A silly memory...playing in the grass at Grandpas house, we had tiny plastic dinosaurs... made grass nests for them...

And Ive always enjoyed his political posts...so well written and informative.

When my late husband, Warren Kliewer, and I moved to Secaucus . . . long ago . . . we met Rich at the library: a quiet skinny kid. He's been there in all the decades since: still quiet, kind, and generous. I'll never walk through that door without thinking of him.
