    Oh wow, so sorry to hear this. My prayers go out to Valerie and the family. He was another one, like James Brown and Jackie Wilson when they came to the studio for radio interviews and pictures were going to be taken....they would ask to use my makeup.
    Those were wonderful times and great fun.
