Legends usually dont notice mere mortals

I am shocked and saddened by his loss--he was a remarkable man, generous with his time to each of us. I was always surprised that he even knew my name--legends usually don't notice mere mortals. But that didn't seem to be his nature--he was just a guy in love with our special brand of aviation, and willing to share his lifetime's wisdom with any of us.

I have a request for this group. I am the editor of Spirals, the newsletter of Texas Soaring Association, where Dick Johnson was a long-time member. I want to do something very special as a tribute to him in the newsletter. I can't think of anything better than the words of all of you that knew him, flew with him, and were touched by him. With the group's permission, I would like to collect your comments and use them as the basis of an article in the next issue. Any pictures would be most welcome, and any comments you would like to share directly with me would also be appreciated. Thanks very much. Dave White
