Dr. Kimbrough has shared the last poem his son Steven wrote noting it has given family and friends strength and that a choral setting of the poem will be sung during the funeral tomorrow.

My Family

Black is my brother,
Puerto Rican is my sister
Liberty is my mother,
God is my father,
My family, peace,
Our world, love,
For ever God shall reign on high,
In unison my sister,
In unison my bother,
My family in peace.

Words: Steven F. Kimbrough
