Two Dear Friends From My University Days Are Dead

In late 1969- June, 1971 I was dear friends with two fellow Tulane students-Kenneth Allan Jaye and William Schoof. I kept in touch with Ken after I graduated and even stayed with him at his house in Odessa, Texas in 1981. I found out from the Tulane Alumni Association that both of these wonderful men are now dead. I am the sole survivor and that gives me pause to think.

About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
