Thank you for helping me all of these years Billy. How you did it with no luxuries of today like cell phones and laptops was truly amazing.

I will miss our long car rides from Dodgertown to everywhere in Florida and back in the 7th inning to make sure the clubbies could get the laundry started early. Figuring out I-95 and the turnpike before I-95 went all of the way through, like it does today, was more fun with the company of you and Herbie Scharfman. Of course you and Herbie just slept the whole ride while I drove..haha!

Rest in peace my friend…
