Tributes, praise and final goodbyes have started pouring in as news spread today that beloved member of the House of Garçon, Willow Navajo Garçon had passed away suddenly on a flight to Paris.  Many in the community had just seen him this past weekend at a ball in NYC.  Willow wasn't just a force here in the states he was also very well known internationally in the Paris Ballroom Scene.  

In a facebook post his Frank Garçon(Overall Eastcoast Father) wrote:  

"The House of Comme Des Garcons mourns the lost of Father Willow Navajo Garçon who passed away unexpectantly on his flight back to Paris after attending the House of Mugler Ball.

Willow’s final memories on this earth were about ballroom—he spent some of his last moments having a joyous time with his Garcon family for Mugler Ball weekend.

As the House of Comme Des Garcons mourns and makes sense of this tragic lost, we send deepest condolences to Willow’s initimate circle of family and friends including his partner Kennedy Quarterback Mugler, Wickid Garçon and child Wolkoff Blvck Garcon, whom he had just helped to walk in the grand prize face category.

The be absent from the body is to be present with God—we take bittersweet joy this morning knowing that our dear brother Willow has flown to his heavenly home."

An even more touching post came from his partner Kennedy Quarterback who saw him just before he boarded his flight.  His message has been translated from its original French text:

"We left at New York airport yesterday, you in one flight me in another, thinking to meet in Paris you waiting for me because you had a direct flight and me with stopover, at the airport you just hug me Because you were cold and you didn't want to give me the cold, you took my head and you glued it against your chest and you hit my neck and you say good flight bb, I sent you in the morning a message to know If TT was fine, and the no answers, there a knowledge present in the mm flight just tell me you made a discomfort, I'll send you a message my last message or I tell you be strong bb don't leave me I love you come on! Get ready!!
But it was too late, my baby left me, I wasn't there for him in his last moments, I wasn't with him on the plane, I couldn't give him a big hugs, I didn't mm I was able to say you in front one last time, he left alone, I stayed at my stopover in Manchester waiting to come back to see you one last time, I will see you one last time for still in the days to come... I Went to New York for the Mugler Ball with you a week, it was great, with your two kids, me, your debut in your new house boys, you went to accompany me for me. We left together and I'm going home alone, my heart torn life is unfair, I'm angry with this life.. I close my eyes and force so it's a nightmare but no...
It's just horrible, the pain is worse than tt what I could imagine... you were still there for me, in the ups the downs I still was your bb your big bb muscle, my life will be more the same, sleep Without you, hugs, your smell, your pajamas, your kisses, your advice, your advice, your customs, our videos evenings, everything, you, I miss you already, you were waiting for me, you would love me, you understood me, you understood me, you understood me Know that from the top you watch and you will fly on me, fly and wherever you are stay ready from me and your loved ones, we lost a golden person, I lost my bibou as I called, I love you and I will still love you my angel"
