Hey pallies, yesterday we read 'bout a father readin' a poem he wrote about watchin' a Dino and the jer flick with his family at his one son's memorial service. At the same time I discovered that post, our great pallie Danny G. sent me a link to an obituary where it shows that the two disceased sons of the man, Lewis Martin Broadway were named "Dean Martin Broadway" and "Jerry Lewis Broadway.' Obvious the elder Mr. Broadway musta been a huge fan of our beloved Dino and his partner Jerry Lewis.
Likes 'specially what a great honor it musta been for son "Dean Martin Broadway" to knows that his namesake was our great man! ilovedinomartin sends our sincerest condolences to the family of Mr. Lewis Martin Broadway and our thanks to our own Dino-lovin' pallie Danny G. for puttin' us on to this Dino-information. To view this in it's original format, at "The-Dispatch.com, just clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram. Dino-loved, DMP
