I went to Jackie's book signing in Warwick and introduced myself to him and his biographer, and I found Jackie a light hearted man of great wit. It was great talking to him, and listening to his very candid comments abour Count Zedbits Randy's one time business manager,so called. From 1951 to 1966 thw love Jackie had for Randy his brother never waivered. Randy's death floored Jackie and Jackie never believed it was suicide. Jackie is the last of the Turpins, and the things he has recalled in his book are refreshing and he sts many points straight. i.e. how Randy got the name liker. Most of Randy's friends and family are now gone in death. Mosh Mancine,Brother Dick,Joan, Chathy George Middleton. Not forgetting Jackie's wife, who he loved so intensly and Randy's mum. Rest in deaths sleep, It's a privlidge to walk a mile in your shoes,and use empathy and feel what you do.
