You probably don’t know the name Dick Snyder. When he died on Tuesday, I got an email from one of his sons, Rob Snyder, a friend of mine. (The other Snyder boy, also a Richard, is my cardiologist.) Rob explained to the recipients of the email that his father had passed but that his parents were (are, in his mother’s case) both very private people and that the service, whenever it happened, would only be for immediate family. Which is why yesterday brought an unexpected development. Bobbi Snyder went public with her husband’s death, using PRNewswire to distribute this obit. As Rob said, “Mom kinda surprised me with this one.”
Those of you who use the Katy Trail now know why flowers showed up last night at the spot here pictured.
