"If an able-bodied man dies can he live again?
All the days of my compulsory service I shall wait,
Until my relief comes.
You will call, and I myself shall answer you.
For the work of your hands you will have a yearning. "

To The Meminger Family, New York Knicks, and New Yorkers everywhere: My heartfelt condolences at the loss of such a gentle giant. I had the pleasure of meeting Dean, the Dream, at a Basketball Hall of Fame ceremony held by a local community based children's organization in Harlem. He was such a nice, soft spoken brother. Not bombastic, or boastful, but with a quiet power. The young people who attended adored him and asked him a lot of questions, and he answered them in a very lighthearted manner. Now that he's made his transition to the ancestors, I know he's joined the pantheon with other greats who have gone before him. What a team! Stay Blessed & ECLECTICALLY BLACK -Gloria Dulan-Wilson

Dear Meminger Family,

I'll always remember Dean "The Dream" Meminger for all the talks we had every time we ran into one another. I met Dean in 1966 at a pick up basketball game in the Columbia University gym. I was a freshman student with heritage from South Carolina just like Dean. Both of Us were enjoying New York City and everything that comes with the Big Apple. We mostly talked about life, but we'd eventually get to basketball and the things one needed to do inorder to be the best. We would debate what NBA player was the best during those times. Of course, I always said Norman "Wilt" Chamberlain because of my growing up in Wilmington, Delaware. Dean went with Bill Russell for the defense and because Russell made his other players the best they could be. I'm going off, but this is how we spoke to one another. I'm going to miss Dean coming to my Riverside Drive apartment during my party days. I'm also going to miss our friendship that spanned four decades plus! As stated at the Memorial Celebration, "Dean "The Dream" Meminger will live on because a Dream never dies, it continues to manifest itself into fruition! God Bless the Meminger Family and I'll always tell folk about the great friend, Dean "The Dream" Meminger that I had in New York City. Two South Carolina guys just hanging out in Harlem, New York! Those were the days!!
