You were my big cousin and i looked up to you. You and my older bro Arthur and my other cousin Lenon (Jr) were my male role models growing up on Olivia Lane. I couldnt understand why we couldnt look at your body at your closed coffin funeral but i remember the sound of the Trumpet in the distant and everyone feeling sad. I asked God let say hello to you and i hope you heard me in Jesus cause i do believe you believe. Take care and you are not forgotten Jr. Love Little bro.
