Friends remember "Silky" Sullivan.
On a day when you might expect the tears to flow, a Beale Street style home-going celebration of life had more than just "Irish eyes smiling." Hundreds lined a parade route less than an hour after funeral services for legendary Beale Street impresario Thomas "Silky" Sullivan had concluded in East Memphis. Tourists who'd never met the affable and flamboyant club owner earnestly joined those whose lives he'd become an integral part of for years in happily commemorating a man who relished in bringing people together.
