Evans Pierre, RIP

Tragic deaths often lead to people exaggerating their relationship with the recently deceased, thus unduly and distastefully drawing attention to themselves. With that in mind, it would stretch credulity to say that Evans and I were friends. We were briefly co-workers and socially acquainted. I was very fond of him, and he was nothing but kind and generous to me, so I can only hope the feeling was mutual.  

His life ended tragically for reasons I will not speculate upon, and in such an awful way that I will not recount here. Suffice it to say that I was very saddened to hear of his death, and my heart goes out to our many mutual friends who are struggling with his passing.

Evans Pierre, RIP.

He was a good man. Sometimes that's all one can say.

I worked with Evans too. He was truly a lovely man who would always bring a smile to your face . . . I hope he is resting in peace.
