On Friday July 15, the physical world lost an amazing man. We lost a brother, a friend, a dj, a son, a confidant, a professional stylist, a life partner, a drinking buddy, a cookie chef, Mr. Inside Joke, an uncle, a man of wisdom and a SMILE that could light a zillion candles.
Kibwe E. Lee was all that AND more. He was there for EVERYONE and anyone through heartache and heart happiness. You could always count on him for that missing thing that sometimes you didn't even know you needed.
While physically he is not here, he will always be here with us in our hearts.
"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up does rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend." Red - Shawshank Redemption
While your life may seem drab and unbearable because you can not physically connect with him, remember that he lives in our hearts and souls forever. He lives in our thoughts and prayer and in our laughs that we share with others that will fall on the ears of passerby as we spread the awesomeness of such an amazing person. PLEASE take the time to live your life the Kibwe way. Laugh just because. Dance super awkward. Challenge yourself. Make your mark. Live without ceasing, even after you are gone.
The proceeds of this shirt will be donated to the foundation that is being created in his name. It is the Live Life The Kibwe- Kibwe E. Lee Memorial Fund
Oscar Wilde said " To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist". And Ki was one of those RARE people who lived!!!!
