In memory of Dickie Sanders


I read today from Terry Adams that Dickie Sanders has passed away. So I dug up the only footage I have from him. Voodoo 2006. You can read about his relationship with Terry on his site.

It is a very sad day.

It's bad enough to lose a friend, it's even worse to lose them in this manner.
I lost my best friend the same way a few years back. :(

RIP Dickie Sanders.

Yea just saw this. Never met the guy but he seemed like a nice person, not to mention he was talented as well. With something like a community this small, stuff like this hits hard.

Damn... condolences to everyone who had this guy as a part of their lives. He seemed like the real deal as far as friends go.

In Memory of Dickie Sanders - Remixed


Today I received a personal message from Terry Adams asking if I could turn Dickies Sanders footage into a DVD that he could hand out at the funeral. This was requested by The Sanders Family. I didn’t hesitate to say yes. The only thing I wanted was do a little bit more. Chris Balles reminded me of Dickie’s appearance on TV. Fat Tony had some great photos of Dickie as well. So I included these elements along with closing words from Terry Adams. Please Leave a comment here on vimeo for the Sanders Family. It will be greatly appreciated.
