Amazing story. Wonderful writing. Love the way you tied it all together.

You filled in the holes for me about her life. The things people can do to each other. Thanks, Corey.

Thomas

Oh, what an awful story! It saddened me terribly. I know all too well what rape can do. The mistrust and suspicion, I am still trying to get a handle nearly 36 years later!

You are such a fabulous storyteller, though Corey, or should I say BIOGRAPHER. Your gift here is indisputable. I hope fate and destiny both conspire to bless and honor you!

Corey

Thanks to The Daddy!

Thomas! Thank you for that blessing! I open my mind & spirit and receive it thankfully ! ! ! Yes, Flo's story is one of Pop Music's tragedies!

Corey

And one more thing, Thomas!
I KNOW ~ I'VE REALLY GOT TO MOVE PAST ALL THE
SAD STORIES ! ! !

Thomas

Oh, no, my friend, take your time, all in good time, all in good time. When your spirit MOVES you, when your spirit MOVES you!

Unfortunately, we only tend to learn from sadness.

REGGIE WAS A HEAD CASE SO WAS HIS MOTHER!!! THEY BOTH GOT KILLED.I REMEMBER WHEN REGGIE GOT OUT OF JACKSON STATE PRISON THE LAST TIME.A SHORT TIME LATER HE WAS DEAD.OH BY THE WAY CAN ANY ONE TELL ME HOW DID EX PISTON FRED FOSTER DIE.

A FEW YEARS AGO BUBBLES HAWKINS WAS FOUND MURDERED. HE COULD NOT STAY OUT OF THE CRACKHOUSE DIED AT 39.EX NBA-WARRIOR/NET /PISTON.

"Reggie Harding was an attractive, seven-foot tall, high-yella hometown hero"

So naturally if he's "high yella" that automatically makes him attractive. SMH. When are "Negroes" ever going to get over this shallow-minded mentality?

Benjaminson butchered Reggie Harding.In fact, there were no police reports and certainly no prosecution of Reggie over this incident.And Reggie was never convicted of any sex crime.He once was accused and tried for having voluntary sex with a fifteen year old when he was about seventeen.He was found not guilty of this charge.It`s outrageous that Benjaminson has circulated the rape of Flo by Reggie myth with no solid proof the rape actually occurred.
Reggie was a troubled person-no doubt.As a bball player he was highly talented.He led Detroit Eastern High School to three straight championships,He was NOT overmatched against Bill Russel.I watched Reggie outplay Russel and lead the Detroit Pistons to a victory over Boston one night in Detroit.Reggie was an extremely agile and athletic seven footer.He could have had a great -instead of reasonably good-N.B.A. career had he not been so troubled.
But the rape of Flo charge is just too unsupported.But I guess it`s easy to throw mud at a dead man like Reggie.
