We've been reading the accounts online regarding the shooting at Cosmic Pizza early Saturday evening. The owner, Richard Evans, was shot multiple times during an attempted robbery and died shortly after in his neighbor's yard. It's the nightmare that none of us want to hear about one of our entrepreneurs that was trying to make our city a finer place for all of us to live. We never had the opportunity to visit Cosmic Pizza, but from all accounts it was a welcoming environment meant for families to enjoy and much of that was because of Rich's personality.
He leaves a wife (who is Thai and speaks very little English) and 3 young children. Our hearts go out to them. We wish Dexter could rub up against them and work his magic to make them feel better. That always helps everything!
