I’ve been hearing to many roomers about him dying or dead let alone about him still being alive and in hiding even though the last I had seen him was the year he moved from Oakland CA to Arizona where he’s at not. I’ve been seeking out the truth since I first heard all these roomers. Learning that he’s still a live and doing what he does best is good news to me. I’m keeping him and hes family in my prayers daily like I’ve been since we first met in the late 1950’s to early/mid 1960’s. May he be blessed and stay safe during the covid-19 epidemic. My distant cousin Alicia C Silvas aka shorty also has been worried about him as well do to the roomers we’ve been hearing.
