My sweet Marsalis -
I've been staring at this screen for a couple hours now. My heart hurts. It doesn't feel real. From proposing to me every day of high school to multiple talent shows to you figuring out how to live stream our graduation so my dad could watch from Afghanistan, you have been the most amazing friend anyone could ever have & the very best person I've ever known. You've been my pianist, my back-popper, my rock, my comedian, my pep-talker, my bear-hugger, my random beat-boxer, my 3 AM texter, and my light when I felt most dark. I'll miss everything about you, including the way you belted MJ when you thought no one was there & the way you left sweet notes in my car for me to find after work. If you were here right now, you'd be wiping these tears & calling me silly. I know that you'll help me get through this. I love you cheesehead, so much & I will miss you for the rest of my life. I'm a better person having known you.
  • Praying for you

  • Is this real??? Please tell me no 😭😭😭😭😭

  • So sorry to hear this! Marsalis was such a sweet and kind soul! God bless him. I'll be praying for you and his family!

  • Your page has such an awesome energy! 💜💜

  • Noooo the good ones always die young. He will always be remembered.

  • Omg... smh he was so full of life. 😔 when is the funeral?

Happy 21st birthday to my sister & best friend. I’m glad I didn’t kill you with the telephone receiver that one time.

Marsalis -
Today my heart aches. Strangely, I heard a snippet of MJ's Billie Jean while I was out last night & I smiled because I felt you there. I love you. I miss you. Happy birthday to my favorite happy soul. Stay with me always.

The second picture is us on old people day during senior week in high school. He was highly invested in having a very convincing costume & stayed in the character of this grumpy, rickety old man for most of the day. The third picture is from the time that he found a video of Christina Aguilera & Brian McKnight singing Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas together.. he NEVER sang, not at school at least, I was always the singer between the two of us. But he told me he would sing it with me just to hear me sing her part. The fourth one is actually embarrassing, I had this weird episode of syncope at movies 278 one day & he heard about it.. that's what he had to say. 😂 for each of these sweet instances, there are 10 more just like them. These words & pictures are important bc they convey the essence of who he was - the very best friend anyone could hope for, every bit as fun & loving as he was selfless. He's shaped who I am & how I treat others. I'll never know a better person. Happy 23rd, Marsalis. Here's to you my love xoxo

Just a reminder that on Halloween 2007, Hannah proudly went to a church function as a person coming out of a blow-up donkey's ass. Happy Halloween 🌙

Can't believe my baby sister is 15 years old today.. everyone has siblings but not everyone has a kindred soul to share life with. I'm glad to have found both in you. Love you so much you angsty teen 💋

Finished product ✖️ ebony graphite on 18x24 inch bristol. The stats for this one are crazy - I went through TWO woodless solid graphite pencils, three large blending stumps & over 600 post-it notes drawing this. Graphite is so extra, I want my pens back 😅
All worth it though to achieve that glossy metallic gunmetal shine that's characteristic of heavy-handing soft graphites.
Hey, thanks for looking. 😄
