Dear Rel, was a "rebel" from the start and the most beloved minister to all those in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area who shared his visionary spirit. I am glad to see him listed here as he was never ordained by the UUA hierarchy, yet reigned supreme in the hearts/minds/& souls of his "congregants' in Ft. Lauderdale.
Rel was a real, geniuine "hippy" & I mourn his passing, as that of a brother.
