My fam who Freddy talks about being a hustlers hustler called me and left me a voice mail. When I woke up and played it back I heard him say"Freddy died, he ain't with us no more". When I got in touch with him, he said the service was gonna be on. 165th street & Prospect Ave. Now I grew up in that neighborhood & when I hear a funeral is gonna be on 165th & Prospect I think McCall's because Unity came to the Bronx long after McCall's. I know nobody is saying they missed the service because of that because if my directions were followed the two parlors are right across the street from each other. Sorry if I caused any confusion.

I just saw the Tribute to Ricky. I did know know myself and my son were in there. My son called him Uncle Rick and loved to hear the stories about him.
He was one of the best friends I ever had.

TShorts115-127, I have a copy of Rickys Tribute somewhere in my computer, I just have to find it, Rick and I were friends for over 20 years, last time I saw rick was on Rikers, we were both sentenced an waiting to go to Downstate, when I got out they gave me a floater back to Boston because I was on the Lam for a couple of years and was extradited from Boston back to NYC, I learned about his death on line, before rikers, Ricky, Guy T,and me spent the night before Guy went away, that messes my head up, Dr. Guy still in and Nicki the rat is out, anyway sorry for getting off the subject but I have a few things to do and will look for Rick's tribute when I get home, Hey Khalil I see your name right above, TShorts my email address is gasparvetrano@aol.com, send your to me and I can get the tribute back to you.

These are great glory stories of my uncle's Reggie and Georgie. And rest in peace to my uncle Georgie who passed away in prison 2 years ago. I want all you real hustler's to know that the brothers you knew then were thicker than ever before in their old age. Reggie fought till Georgie's last breath to get him out of jail. The Glory doesnt end here. Reggie went on to get a degree in criminal justice and help to reform what you know today as the rocafeller laws. These are the lessons of hustler that you should adorn today!

Please be careful out there. And let's all make a joint effort to stop all this minority on minority violence And let that hater-aid be a thang of the pass.
Enjoy your life
