(WXYZ-TV) - Wow, what a way to end my fantastic career, by sitting down with some of my friends forever for compelling conversations in the studio.
First I invited Pridine Fru, who drove all the way from Baltimore to sit down with me at Broadcast House.
Pridine is a girl I first knew as "Precious." I met her about 12 years ago, and we couldn't use her name because she was a teenage victim of rape, betrayed by a couple she trusted.
Pridine came to America from Cameroon, searching for an education, Instead, she ended up a sex slave, and the couple who abused her landed in prison.
I saw a great deal of promise in this girl and I reached out to her, letting her know she is loved. She has since conquered her demons and she's on a mission to empower others to embrace all life has to offer.
Next the kidney guys, Omie Smith and Bill Ratliff, two best friends and karaoke buddies. When Omie needed a kidney, Bill just happened to be a perfect match, and he offered one of his to keep his best friend alive.
I've enjoyed knowing each of these wonderful people, and all of you as well.
From the bottom of my heart, thanks for looking in.
