Subject: RE: Obit: Tex Koenig's Passing (1999)
I met this man many years ago, and was reminded of him by someone today. He made a strong impression on me, and through time I came to hear that he was also appeared in films, later I heard he passed away.We met numerous times but only spoke at length maybe twice,in a setting that promoted skepticism and I was skeptical. There is also a tendency to look back at the past with rose-colored glasses, but I don't think i'm doing that. I have learned other things about him and now realize his unguardedness and good nature was authentic. I honestly think he brought the good out in people, that he influenced me in a way that I only come to understand now.For anyone else that knew him or remembers him I join you in remembering him with a true sense of appreciation.
