I met Lamont over a year ago, and he brightened my world up every time I got to see him. Always called me “Little Lady”, and would sit and talk to me at all the gatherings. He was a bright soul, and one intelligent man! I will never forget the first time I met him, I had on ripped jeans and the first thing he tells me, is how they shoot at the pants to create the holes. He was a funny man, and he sure impacted my life.
