Today I light a candle for my best friend and mentor Gary Warnett who died on Wednesday afternoon; his light will shine on us forever. Myself and many across the world are heartbroken from this immeasurable loss. Gary is the reason that I am doing what I do today, he dedicated so much time, knowledge and nurturing to me (and many others) and for that, I am forever grateful. With his help I grew for a sneaker/skate rat to the ’successful’ independent woman I am today, he was so patient and kind with a trust you would never question.
Gary the genius, our google, wiki, encyclopaedia, the most knowledgeable, nobody could or will contextual what we do in CULTURALLY better than you and link all the dots, you immortalised everything we love in your worlds. The most unique person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, a man of the people, never condescending, ALWAYS positive ALWAYS funny, ALWAYS banter and ALWAYS a friend first. I love you with all my heart it was a honour to know you, I will treasure ever single moment and memory, big bro forever, I promise we will celebrate your LIFE. Rest In Paradise. Forever. Amazing G
