My first cousin Learnon was someone I truly looked up to. I guess you could say my hero. Once when I was only a toddler his mom, my god-mother, showed me some of his drawings. I was floored that he was such a great artist. Someone related to me could draw like that! At one point he worked in a department store as a salesman. I remember how smoothly he strode across the floor and communicated with customers. He was such a class act and Iwanted to follow suit. And he always made sure he looked his best when he stepped out. He was such a sharp dresser. Sometimes the little things people do stick with you for life. I remember he was the first man I'd ever seen comb his beard. Now every time I comb mine I think of him. And he was extremely smart about anything you wanted to talk about. I couldn't wait to go to college because of how proud he was of going to FAMU. I followed suit. My cousin had his health issues but you'd never know it looking at him. He looked like the epitome of a healthy person. I already miss my cousin but I am glad the pain of the last few months is no longer with him. He suffered horribly but now he has found rest home with the Lord and those who went before him. I will miss him. God rest his soul...my cousin...my hero.
