I asked my cousin Shirley about her favorite movie star and this is what she told me:

“When I was little, Roy Rogers was my FAVORITE person.  I got all the people in my town to vote for him to be come the King of Cowboys. Tate has taken me to see him several times, even when he was with the Yellow Jacket boats and came to Shreveport and met us on the river bank.  He was a very special person.  I can remember when Dusty (Roy Jr) was born and when his mother died.  I was at the beach when Roy died, and it was a very sad day.  We have a lot of his films on tape so I can see them when I want.”
