Vantil and I went to Capital’s NAD Trip in Detroit in 2018. I had known him before but the three days we spent together is unforgettable. His wit, intelligence, sense of humor, confidence lit up the audience and I learned so much from him. He is special and I highly admired the sense of security I felt from him. I feel honored to have spent time with Vantil. Death ends a life but not a relationship, particularly with Vantil.
