    • So no one is allowed to report the news anymore? They aren’t showing the video as it states in their article. It just shows how ignorant and how you just jump to conclusions.

  8. To news station, radio station and ignorant people reporting false stories. My brother was loved by many…. After the last few days… I know my brother gave others positive encouragement and inspiration to many. My brother made a huge impact in this community and not by his loss but by HIS GOOD DEED. He was not a bad kid, nor was he on drugs. There is so much more to my brother tragic loss. He knew he was loved by us. We had helped him till the very end. But out of respect for my brother and the love he had.. I promised him I was done and would not speak of his reasons for his behavior. Forgiveness is a gift you give to people as GOD has forgiven us. What is done is done. We have accepted that he is up in Heaven. And we will be there for baby JJ as we were there for him. Words can never be enough to express our gratitude to everyone that showed their support and assisted with making his farewell memorable. If it’s one thing I ask is for people to reflect on… Words can make or break a person. Be kind to one another and remember to bring joy and life to each other…… #40 #loveyoubabybrother #lovedbymany #loveoneanotherwithapureheart
