    Memories of Dick Clark

    The beautiful and humble spirit of Dick Clark

     
    October 28th 1984 my oldest son Mother past. She was my first love from age 13-21, so of course my heart was torn in pieces. It was the saddest day of my life to this day. The next day I received a call saying I made the show “Puttin on the hits”; the show was produced by Dick Clark. I told them about my loss, and they were kind enough to give me the time to decide if I wanted to come on or not. My heart was ripped up, but my family, friends and co-workers convinced me it would be good for my spirit; so I went. The next week I arrived in L A on the set of “Puttin’ on the hits”, and minutes later Dick Clark walked in the room. Wow!!! He came to greet all the contestants. He shook my hand, and his hand was extremely smooth, so I asked if he ever worked a day in his life…Lol!!! He laughed and then told me good luck. He had a beautiful and humble spirit, and meeting him gave me the mental and spiritual jump start I desperately needed during the saddest moment in my life. It was too cool! I had the biggest smile on my face the entire 8hr ride back to San Francisco. I’m truly honored to have met him; he was really one of the good ones. Dick Clark will truly be missed (smile).
