And I said, ‘No, I’m on my way to Philadelphia to see my boyfriend. “And then he began the challenge for him.”

The day of her death, Time magazine called me and said, “Bring your photos immediately.”
Gray also said that her brief encounter with the legend of rock and roll “was the first and last.” I received a Christmas card from him once, but that was it, “he said.” Shortly thereafter, he left the state so I do not know if I tried to contact me or not. “
