Looks like Dicky Neely Has Left the Room

I noticed Julie Johnson - an elusive one : ) - had left a comment on Dicky Neely's last post, so I went to see what she had to say....

Then afterward, found this:

I didn't interact with Mr. Neely so much, but, appreciated his persistence, his drawings and attitude.

RIP Dicky.

...and thanks for the heads up, Julie. Hope all is well over your way.

I'm sorry to hear this. Thank you, Anna. I was wondering why I hadn't seen any of his cartoons lately. He shared some of his paintings and drawing with me over the last year...

I enjoyed his work, I put a memorial post from his Facebook page on the Orphans of Open Salon page, here is the link to the video they shred. It seems he was quite the harmonica player, too.

Thought you all might want to know.

...and thanks, Phyllis! fyi to all the link only works for those on facebook. (I'm not sure who here uses it...)

... and thanks again, Julie, for the quiet form of letting us know.

(I know you got back on facebook.... but not sure whether you're in an on again or off again phase  : ) )

I found the same post of Julie's. Does anyone have any details? Yes, he was a blues player.

Doc,
Can I assume you understand that the guy didn’t leave the site, he died?

Comment by Ron Powell on March 15, 2019 at 8:53pm

@Doc; That comment should be deleted....

If you had an ounce of simple decency, empathy, and compassion in you, you would delete it yourself....
