To Doyles' family:
I know that words are just not enough at a time like this, but still, I had to drop a line to you.
it has been decades since I have seen Doyle Sr. We used to have some great times as teenagers in Irving long before he became the great vocalist singer.
But even then, for a "white guy", he was totally mind blowing when he sang! Soul for days in that voice!
He receive me as a friend though I am 20 times darker in color, it did not matter to Doyle in those days.
It is interesting to read in all the reviews, but the one thing that stands out, is about him being kind and gentle.
How often does anyone read such words today? But that was Doyle to me. Even after all these decades, the one dominant thing I remember of him: GENTLE AND KIND.
My prayers are with you.
