Probably Gave Kenny His Last Haircut, at County Avenue Barbershop. I guess he Started coming to me for the Past10 years at least or more , We Kinda hit it off from first time he Came in , because he lived in Dallas at about the Same time I Did , 1970's & 1980's , LOTS OF PLACES & Good Times & Stories We Remenininced About During These Years , He Was Always Amazed at My Music Collection that I Have on DVD & Vinyl, & Vast Knowledge of all the 50's , 60's,70's, 80's, 90's, Rock, Pop, Soul, & Bluesfrom these Past Years, ! He Especially Loved The Music of Levi Stubbs & The Four Tops. The Temptations. & Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, & I Believe His Favorite Song Was " If You Don't Know Me By Now" by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, LOL, Lastly I Would Like To Say That Kenny Rogers Loved His Mother To The Moon & Back. He Missed Her Terribly Everday When She Died 2 or 3 Years ago , & was never really the same, God Bless Kenny Rogers & I Pray He Will Reunite You With Your Mom & All Your Loved Ones that Have Passed on To The Other Place that We All Know & Pray is HEAVEN. in Jesus Name ,, AMEN & AMEN. .

I have so many memories , from watching game shows to concerts. Either the television was on or the radio . We laughed so much such a great memory for jokes !. But my favorite memory was when I told him and joke and he laughed and laughed, then a week later he told me my joke to me ! It was such a great moment! He thought my joke was good enough to tell others!! I shall miss him deeply !. Until we meet again Sir !.
