Many years ago when Mr. McGovern was running for President, he was in Charlotte for a fund raising event. While taking a break away from the crowd in a quiter section of First Baptist Church, one of Charlotte's largest at that time in the downtown area, he sat at a piano and was attempting to play as Mahalia Jackson was humming the Hymn "Just a closer walk with Thee". I, being a candidate for Charlotte/Mecklenburg 1970 School board was privileged to be in the group attempting to gather votes. I suggested to Mr. McGovern that he allow me to play the piano and he and Mahalia could sing along. He agreed and it was an enjoyable time playing several more hymns with he, Mahalia and others singing along. It was a great time I enjoyed meeting and talking with Mr. McGovern knowing that he was an honest and intent man. With that in mind, I offer my condolences to his family at this their time of loss.
