I remember running into you 25 years and you told me to bring my son to get his hair cut. For 2 years that child acted like he was getting his neck cut off. You were so patient with him and if someone in the shop complained, you would actually get onto them. Afterwards, you would give him a Kleenex, a sucker and shake the hand of the 2 year old. Thank you for being his first barber. Rest easy.

The late, Dr. Myles Munroe Sr. reference โ€œthe cemetery being the riches place on eartthโ€, because people die without fulfilling their purpose. This is not the case with you DePorres. As a associate, Iโ€™ve watched you since the early 80โ€™s, youโ€™ve always been a major influence in the lives of anyone close enough to get a word. The world extinguished a true light in your transition as heaven received it. Blessings soldier, Job well done. The world will not be the same because you lived. To your family, hold up the legacy of this great man in pride always. You were blessed to have that type of love and influence in your Kingfom bloodline, always treasure your milliseconds. Now, take up the torch and continue the path...itโ€™s already laid. My family is praying as you mourn the transition.
