I have known Dip all of my life. He came up in the projects where my grandmother Alma Jefferson and his family became close. He treated my mom Jeanie and Father Tom like family. Dip was there for whatever he was called for by our family. If there was a big fight, it was at dips house. If there were movies out, Dip had the video tape and would make copies for everyone. Dip was one of then coolest men to grow up watching. I am saddened by his passing and on behalf of the Jefferson and Moore families, we wish to give our condolences and pray for the family. May God wrap his arms of comfort around you all and may we all learn the life lesson of being down for everyone from a soul like his.
