To Rachel,

You're welcome. I first heard about his death over the weekend. I grew up listening to Kool and the Gang along with many R&B artists back in the day. Kool and the Gang is one of my favorite music group.

Dear Stephanie:

I want to thank you for the dignified way you presented this information on my father. It is a terrible loss for us and we would urge more people to take a que from your close to accurate research and professionalism.
