  1. I remember meeting you as a teenager in Brooklyn. I even got to share a table with you and your sweet mother. It was such an honor to meet you. We are so proud of your achievements and how you waved the Guyanese flag high and proud. You were the first to do this in a world class ring. Rest In Power Until Risen, MY Brother.
