Had the privilege this week of celebrating the life of an exceptional man, supremely talented designer and dear friend who passed away suddenly and far too young. In the funny and poignant farewells, this colorful, charming, exceedingly talented gentleman was remembered by family, friends and colleagues with tiny tears, joyful laughter and infinite love. It was the ultimate special event — truly befitting a genuine legend of the special events industry. I join his many admirers in thanking his family for sharing their beloved husband and father with us. He touched so many lives and his memory is an inspiring reminder to live fully and love fully, for you never know what tomorrow holds.
