To the family of Dick Mezzio,
I was so sorry to learn of his passing today. Elsie, what a wonderful man Dick was. I remember going to Vegas with your guys and he was the life of the party. Every time I went into Stogies he put a huge smile on his constantly friendly face. He will, I am confident, live on in all of your hearts.

Condolences to Dick's family ... he will be missed by many. As a 50+ year friend I've always
enjoyed our "annual visits," "family updates", etc. especially the "car talks" (his 1957 Ford in
particular !!). I could always count on a smile and a friendly hello from Dick. RIP old friend !!
