Sorry to hear of the passing of White Could. We only knew him from Carollina Auction in York, SC. He was a generous man with his selling and we enjoyed his singing also.
Praying for the family to find comfort and peace during your time of grief.

So very sorry to hear about the passing of White Cloud. He was loved by many and he also mentored many with his great wisdom in the auction business. The auction circuit has certainly lost a pioneer and icon! RIP White Cloud.
