Re: Walter Payton's mom dies after illness
Payton came to our home for a Zulu Club casino night. Me being about 10 years old, wasnt quite sure this was the cat I'd seen on tv. So anyway.. he signed, then handed me a card. I promptly wandered off to listen to a Richard Pryor record in my closet with my cousin. Now, just ask me whatever became of that card... I was far more interested in scavenging the shrimp mold and sandwiches after-party

By all accounts growing up, he was a model dude. I hope both he and his mother have reached the promised land
