  6. Oh, Rick, I’m so sorry I’m on the other side of the globe today or I’d be there too to add to the celebration. And Mila and Angel, you called Rick’s success from the very first bars of “Silhouettes”, so I now bow down in supplication. Gary and Pam, please post later on, and please don’t leave out any details. Congratulations, Rick….and I’ll never forget your graciousness in Vegas on the opening night of previews!! You’ve got a wonderful future ahead, and I’m glad I can say “I knew him when…..”
