We watched him grow into a brilliant stylist

Our big guy, so full life
He brought together so many people from different backgrounds
He taught us to live each day to the fullest.

Their untimely passings have left us missing our best friends. Their spirits will always be burning bright in our hearts. We know they are together doing hair, laughing and watching over us.
