|Bio and Links|
Coming from a small town and moving to the Empire State was no big deal for me because I had visited New York many times before making the move, the move exposed me to the many cultures, lifestyles and attitudes. These are just a few of the things that helped me to mature. New Yorkers seem to have had a different life style, but soon I became a New Yorker. Before moving to New York, I discovered I had a passion for music (have a musical love affair with Motown)and an interest in famous people and the history of famous people. At the age of 16 I began my own scrapbook of famous entertainers using the different magazines to gather information. Some forty years later I began putting together another scrapbook "Memorials". At this time I discovered "Find A Grave", Find A Grave helped to expand my knowledge on the history of famous people. Through my travels, I have visited many famous grave sites; have even gone out of my way searching for famous grave sites. At this point I am entering family members and friends in Find A Grave, I enjoy writing biographies, famous and non-famous. By the way, I no longer live in New York, I went from the Empire State of the North to the Empire State of the South. When I moved South, I had to work. I am now at a point in my life and I don't have to work. I am retired, yeah!!! It is such a joy.|

|Walter Gray||RE: Freddie Carlos Gray, Jr.|
Hello again and thank you for your response. Freddie Gray was not actually a family member. He was a troubled young man but did not deserve to die the way he did.
When I see cases like his and Sean Bell it touches me and reminds me that it could happen to any of us.
I grew up in New York City and during the years there I saw so many our young men disrespected, beaten and murdered by those who are there "To Serve and Protect".
Again, thank you for your reply. I have been reading so many of your memorials and appreciate your passion for what you are doing.
|Walter Gray||Your Bio and Contributions|
I read your bio and found it to be very inspiring.
The memorials you have created show a great caring and appreciation for your history.
I sent an edit for the day of her death. It is June not July as you have on the board.

The photo you have on Mr Womack's memorial is of his son, Curtis "Binky" Womack, who is a young recording artist.

|New York Historian||RE: Flossie Robinson|
Your quite welcome.... Have a nice weekend. Are you related to Flossie?
|Shenk & Dorothy Ellhers||Cuba Gooding, Sr.|
Your memorial of Cuba Gooding, Sr. needs to be removed as a DUPLICATE. Someone by the name of CS created the memorial before you did.
|Doris Aliff||Cuba Gooding|
Listed twice and the other one was first. I wanted to place a flower but will wait to see which one is removed. thanks
