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!!

My prayers go out to the family of Dean Meminger. May they find comfort in the,Lord. I am not sure why I was unable to find details about his funeral as I really wanted to be there I am sadden by his untimely death. For me he was a very special memory I shared my first real kiss with him, then he convinced me that there was value in eating a raw egg shake,attending church together and the laughs that young people share in HS and inventing our own code to say good night from his window to mines. The years moved on like each of us did. I followed his career and the times he was having his great moments and those less memorable. But in all times he was and continues for to be for me "Dean" the Dream" Dean rest in peace.

Dean "the Dream" soared above me in the Bronx Catholic Boy School Championships at LaSalle Gym in 1963. St. Cecelia's trounced Sacred Heart (HighBride) that day. I've been a fan ever since. May he rest in peace. Richie (now in Hantsport, Nova Scotia)
