3rdthawkins & Georgia,
Thanks so very much for your response & comment on the article.
Mrs. Taylor and the photo of Whispering Echos Choir brought back so many wonderful memories. I wasn't a 'singing member' of the choir because I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket , but they allowed me to travel and participate with the choir as an 'equipment handler'. The position was really to permit me to be a part of the group along with my three (3) best friends seen seated in the front L-R Charles Andy, Toussaint Foston & Kenneth Thorpe. We were known as Charley-boy, Kenny-boy, Tucson and me, Sonny-boy.
Charley-boy & Tucson are deceased, but Kenny-boy and I, after 70+ years, are still best friends.
And AfriGeneas ...... thank you for allowing me to share my memories.
Best Friends: 1944
Whispering Echoes: 1943
