Vaya con dios

 I got word today that my friend Darryl passed away yesterday. Ron Munn told me. 

I'm not sure what happened and it doesn't really matter too much at this point. He's gone.

But the guy was a long time antique dealer and picker and he made us a lot of money over the years. 

He found me a nice Kleitsch once and a really nice Sydney Laurence. 

Always left something on the table for the other guy, never tried to get too fat.

I have known him as long as I have been in the business. He was a familiar face at places like Long Beach and the Rose Bowl for decades.

He didn't have an enemy in the world. Nicest guy you could ever meet. Fair as hell.

I don't know all that much about him but I do know that he was a carpenter, from Solana Beach originally and was dedicated to sobriety.

We are going to miss you Darryl. Thanks for everything. You were a prince.

Hard to lose a guy like that as there are so few of them left that you can use as a beacon
