    Thank you, Marv!

    I talked to Willie many times. He was always very kind, very likeable and easygoing.

    Very nice piece Heikki, thank you.

    Thank you, Ralph.
    Willie was only four months older than I am, so that happened way too early.

    Marv! I wonder, where they got that "co-founder", because Willie joined the group only eight years after it was formed.

    Best regards

    I don't know. People say all kinds of things. I watched a video last night where the commentator pronounced the name of Pope "Pie- US", Pope "Pee-Us" about 35 times. Drove me nuts! LOL!

    Willie was an important part of the Dramatics as he was a member all during their peak years and worked to keep the name alive thereafter. Some think L.J. Reynolds is an original member, when we know he joined around 1973. Larry Demps is the last remaining original member of the Dramatics I believe.

    That's right, Marv. Larry Demps is the only one.
    I remember that Larry had some connections with the Stubbs Girls (https://www.soulexpress.net/deep309.htm#stubbsgirls), because he alerted me to them ten years ago. I see that the girls have become active again recently.
    Now I went a bit off-topic, because, however, this is a tribute to Willie.

    Best regards
    Heikki
