Hi, my name is Donna Ross Douglas. I was born in 1963 in Chicago, Illinois, but am now living in Brownsville, Tennessee, daughter of Johnny Ross, a member of the group Baby Huey and the Babysitters. I'm sorry to read about James Ramey's untimely death but happy to see that the memory of Ramey and the band does live on. I'm also proud of my father and the other band members who were part of this legend also. Thanks for doing this article on the very popular Baby Huey and the Babysitters. We really do need this information down here. I'm sure we have people here that recall this outstanding man and band or are interested in locating some of their music. Maybe you and my father can help the people down here bring back some of those memories. Just wanted to say thanks to you and my dad. Bye.
