Recalling the day Ray Meyer gave me some sound advice

Ray Meyer?#34;the great coach of DePaul’s basketball team of 42 years from the 1940s to the 1980s with 724 victories, and I don’t know how many losses. We don’t talk about loss in Chicago sports. Ray Meyer was a big part of this town as I grew up. He had a gap-tooth smile that beat all others. At his passing, I was reminded how his life met mine way back in 1968.
