    As I watched the live stream today and passed by the church as the funeral was letting out I looked over at his grandmother’s house, the house he stayed at many, many times and the home his mother was raised in, my heart broke again for his family. I haven’t see Jeryll Don in many years but I remember him as a baby and all of us in the neighborhood thought the world of him. I have been keeping his family in my prayers and will continue praying for each of them.
