When I moved to da 'hood back in 1998, the first person I met was Muriel, followed shortly after by her hubby Mr. T.
For some reason I could never call him by his first name.
Anyway, I am sad to say that Mr. T. passed away on January 31.
I am really going to miss seeing him on the street. He and Muriel have been married since forever, and you know he used to wash her car every sunny weekend and flirt like mad with anyone who got within 10 feet of him.
He used to go out on the town with Muriel in a suit he'd had since about 1968, all checks and shiny leather shoes. A real old school dude.
It would have been so nice to have had one last smile & wave from him.
