Mike Carter (1966)

Had not seen George since one night several years ago at the Bessie Smith Strut.  He was with Mike Taylor.  We visited for a while.  George was a friend from Normal Park, Northside, and finally City High School.  I walked to school.  George's mom made it a point to give a couple of my friends and me an invitation to "stop by on our way to school." She gave us a breakfast snack and a ride to school.  I am sure George learned a lot from his parents.  He was always kind to me. He got me on the stage crew at Northside where he and I worked for Chamberlain.  George and I were the stage crew.  Chamberlain taught us a lot about lighting.  We loved working on the stage crew.  Wish I had continued it at City, but I didn't.  Tried many times to find George, but nobody knew anything about him.  Guess I asked the wrong people.  Never crossed paths again until he passed away.  Visited with his family at OLPH where the funeral was held.
