When I was a very young child I discovered a very rare soul, he was a clown minus the costume. I don't think he even tried, it was just who he was. I hope he never lost that in his journey in life & I hope wherever he may be now that he is still laughing.

The day we met.

I remember the day he walked into my life. He was staying with his brother Warren at the time who happened to be our neighbor in Belcamp, MD. Me and my sister was outside playing, I was around 10 yrs old at the time and she was 7yrs. (1980-1981) He was taking his daily run and stopped to ask us if we wanted a candy bar, at first we were a little nervous and wondering why he was talking to us. He continued talking and asked us again if we wanted a candy bar, so we asked what kind? He said a "Whatchamacallit", we started laughing and said that isn't a candy bar, he said yes it is. We were like stop playing, no it isnt. So he went into the house and came back with a "whatchamacallit" candy bar. We were so shocked. From that day on didn't know he was gonna become a important person in my life.
