To the family and friends of Bernie Mac, you are in our prayers. I had the pleasure of meeting Bernie Mac years ago when I was working for the Stellar Gospel Awards. I told him that I was from the Chicago area and he was excited. Bernie needed a steamer and in his voice and in his way, he said, "Baby Girl, Baby Girl, I need a steamer." He was so kindhearted and sincere, I made sure that he got his steamer. I loved his comedy. I loved his passion. And, I loved that he LIVED his dream.
Check out Chicago Sun Times, BET and MSNBC for more information about the best comedian in my opinion since Robin Harris.
