I don't cry often, but this was definitely one of those moments when I heard of my friend Stephen Dillard passing. He was possibly the nicest guy in the world. The smile you see in the photo is one he always wore, it really captures his spirit. On top of that, he's done more for chess in this area than the next 100 people have combined. He's run more USCF rated tournaments than anyone in US history, he's been a mentor and encouragement to many new chess players and new tournament directors, myself included. His shoes will simply never be filled.
