deangold Posted September 9, 2006 Share Posted September 9, 2006 Today I got an e-mail from a former boss.... my good friend Kevin died in a motor cycle accident yesterday. He leaves three kids and a great wife. I will surely miss him. I remembered the first day I met him.... I was interviewing him for a wine specialist position at Whole Foods. Here was this punk kid with a shaved head, death's head tattoos on his arm wearing a Ridge Montebello tee shirt. He spoke a language I barely understood although it seemed to use English words I was familiar with. He had a tongue stud. I hired him on the spot and the store manager thought I was insane. Year later he was a recognized leader at Whole Foods. I will miss him. I can only describe him in the words I remember him describing my favorite wine (and his) Ridge Montebello... "It’s like… too much, man, wild... like... I mean..." Yeah Kevin, I know what you mean. I just hope they have Ridge Montebello 1974 on the wine list where ever you are now!!!
