The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life.” According to reports that’s exactly what he did, lived every day like it was his last. 

He is known to have dressed every first lady since Jackie Kennedy. He also made custom dresses for Lupita Nyongo, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sandra Bullock, RHOA’s Marlo Hampton, Michelle O’Bama, etc..
