1. What can I say about Tito. He would have been a good diplomatic political leader. He raised his boys the right way and taught them all the good stuff. I am very very proud of the way he raised his sons, the 3T’s. What made the 3T’s so good is they copied after their father. Tito had the patience to teach them. Some of them sleep with keyboards right by their bedside, so if they get up in the middle of the night with a tune in their head, they write it down, practise as not to forget it. They are excellent writers, good producers and good entertainers. He always had cool way about him and my hat goes off to him for the great job he has done with raising my incredible grandsons.

  4. About Jackie. He has a very strong will and does not like being told what to do. A story comes to mind during his growing up years. I bought Jackie a brand new saxophone because I wanted him to play some type of instrument besides just dancing and singing. He looked at the instrument, took it with him to school, came back home and told me as a matter of fact that he did not want it.  One day, years later he came into my office and asked me “How come I am not playing any instruments. I replied, “You said you did not want it and you put it down”.  He inquired why I never forced him as it would have been good for him. I never told him why not, but I knew his will was to strong back then to be forced into doing something he never wanted to do. That was why I never tried.

  5. What can I say about Rebbie. She is my eldest child and as most first borns do, she carried the weight of responsibility to look after her brothers and sisters. She is a good daughter. A 100% jehovah witness. She raised all her children as Jehovah witnesses. As Katherine had to work, the responsibility fell on her to cook and look after my other kids. She helped Katherine a lot in raising the kids, and I do have much to thank her for how she carried herself through the years.

  8. “What I can say about Katherine, is she has the most gentle soul of any one I have ever met. And she loved her children. She was really a very good mother to the children. She knew where every single one of them was at all times while she was also working. She did keep them off the street. Many don’t know this but she helped me a lot rehearsing the kids. Although she does not celebrate birthdays she knows all their birthday’s by heart. We’ve been through a lot together

    Her unique character. When Katherine and I argue as couples sometimes do, I am not worried at all if she is loud, shouts or screams at me. But when she gets really quiet, ooh that is when I know to be very very careful around her. Still water runs deep. There is so much of Michael in her.”
