mr. Turman, I am certain that you do not remember me. Glynn Turman Jr. and I were friends in school (Granada hills high school) and we lived near each other in Los Angeles (just off washington blvd) Mr. Turman, I just wanted to say pretty much what any fan of yours would say, but also a sincere Hello and hope you and your family is well..Personally I think that what you delivered to the Movie "Deep Cover" was the true underpinning of the entire piece. Your performance was beautiful, to say the least. May your light increase.
