Rest in Peace Dr. Christensen. I was going through some of my old records and came across your
letter of regret that I was leaving the PhD program and that you offered me a job at the clinic, after
I told you I could not pass Marilyn Nippold's language course with "One sentence or less" answers.
You were kind and offered me to stay and pursue my PhD in Audiology and tag along with you since
your program could not find a Speech Science professor, the reason i attended the program there.
I thought about how kind you were and to offer me that position was grateful back in 1984. My only good experience up there was meeting you and conversing with you and to me, It was wroth the bust and the
way I was a treated by the other professors. I thank you to this day and decided to look you up and sadden
by your present relocation. You were a GOOD man and I am only glad I met you back in 1984.

Dear June,
I have just made a donation to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation in honor of Ned. The ASHFoundation awards grants to promising researchers who collaborate with speech-language pathologists or audiologists in the field, trying to make a difference in the lives of children who have communication disorders.
My best wishes to you and your family.

To the Christensen Family,
I attended the University of Oregon from 1963-1967, majoring in speech communication for my undergraduate degree and then for my masters degree in speech pathology and audiology.
During that time I had the privilege of being in many of Dr. Christensen's classes. He and Kenneth Scott Wood and Bruce Ryan were an excellent team in the Speech Pathology Department with Dr. Christensen's expertise centering in Audiology.
Dr. Christensen was always interesting and supportive--the professor you could go to for advice and direction. One summer when I was working as a counselor at a speech camp in Eastern Oregon, he visited the camp with his family and I got to meet his lovely wife, June, and his three boys of whom he was very proud. Such a kind man! In later years, I would occasionally see Dr. Christensen at sporting events in Eugene, always supporting his family members. He leaves a legacy of integrity not only to his family but also to the many students that he inspired over the years.
Love and blessings to his family.

Such a good person. Any conversation l had with him l knew it would be interesting and worthwhile. I admired his non judgement approach to issues he had to deal with. As his physician of many years l always knew the interaction would give me more than l gave him. My best to June, Merrill, and Kelly. Loren Barlow
