…Lord I come, on behalf of my brother…

The Flyy-Life’s annual In Memoriam piece is perhaps the most challenging to produce each year. As you begin to research and prepare; you’re filled with an overwhelming aura of hurt, loss and reverence. Taking on the position of being the honor guard of someone’s memory requires a sense of solemnity, respect, gentleness and perfection of execution. Many would argue this would be most difficult for honoring  just one person. Well this year we celebrate the lives of 39. As a team, we here at The Flyy-Life are driven by the fundamental truth that regardless of demographic or popular standing within the community; often, those whom make up a part of the carpet of our lives and time, once the last RIP is posted on social media, are soon forgotten. We believe their investiture into our community can not only be commodified, but they were indeed of lasting value that will not go extinguished. That’s our endowment as a community. When one of our angels fall, we reach down, pick up their banner, and carry on. Religious doctrine teaches us “to live is Christ and to die is gain”; so I’m confident they have indeed inherited something far greater than what we could ever fathom on Earth. But it is most imperative that until we meet again, we ensure their Earthly light never diminishes. We exhausted all due-diligence to be as far-fetching as possible, but we realize there are some who may have been mistakenly omitted. We honor them too! As you proceed through, take a moment of your time to whisper a prayer for the fallen and be thankful for your blessings…Thy Will be Done…Deo
