My condolences to his entire family. I met him at H.E. Charles Elementary and he told me to never forget who I was, where I came from & with my smile I would conquer the world!! Every time I had to speak in public or felt nervous about meeting someone I would remember his words & smile.. I felt so empowered from that moment on, sometimes we don't realize how powerful our words are to a child and that is something I have cherished through out my life. I thank you for blessing me with your kind words and laughter.
