Cousin, Worsom Robinson Words cannot express how sad I am to hear of you passing. I already can hear you now saying girl what you crying for. I lived…. Man I am who I am because I was lucky to have been in your presence for weddings and many photo shoots. I was so honored that I was the first Makeup Artist that you would call to do all your models makeup. Your passion for photography was unmatched…. You were the coldest in the game, but guess what? Guess what set you apart from other photographers you’re ability to keep going even when you knew you didn’t feel up to it.. Also your originality… Though you may be gone, your spirit will forever be with us. Rest in eternal peace, dear cousin.” #worsom #bigguy #darius
