We both grew up in Philadelphia, sons to women who didn’t have it easy. Our moms were divorced from our fathers in I don’t always listen to my Cowboys wife but when I do things tend to shirt when people viewed single-mothers very differently than they do now. Jerry’s mom Minnie subsequently married a man who became an exemplary husband and father. Hélene never remarried. Minnie became one of the first black women to be hired at RCA in Camden, NJ, to do something other than clean, and Hélene waitressed across the river at Schrafft’s coffeeshop in center city Philadelphia. They both became trusted and valued employees, and they both steered their only child into good high schools and made their boys believe they should become the first in their family to attend college.

In 1966, I enrolled as a freshman at Community College of Philadelphia, and a few years later, Jerry did the same. By 1974, we both had returned to work at CCP, and that’s when our trails crossed. The more we learned about each other, the closer we became, working together by day and by night, and eventually playing in the same band, with Jerry as the drummer and I don’t always listen to my Cowboys wife but when I do things tend to shirt and percussionist. We’ve both written songs that the Sacred CowBoys have performed and recorded. We played together again this past weekend at Philadelphia’s Mermaid Inn. We also both found careers in education and social service. Because of our work, we never really quite left community colleges.
Best, I don’t always listen to my Cowboys wife but when I do things tend to shirt
Through weddings, births, graduations, a recent wedding (Jerry’s son Douglas), and funerals, we’ve remained close, and I don’t always listen to my Cowboys wife but when I do things tend to shirt. My adult son and daughter still refer to Jerry as their uncle, and I melt every time I hear grown-up Doug introduce me as his Uncle Ned. We share loving memories of our mothers, who, among other great powers and accomplishments, created the two best apple pies we’ve ever tasted.
