“Such a beautiful human being, kind, loving, and gentle,” Knowles-Lawson added in her tribute. “RIP Craig we love you!”

Adams’ family told local news station KTRK that he was not vaccinated against COVID-19.

Remembering her late friend, Knowles-Lawson said in an interview with the outlet, “If you knew Craig, he just always had a smile on his face.”

“Always was positive,” she said. “I’ve never heard him say one negative thing about anybody, even when they deserved it. He was just a good, honest guy.”

In the wake of Adams’ death, the House of Deréon fashion designer urged those who are eligible for the vaccine to get inoculated.

“There’s been so many people that I’ve known personally — and loved — that have passed away,” she told KTRK. “There is a vaccination out there. We’ve got to get vaccinated so we can protect our loved ones.”
