Nipsey Fan Seeks Same

Dear Nick,

I was reading with interest your article from October 5, 2005 [“Dear Nipsey”].

It is interesting, and I was wondering if you ever found out who the owner of this AOL Nipsey Russell fan page is. I know this may sound like a very crazy question, but there is a method to the madness that I ask.

  1. I know that this person is from Princeton, Illinois, where I grew up.
  2. Somehow, back in the 1994/1995 timeframe, this person found out what my AOL ID was, and would send me criptic notes about growing up in Princeton, and things that “we” did … . Problem with that is that all these things were group (school, summer baseball, etc.) type activities.
  3. As soon as I got married, the e-mails stopped and I could not get a response.
  4. This person contacted the class president and let them know what my e-mail address was, so that I could receive information about classmates, reunions, etc. The class president doesn’t know WHO this person is … . He has nothing, other than one e-mail from NipseyR@aol.com with a short list of names and e-mail accounts that helped him get in touch with us … .

I am curious as to who this person is, and with the holidays coming up, I would like to send them a mystery gift that will brighten their day … .

Especially since Nipsey Russell passed away this year.

Thanks if you can assist me.
