Whitey Anderson Indian factory racer and worker had a nasty fall on Thursday morning and was rushed to the hospital where they found he has a bad case of pneumonia.
Played hooky from work this AM and met Millie at the hospital. I found out some interesting info about Whitey, I had noted that several post on the Internet talk about a Andy Anderson in the Yankee chapter of the AMCA. I asked Millie about that she said Whitey was know as Andy during his time in the service and afterwords it stuck until his fellow racers came up with the Whitey label. Only his parents friends call him Walter. UPDATE: there is a Andy Anderson in CT who also has a large early indian collection so theres some confusion at time wich Anderson is who..
Well Whitey was able to talk some but not very well his breaths are short and rapid. It took some time for him to recognize me and Millie and son Art. I had brought some large photo's from 2006 Florida trip and Millie got Whitey to point out the people in the photos. He's very weak and can not keep his eyes open more then a minute or two but still tries to talk but it not coming out understandable. He asked Millie and Art if they know where to bury him. Millie said this was the best he's been since Thursday. That shocks me.
We just saw him two weeks ago at Frank's wake he was same old normal Whitey.
Please keep him in you thoughts and prayers.
