For those Sitnews readers that didn't have the pleasure of meeting and/or corresponding with Dick, I'd like to tell you that he was an unfailingly gracious and conscientious person (I think everyone around here will tell you that). I know that Dick Kauffman had many other fine qualities as well, and it saddens me that we've lost such a fine person.

What should be obvious to everyone who reads Sitnews is that Dick left us with a powerful tool for communication and a beautiful legacy -- this website -- and for that, we should all be very thankful.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to you, Dick, for what you gave us. Job well done.
