This website is dedicated to my father
Neil W. Blaylock Jr.
who was killed in an auto accident on October 27, 1998.
My father was the
smartest man I've ever known and his impact on this world was
felt far and wide. His passing was not only a loss for
my family, but for hundreds and hundreds of friends and coworkers
