I just learned that a friend of mine died. His name was Dennis Reilly and he was the founder and president of a group called National Alliance for Taxicab Justice that sought to reform the taxicab system.
Dennis was 72 years old. He was a good man who wanted to make his corner of the world a better place. Rest in peace, Dennis.
I am advised that a funeral-wake for Dennis is scheduled for this Friday, October 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Collins Funeral Home, 500 University Blvd., Silver Spring, Md. 20901.
