I remember the first time I met Sutton. It was at "Partial." When I walked into the building he was standing there greeting the students as they arrived. My first impression was what an intimidating man. However, after I got to know him I discovered that he had the most kindest heart. Sutton will definitely not be forgotten. I will always cherish our time together. RIP my dear friend.
