I am so sorry for your loss. He was a great young man. He was one my employee's at Eby and he use to bust his back for me. I remember talking about music with him and we would have conversations about life. I remember when he got his new car and he was so excited to tell me about. May he rest in peace.


So sorry to hear this. He was such a great kid and I always enjoyed him. My condolences Krystal
