As people, we are a universe. Riddled with complexities, we hold joy, and pain, light and dark, compassion, and anger, love and fear, hopes for tomorrow's sunshine and histories of cracks fallen through. Filled to the brim with all the intricacies that make up a great man, a great human, Brent "Randy" Stevenson died too young. He was murdered on November 07, 2017 in the streets of Boston. We will remember Randy for the tenderness in which he cared for his daughters Wynter and August. We will remember Randy for the way he brought light into any room he walked into, made you laugh so hard an inhaler was a necessity. We remember Randy for his dreams of becoming a comedic rock-star like Kevin Hart, his aspiration of rewriting the single stories society has prescribed to the people in his community through art. We remember the way he would show late to holiday parties, but he would always show up. We remember his contagious smile. We remember the way he always kept it real, even if we were not ready to hear it. We remember Randy because he was a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, a father, a life partner. We remember Randy because at his core he wanted a better life for all who came after him. Most importantly, we remember Randy because he was a human born worthy of love, and belonging, and respect and compassion, and dignity, the way any human is.
