David, I have only been to Long Island once, believe it or not to visit a waiter Judy and I met at Patsy's in tha city. We hit it off and invited us to his home on Long Island, beautiful place! waitin tables sometimes pays off better'n ya think. I have a grand dotter at Cornell, and she has her aunt, my daughter the general manager uv tha Marriott to lean on support from family. My lady an I love Ithaca and tha fanger lake area. I wuz a bad poker player, never had enuff money to be in a big bad game, but I did have a good stick at Breezy's, spent more time there than in school. Turns out I was deslecksick, so I didn't learn like other people, but found out other people didn't learn like me, it worked out, Judy and I built a succesful business, sold it after 35 years and traveled the world for 12 years before I lost her in'17. Tha Tumbleweed description you used to describe yourself iz classic. You seemed to Tumble into a classic, fantastic life, way to go, jus sayin, Rex

Gene, I didn’t run around with you, but I remember you from when “Rosie and Tha Fox “ would throw the baseball players in the off seaso to you wrestlers to beat up on, wuz glad you wuz biggern me, so I could keep away. Apparently you’ve had a helluva run. I lost my wife 2/12 years ago and quite frankly I’ll be glad to be with her agin. You are handling the coming end (beginning) we will all face with courage and class. I’m happy for the life you’ve lived and glad you never used me for bait in wrestling, I pray for your continued peace and admire your class, an ole Roper, be seein ya ina short while, say hi to my baby, Judy when you arrive, smooth sailin and flolowing winds, jus sayin, Rex
