He brought me flowers to the airport anytime I flew in to visit and always watched me go through the terminal until we cant see each other anymore.  I always cried.

He has always been genuine.  He admits his mistakes and willing to talk things out and make them right.

    Hands down this was one of the BEST Weddings I’ve ever DJ’d . We didn’t know each other but we all were able to vibe great for a wonderful event. The level of celebration of the guest are ALWAYS a clear sign of their joy for the Bride and Grooms union and the support was REAL ! Events like this sets the standard all around the board. Thanks again for allowing me to be apart of it all. #DjBabyFaceWilliams/ http://www.djbabyfacewilliams.com
