Sending prayers of comfort at this difficult time. Cecile Carson, October 14, 2019 Please accept my condolences. My son was killed by Carrollton without body cam. They said the same thing. Complied then didn't. If you would like to reach out please do. I know they fabricate situations. I feel the extreme pain that you feel. May he rest in love and peace.
Natalie hickson, October 14, 2019 Chris, we both know hard times aren't hard to find. When I caught up with you recently, at least we were able to laugh about something each time though. We laughed at how lucky we were to go to a brand new high school, how chasing girls had turned into chasing women, and we laughed just knowing we weren't alone when we brushed up against the edge. Love that smile. I know you're still wearing it. Rest in peace. Matt Riley, October 14, 2019 Steve and Family. So sorry to hear of this great loss for your family. Our family has had to endure many losses this past year and my heart knows your grief. I am so very sorry for the loss of your handsome son. Prayers for you and all that loved him.
