"I saw Dickie Knight shortly before he passed away.  He was on a scooter with an oxygen bottle.
I didn’t know him at first.  He said he had a very hard life. He said it was all his fault though.
Dickie was always a sweet guy to me in school. He refreshed my memory on a lot of things
that happened in school.  We had a wonderful visit. I am not sure whether he died from lung
cancer or his heart gave out."
