Remembering Dez          

On Wednesday, November 24, 2010, Desmond Saunders-Newton, affectionately known as Dez, left this world. A tragic loss for all who knew him, a dear friend and mentor to so many, a husband, a father, a brother, a son, and so much more... Our hearts are heavy. Dez left his one-of-a-kind impression all over the world, with his brilliant mind, his warm heart and his contagious smile. Please share here how Dez left his impression on your heart, mind and soul with stories, pictures, memories, and thoughts, along with your prayers for his family, his wife Clarissa, his son Mounir, and his daughter Ayiana.

In support of Dez's most precious legacy, the Saunders-Newton Fund has been created for the current and future education of Mounir and Ayiana. Please visit to find out how you can help.

I never wrote before because it made me so sad. Today I saw your picture and all the times we talked and hung out came rushing back along with the tears. I miss you man. I graduated and you weren't there but Apriel was. I finally got rid of thug love three years later.

Damn I thought I could write you without crying but the years are just flowing and my heart hurts as if it was yesterday. I miss talking to you, I miss your insight and your spin on life. Man I miss you.
