Sorry we never had the chance to go fishing together, Rich. But I’ll be tossing a few lines in your honor this spring/summer when the waters warm up & the green returns to the outdoor spaces you cherished. Thanks for sharing pics of your trophy catches and that vid of you on your adored boat, reeling in that monster striped bass on the Pack. Impressive! It has been an honor sharing space with you on the 7th floor of the NYP hospital recently. It was not the best of times for either of us but I never once heard you complain. I especially enjoyed experiencing the totally-bonded love between you & Renee in those tough times. The looks you gave her were amazing to witness. I will never forget them. Nor the way you would relax whenever she held your hand. And now, I get to move forward with a new heart made even stronger from the privilege of seeing your grace during your extremely trying times. And you get to rest. Tight lines, friend.
