God bless Dick Tagg! He was a total love: a good-natured, easy-going, yet simultaneously non-nonsense, get-it-done, thoughtful, supportive, and fun human being, an asset to his community and a credit to humanity. He will be missed! But what a fantastic legacy he left, to inspire us to be the best we can be. Rest in peace, Dick! Minnie must be thrilled to be reunited with you. :-)
