What a weekend! The guys sang Friday night in Frankenmuth with a quartet called Safe Harbor from North Carolina. Unfortunately, their bass singer had been in a very serious car accident a couple weeks ago, developed complications and was hospitalized just before they left for Michigan. The above pictures show our very own bass singer, Jerry auditioning for their group. Just kidding!!! I don't think Jerry has any intentions of leaving The Royalheirs and it's a good thing because we would hunt him down and drag him back.
It was a tough weekend for Jerry and his family. His beloved grandpa, Leland "Doc" York passed away last week. His grandfather was a great lover of music (all music but especially quartet music). I don't think I've ever been to a more beautiful tribute. The guys sang two songs and another song was sung by Jerry's brother, Paul. Friends and family spoke of their memories with Doc and how he touched their lives. When one of your own is mourning, you feel their pain and wish you could do more to comfort them and all of us in The Royalheirs' family were glad we could be there with Jerry and his family.
