I keep seeing your name in these headlines bro, but it seems unreal to me.... like, I just cannot believe you gone !!!! I love you..... I’m really broken & saddened by the fact they did this to you SMMFH !!!!!"

Appreciate the gift of life & conquer the day. Sometimes it takes work, dedication & can be time consuming but if you start now, tomorrow you will be one day closer to achieving your dreams," he says. "Nothing on earth is unattainable & there is no height we cannot reach. [...] I love & believe in you..... look yourself in the mirror & recognize that you are pure GOLD, then go get it !!!"
