OOOPS I awoke with a start this morning and I realized that I had called Johnny Cool, Johnny Ace.
Thanks for reminding me Fred
Fred called me Dad, because I spent many hours watching Fred, my son David Dunn, Johnny Ace, Dan and Jimmy play in the park. Being one who passed the bucket around I can also attest that many a night the park band did very well as more people were in Handy Park than the Clubs. As people dropped gratuaty in the bucket Fred would ask where they were from and on many cities he would comment "I spent two weeks there one Saturday night"
I was also honored to join the band as an escort on their 99 trip to the Netherlands where they brought the house down.
May God Bless Chris, Joyce and all that particapated in a wonderful celebration as Fred entered the Pearly Gates.
