Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

        • US Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

        • CA Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine




DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

This Policy covers the Site in part and as a whole. However, it does not apply to entities that Company does not own or control, including without limitation, Campaign, advertisers or developers of content. Company may include third-party links on the Site. These third-party sites are governed by their own privacy policies and NOT this Policy.

Please check the privacy policy of any third-party site you interact with on or off the Site.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

    Company shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or has been authorized. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Company shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.

Company will also use the information to measure and improve the Site, and to provide you with customer support.

Company may contact you with new or updated products or services, designs, routes, surveys, or other related announcements from time to time. You may opt-out of all communications except essential updates. Company may include Content in the e-mails sent to you.

Certain software applications and applets transmit data to Company.

Company will not tell the advertiser who you are as part of this process. When you interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that you may receive a cookie from the advertiser.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response. This may include requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States if Company has a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, is applicable to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. It is Company’s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore, Company restricts the Site and all other provided services to persons 18 years or older.

Leonard Uriah Kaplan, of Baltimore, Maryland passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Saturday, November 12th, 2022 at the age of 85.

Beloved husband to Gail Kaplan (nee Shavitz), devoted father to Jeffrey (Julie Burman), Laurie Freeman, Amy Kaplan (Erik Selz), cherished Poppi to Emily, Jackson, Carli, Rachael, Eli and Avery, loving brother to Judith (Dennis) Brodkin.

Lenny was born in Jackson Heights, New York. He attended Bryant High School and is a graduate of the University of Alabama where he was a proud walk-on to the Crimson Tide basketball team from 1955-1959. Along with his wife Gail, he followed in Leon’s footsteps with the Pimlico Hotel and continued his love of the restaurant business with Restaurant 3900, The Owl Bar, John Eager Howard Room, The 13th Floor, The Other Place, The Polo Grill, Lenny’s Chophouse, and The Classic Catering People. He served on the boards of The Park School and The National Restaurant Association.

Opera, basketball, cards, steamed crabs, coaching, and Rehoboth were a few of his passions, but nothing gave him greater joy than his family.

The family would like to thank the community for their ongoing love and support

Dear Gail and Family ,
I am so sorry to hear about Lenny’s passing.
Where do I begin to share the fond memories I have shared with your family. On my first date with Jerry Vogel I was trying to study for my state board of nursing license in Rehobeth beach, not much studying was done , thankfully I passed the exam. The fun part was spending time with the both of you. Even on my honeymoon voyage to Nantucket you and Lenny came to the boat in East Hampton with the best caviar and champagne. I will never forget our basketball reunions and eating at Joe’s Stone crabs. I hope your fond memories of Lenny get you through this most difficult time . All my love to you and your family. May he Rest In Peace. But you and I both know he is playing basketball with Jerry .

Gail I hope this story puts a smile on your face:

My favorite story about Lenny and Gail comes from a story he shared with me:
On a trip to NYC they had Lunch at the Union Square Café, a restaurant that I used to kid him about based on their smoking policy.
After getting seated they asked to talk to the owner, Danny Meyer. He eventually showed up and Lenny introduced themselves to him thinking that they could have a nice chat about work a day things. Danny was not interested and gave them the brushoff.
While sitting there more than a little nonplussed who should come into the restaurant than their good friend and customer Robert Parker, the wine guru with his publisher. Robert was in the city to launch a new book. Lenny invited them to join him which they immediately did.
Also noticing who had just come in Danny suddenly appeared and became interested in his new country bumpkin customers deciding they might have something to say after all.

To Gail and the girls,
I was so sorry to read of Lenny’s passing.
He was always one of my favorite “Dads” on the sideline at the girls games that I officiated at Park. We had good talks and I tried to teach him some of the rules😉.
He shared many things with me and we had great talks after games.
I pray you all find comfort and peace. He was a truly great man.

Oh the wonderful and delicious memories of dining at The Pimlico, The Polo Grill, Lenny’s Chophouse, The Belvedere, and via Pimlico and Classic Catering at home. It was all Lenny (with Gail), and it was all and always superb. May Lenny’s memory be for a blessing. We are so sorry for your loss. Elaine Eisenberg, Barbara and Joel Richmond

To all the Kaplans,
Your dad was a big part of so many lives, mine included. Playing basketball on the hoop at the house, having him on the sidelines of our soccer, basketball and lacrossse games, letting us eat whatever we wanted at the Pimlico Hotel and the list goes on. Most of all he was so kind and generous to us kids. Gail and Lenny were like parents to many of us and I cherish those memories.
Sending you strength and love from Cape Cod,
Brian Switzer

Dear Gail, Jeffrey, Laurie and Amy
My childhood is full of loving memories spent at your house, welcomed by all, outings/play dates with Amy and always a warm smile of hello good to see you by Lenny (or as I knew him Mr. Kaplan).
His warmth was a comfort and came through each and every time I saw him as a child into my adulthood.
May these and many other memories continue to provide comfort to you during this sad time.
With Love,
Ruthie (Blumenfeld) Silber

We were so saddened when we heard about the loss of your Lenny. My daughter worked for you at the Belvedere . She always said the tow of you were incredible bosses. If you needed more dishes,you and Lenny would start hand washing dishes. you both pitched in whenever there was need. May he Rest In Peace and always keep your memories.

Anne King

Posted at 08:39pm
Gail, As so many have already said, Lenny was in a class of his own. A totally classy professional at his trade. No one knew how to run a restaurant like Lenny. It was always a pleasure to see him at whatever venue he was running. And usually with you by his side. The two of you were a fantastic team. In retirement I enjoyed seeing you both taking classes at Chizuk Amuno. Everyone has wonderful memories of Lenny. I hope those wonderful memories are a source of comfort to you in these difficult days.

Dear Gail & Family,
We were so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved Lenny! Like so many have said, we also were regulars at the Pimlico on Friday nights! My dad, Ben Caplan, probably had a standing reservation! My mother, who loved to give parties, gave my dad’s 70th birthday at the John Eager Howard Room. We ate at all your restaurants because you were always guaranteed good food! Lenny always did a great job! He will be missed by all that knew him!

Nannette and Herman Blinchikoff

Posted at 06:29pm
Dear Gail and family,

Nannette and I are so sorry to read of Lenny's passing. Please accept our condolences. He was such a nice fellow and always upbeat when we met him.

I first met him when we played in the JCC Men's Basketball League in the 1960's. We were seldom on the same team, so I had the unenviable task of trying to guard him when our teams met. He was smart, quick, and had a terrific jump shot. However, in the 1990's we did play on the same team (Boogies Diner) in the Senior Olympics. We had a lot of fun, especially at practice.

Again, our condolences. Lenny was a mensch.

Ellyn and Stephen Polakoff

Dear Gail,
Sending our deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your family.
A Baltimore institution in and of himself, Lenny touched and will be missed by countless people.
I can recall a day at least 50 years ago, when we walked in a blizzard from our Mt. Washington home to The Pimlico, just because we really needed to eat (and drink) there...and they were open!
I know that Lenny's name will always be a blessing and bring a smile to those who think of him. May he rest in peace.

Dear Gail and Kaplan Family,
Norma and I extend our deepest condolences to you. Lenny was the classic “host” to every guest he was privileged to serve because he took a very personal interest in each one with his gorgeous smile, his genuine warmth and his enormous desire to please. These were the same qualities he brought to every relationship with family and friends too. His memory is already enshrined with blessing in the hearts and souls of so many.

Annabelle & Richard Sher

Lenny was born on July 4, 1937, and was a human firecracker! Actually, looking back, I don't think I had ever been to a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, when Lenny and Gail were not in charge. Lenny was the perfectionists's perfectionist. The list of Lenny's restaurant accomplishments would take up most of this Memorial Book! Whether on the 13 Floor, or at the genuine Pimlico Hotel on Hayward Avenue, Lenny was well-known, well-liked, and well-respected. His attention to detail was second to none.
I don't think I ever saw Lenny without that wide inviting smile. Just one of the great ones, who are leaving us far too soon. R.I.P. Lenny!

Dear Gail, My sincerest sympathy on the loss bill your dear Lenny.
The Pimlico Hotel was one of my earliest introductions to the real Baltimore when I first came here as a Goucher student from Dallas. From that night on, I always had wonderful times at the Shaivitz - Kaplan restaurants and seeing Lenny greet me with his special smile!
My wish for you is that the memories of the good times you shared with Lenny will sustain you as time goes on.

Dear Gail: as you surely know, my family goes so far back with you and Lenny that you two were like family to us. As lore has it, Lenny’s first big event assignment was my first (extravagant) wedding in 1966. There were never any Shapiro parties without Gail and Lenny at the helm. And the tradition has been passed down the generation. Your handsome, always smiling, fun, athletic husband will be missed by so many, and I know he will have a permanent place in your heart. Sending love.

We never had to wonder where the family would have Friday night dinner: The Pimlico Hotel, The New Pimlico Hotel or the Polo Grill the Coopers would be there enjoying the hospitality of the Shavitz/Kaplans and more often than not with our host Lenny. They were like Family.

We have missed these times more than you can imagine and hope that Lenny wil rip after a life well lived.

Dear Gail and family,
We were so very sorry to hear about Lenny‘s passing. In the restaurants he was a total perfectionist, The food was always served at the right temperature and extremely well prepared.
Outside of the restaurants he was always a guy’s guy. So fun to be with.
Lenny and Gail were quite a formidable pair. Never to be duplicated in our community.
We will miss Lenny and have many memories of special times together. At the turn of the millennium many of our friends wanted to go to foreign countries or elaborate parties. But we went with our kids to the Polo Grill and had a truly memorable evening. That is just one of our many special memories of Lenny and his legacy.
May his memory be for a blessing.

Gail— too many memories but our late night Friday dinners at The Polo and more than 20 years of Christmas morning brunches will always be my favorites. Thanks for seeing that my Len did finally propose in 2020 and for pulling our wedding together with Classic in 8 weeks— so he couldn’t change his mind. Love and hugs to you always.

Who showed my generation how to have the greatest time ever on Thursday night. And if you were lucky enough to be their you know exactly what I mean. And was their any place else you would rather have been then The Pimlico on Saturday night. I don’t think so. Lenny was one great local basketball players
I’m grateful that I got to share a small corner of his & Gail’s world.
Thanks for the memories
