There are too many wonderful memories for a truly wonderful man. You were a very special friend to my husband, and I know you considered him a brother! He felt the same way. I can still remember the "good old day" with your big smile sitting in your offices at Rich's and Hill's, the shows in Chicago, our dinners together with Patty and Tommy, our wedding, Jennifer's wedding, your frequent phone calls to see how we were doing, etc. May you now Rest In Peace, and enjoy that stool next to your good friend! You will be missed! Elaine
