I was one of Yusuf's caretakers near the end of his life. I've taken care of a lot of people over the years but Yusuf was a very special man. In the short time I knew him he made a huge impact on my life. And he was the kindest man I have ever met in my life. I'm tearing up a bit thinking of his hugs.
I didn't only see him at work where I cared for him. He invited me out to watch him play at a Durham book store and I was delighted to go. Even so late in his life he still had a passion for jazz, music and life that many younger people will never have. I will always have a special place in my heart for him.
