From Sammy King


Clinton,
Rumors of my demise were greatly exaggerated, but after 4 months in a coma, one year in various hospitals, and a lot of thearapy I am back on stage at the Palm Springs Flollies for the entire season. Truly a miracle, and I thank you for passing the word around.
After the upcoming convention, I'm going to retire to Colorado and enjoy my granddaughter. I'm still planning on coaching a few of my ongoing students, but my performing will be limited.
Hope to see you in Colorado.
Warmest regards,
Sammy King

  3. Wow! I'm glad you are okay. I HATE talking to dead people. I've been out of touch, so had not heard the rumors.

    There was a rumor that I was killed in Viet Nam, and many were surprised to see me. However, I suffered no injuries like you did.

    I hope you enjoy your retirement as much as I do mine, though I wish I were back in Colorado.

    Best wishes and fond memories!
