Death Among Us

The news has been filled lately with death - Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and today I saw that Bill Mays (commercial guy) had died. The saddest part is that most of them were so young.
Well, for those of you who remember where the McKnight Road Variety Shows started - The White House - there is another death to report. You will probably remember Freddie White who owned the hall at that time and contributed to our show with his version of Danny Boy. Freddie was younger than me so he was too young but his health had been declining for years. This picture is about 30 years old at least and Freddie is top man, Steve is in the middle and George is in the front.

I have fond memories of Fred. There were at least two variety shows that Fred joined me on stage to help me help me sing a song. I always thought I sounded better with "FRED" It was sad that he died so young.
