Repost via @therealjohntaaustin: "I post at least twice a year about you, but I lose track of the actual times that I think of & remember you, your humor, your work ethic, your attempts to learn ATL slang (which were successful) & the way you seemed to light up any environment you entered. Keep saving my place by the 🔥 I’ll be along when I can.
