"for CHICO" -
My Tribute Video To
By Bret "The Threat" Newton
It's taken me a little bit of time before I wanted to work on
this. Diego was a good friend of mine and it's still hard to
believe he's gone. I want to just go up to the gym and hang out
like we used to. Some may say those days are gone, but with all
the memories and photos I've taken of Diego along the way, all I
need to do is look back at what I've shot. That's when I can
easily remember and see him entering the gym with his wide smile
and chipped front tooth. Laughing and telling a few jokes while
tying his shoes, then getting his hands wrapped. Even telling
his mother, "Ok, time to go to work.", before getting off the
phone with her.
I'll save my stories and his jokes for another time however.
Until then, I hope you enjoy seeing Diego as I have, from the
first time I met him just 4 years ago, in a photo tribute video
that contains some of my best shots of one of the best men I've
ever known. This is for you "Chico".
