Almighty God, we remember this day before thee thy faithful servant Ken Professor Philmore; and we pray that, having opened to him the gates of larger life, thou wilt receive him more and more into thy joyful service, that, with all who have faithfully served thee in the past, he may share in the eternal victory of Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigned with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. “They that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they will soar as with wings of eagles.” Isaiah 40:31…RIP Professor Philmore
To Family and Friends … May you all be lifted up during this difficult time and know that God is with you all. “The Pan World has lost a Grant

Thank you Hollis for a job well done and needed for the world of Pan enthusiasts like me, as well as "lovers" of the Professor. The content was amazing, spiritual, political and social. Peace.

This is the second attempt I am making to view this video. Thanks to When Steel Talks for acknowleging my efforts

for the videographic posting. During my first attempt my emotions took the better of me ... I just could not handle it. . You see I have been covering his wakes from day one to the actual cremation. Pro and I go way back from the days at Pleasatville Senior Comprehensive School where I was a teacher cum manager of the school's steelband along with Mr Archie and Mr. Lee Mack. Pro replaced Butters as arranger of the band. 

Pro was responsible for grooming many students from Pleasantville Senior who today have become top pannists and arrangers accross the globe. Some of them include Liam Teague, Darren Sheppard, Roger Charles, Curtis Sleepy Marcele, Leon Foster Thomas, Wade Austin, Blubber, Sean Ramsey to name a few.

Pleasantville Senior at one time was the only band representing South Trinidad in Port of Spain for Junior Panorama  and Music Festival. God knows He's gone to a better place. Amen.
