Richard Durrett Memorial Fund
First of all, thank you for the overwhelming number of e-mails, text messages and Twitter tweets in regards to Richard Durrett. The response is overwhelming but not unexpected because of who he is. Difficult to respond individually to everybody. Another day and another game.
But Jeff Wilson and I and many many of Richard’s friends are eternally grateful for the kind words.
There isn’t really much to say. The memorial fund information from the Rangers is below. All I can think of are the immortal words of Daniel Patrick Moynihan from 50 years ago.
“Yes we will smile again, But we will never be young again.”
