"I saw her and just ran, ran as hard as I could."

“I got into Louisville middle of the afternoon, I left my bags at the bus station, just had a little overnight bag with me, so I took a taxi to Rene’s house which was at 18 Algonquin Parkway in Louisville. Rene was outside her house, this was in June so she was out there in shorts talking to her mother and father about something or other. And the taxi pulled up at the end of the street and let me out and I saw her and just ran, ran as hard as I could and I dropped my bag and I grabbed her. It was such a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful experience. Of course I was crying, but here, she didn’t know who it was at first because I had this green uniform on and had gained weight and everything else, but we had just a wonderful reunion.”
