Not sure what to say?

I remember "Rip Taylor" known to me as "Charlie Bill" growing up. His grandmother lived next door to me on 12th St. NE, Wash., DC & her granddaughter, Diane was a good friend of mine. He would entertain us at birthday parties by putting a mop on his head and acting silly. He was the same age as my older brother, Ronnie who also passed away last Oct. RIP "Charlie Bill" aka Rip Taylor. (Dolores Snellings Vincent)

Mr. RIP Taylor
Thanks for your contribution to American tv comedy entertainment industry work. I
saw you on the David Letterman show wearing a yellow big bird type suit, and you were in high gear and high energy with your confetti comedy act. That was funny as you were throwing/pouring it on
(the confetti) on the audience. Plus the comedy props you used was funny also. It was all good.
My condolences to the family of
Mr. Taylor for your loss. You are the original...

To the family and friends, may you be comforted knowing that God loves all of you. He will open his hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. - Psalm 145:16.

A good friend of mine since 1989...may you RIP ..
