Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
You won't find three better folks than the three people I'm featuring today. I'm proud to call of them my friend.
Rich "Svengoolie" Koz has been a Chicago legend for 40+ years. Having worked with Koz several times and having been able to get to know him a bit, I am happy to say he is one of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met. He is amazingly generous with his time. He is a complete class act.
I could say much of the same about Glen and Alicia Rylko. While they haven't been famous entertainers, they are genuinely great people and also very generous with their time. Glen and Alicia donate lots of time and energy to various local charities.
I'm grateful to be friends with all three. Surround yourself with quality people and good things happen. These three are top quality for sure.
I miss seeing all three of these fine folks at conventions and elsewhere. Hopefully, soon we will all be able to get back to doing the things we enjoy, including seeing each other.
