Desmond, the focus and passion you had for your research will one day point back to your humble beginnings in Ashdown, AR.

I recall many evenings hanging out under one of the few street lights we had in the neighborhood, talking about pursuing excellence, becoming more than what was expected of us (especially as African American males from a small town with a big heart), family, love, life and, yes, even belting out in an occasional song with my twin Joe, Cousin Bobby and some of the other fellows who enjoyed crooning.

You, Joe Ed, Olivia and I had a friendship that embraced a friendly competition that pushed each of us towards academic excellence and achievement. We dared each other to do more and be more; and you, my friend, excelled beyond that! Thank you for being a part of my life.

Rest in Peace, we'll see you on the other side & many blessings to your family.
