Samford remembers Lakim Young

The good folks at Storify gave me a way to place our example here on this free-hosted WordPress.org site. This works as an example.

But if you aren’t familiar with Storify I encourage you to check out how slick they look in their natural environment. How slick? Slick. Check out the original.

  12. I got the best news ever yesterday. Now today I am so saddened by the death if my mentee, Lakim Young. He passed in his sleep in his dorm room at Samford. He was an amazingly talented young man with so much promise. He was a sophomore theater/dance major and so loved by everyone. RIP LaKim. Please keep his family in your prayers.
  13. I’m shocked and saddened today by the loss of an awesome man. I knew Lakim for only a short time, when he acted in my films, and I remember him from dances and hangouts. He was someone I always knew to jump in to the pool of life when so many others were putting their toe in to check the temperature. He was the embodiment of the idea of living every day as if it were your last, and he had a true passion for dancing, theatre, and caring for others. He made everyone around him happier because of his presence, and he will be missed not only by me, but also his entire Samford community. My prayers are with the Young family. Heaven just had an amazing dancer join the party, and it gained an even better person.
  14. Today… Heaven gained an angel, Lakim Young you crazy dancer. It only took one look at you to know you were special. Lakim was always open minded and unfiltered, never afraid to let his mind be heard. He was an aspiring dancer and theatre man who knew how to put on the craziest faces and dance the most funkiest dances… You were a good man dude and a good friend. Make heaven your dance floor and take center stage, you’ve earned it. Because I know right now, you have that grin on your face laughing your laugh and everyone is greeting you with open arms. Rest well man, you’ll be remembered
  15. Saddened today by the loss of Lakim Young. I’ve met few people who were so beautifully & unapologetically themselves. You will be missed.
