Author’s note:  I would like to say that Mr. Pope, as I respectfully called him, although he was just a few years older than me, was a most precious neighbor and friend.  He was in some way related to my mother-in-law, Mary Nell Pope Mays, and therefore to my son, Wayne, and his late father, Gary Wayne Mays, Sr.  My friend Don and I took a quick liking to him and his (late) wife when they moved into our small neighborhood several years ago and upon finding out his name was Pope, I immediately set about to find out how we were ‘Kin’ or rather how he was ‘kin’ to my mother-in-law.  I was surprised to find that he had worked at radio and television stations when they lived ‘up north’.  And that he had worked some or ‘volunteered’ some time at local tv stations in Fulton, Mississippi and in Hamilton, Alabama.  He was a H.A.M. Radio enthusiast and loved the internet…mostly he loved being in touch with his family and folks with whom he had worked and gone to church while ‘Up North’!  He loved going to church and had been attending the Detroit Church of God, in Detroit, Alabama, as his health permitted.  He attended school at Hamilton High in Hamilton, Alabama.  Mr. Pope has 4 daughters whom I will name later and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren all of whom I will try to mention in my obituary as I receive the information. Don and I will miss him so much.
