My condolences to the family. I had the honor of becoming acquainted with Mr. Puzzo in February of this year. We would spend time on his visits discussion his days of glory. He shared a few coined acronyms with me, he would also discuss with me the history of some of the actors/actresses in the movies he watch. During my last visit with him he told me of his work with the Monopoly game in specific the Star Trek series because he knew I love the original Star Trek series. May you walk on sandy beaches and dance the Lindy.

My sympathy to all his family.
