So sorry to hear of Dick's passing. Such a kind and gentle person. Never said a bad thing about anyone. He was always quick with a smile and a wave as he was going into the Avenue Bar and I was parking my car across the street. Hell, he even threw me a $5 tip one day as he got off my bus! I told him I was putting it into my meter to help the other passengers who run short with cash on the East Side! He smiled and said, "ok". A good guy gone too soon.
