Will never forget your wit, big heart and your taking me in as a member of the Sunset family. Thank you for being such a kind, generous, interesting friend/landlord/bartender to me. You were sometimes somewhat of a man of mystery, which added to your flair. Believe me, your legend will live on. Much love, Barbara
