Happy birthday Lloyd Raymond Grimes. With Richie's passing, I thought about those all-night card games when we cleaned out your mother's desserts She and your father were a great part of those early years. Cheers to you.

It saddens me greatly to know of Ritchie’s (he’ll always be Ritchie for our gang) passing.  Though we did not stay connected over the years, for Ann and me, he is fondly remembered.  Ritchie was a groomsman for our wedding, and he and I were roomates for a year at Memphis State.  There were many hours — some all night — playing cards and consuming Raymond Grimes’ mother’s desserts.  There were double-dating, golf and basketball — I never could figure out his one arm, one handed jump shot.  In those early years, Ritchie’s parents embraced our gang and made us feel so welcome in their home and club.  I suspect they were largely responsible for my strongest recollection of Ritchie — his smile, laugh, and fun-guy nature.  To friends and family, you have my deepest and most sincere condolences.
