunchroom, it seems like every day!   I'll also always remember him and his brother Ken with I think some others singing "Heart of My Heart" in Latin for some school assembly.  "Cor, cordis me; quant amo cantalum, amo cantalum.  Cor, cordis me, fecit retrospectum.  Dum iuvenes, in viae angulo......" that's all I remember.. god knows how!   I remember meeting him and Lynne Abern for lunch downtown the summer of 1967 when Lynne was working for the Sun Times and I was working for the American across the street.  I remember thinking at the time that he and I had changed in similar ways during college....  such a loss.  I do remember visitng his mom some years after he had died; she was happy to remember.  She had moved to Lake Point Towers, I   think.  DK what happened to Ken, I'm afraid.

I didn't know Nicky very well but it was very sad when he died so young and all of his talent lost to,the world.i spoke to Stan beiser recently and he told me that Nicky has a nephew named nick who is a doctor.i am sure he is as. nice and kind as his uncle.nicky has truly been missed by all of us.his sudden death I think made all of us realize how vulnerable we are and life is too short.
