You and Charles were talented beyond anything I’ve ever experienced since childhood. So blessed was I to be able to witness such greatness as was bestowed on you two. Well, take your places amongst Heaven’s greats.
How do we who were blessed to witness such greatness say thank you? I’m truly blessed because I know what greatness looks and sounds like, and can honestly say that there is nothing like being where you’re appreciated. “G”, as you spank those keys, tease those skins and give Gabriel a run for those streets of gold as you toot your horn remember to give praises to the Creator and tell him we thank Him from the bottom of our hearts for sharing you with us. As for Uncle Charles, Prince, D’ Angelo, Maxwell, Eric Benet, not even Al Green had or have nothing on you! Nothing!
Selah Uncle, Selah!
Loving and forever missing you 😔
Be at peace, and welcome home!
