I'll always remember those evenings we shared over classical movies, and regret those we didn't get around to viewing. Bob

I played bridge with Clyde every Tuesday for about 12 years. He was a very warm, caring person and I shall miss him a lot. I regret not getting a chance to tell him goodbye. vme-farris

You were a kind friend to me for many years--a man of culture, wit and tremendous education. I will keep the image of you at the piano in my mind, because you will never be forgotten. Rest well and in good company, dear friend.
