Good friends are hard to come by , and Raleigh (Tete ) and Janet his wife was friends to Perry and I , a lot of years . We got to know them through Linda ( Janets sister ) and David Howell, Lindas husband . We had the honor of Tete singing one of the songs he had wrote , on one of the Gospel Albums we did , back around 1993-94. It was a beautiful song , ad he did a super job on it The Name of it was, " Crown of Thorns ". Sometime Tete and bro Dave would come out and just visit , . One of the last times i can remember Tete and Bro Dave coming down to visit , Perry was cooking Homemade Buttermilk Buiscuts and Gravy That morning , and they all got to Laughing and talking , when Perry suddenly remembered the Buiscuts , which by that time had cooked , hard as rocks ! LOL . Well the Breakfast went on the Table , and everyone ate those Buiscuts and said they were really GOOD! Bro Dave and Tete , even took some home with Them . The most recent of visits was Perry and Melvin Brown my brother , were over visiting with Elder Tom and Emma Minx, and Tete Dropped by to visit with them to . So Glad they all got to visit togeather one more time . Tete was a true friend , always the same where ever you met him , and truely had a heart of Gold for others .
