Man, i dont know where to start. Ever since i remember, you have always been there. I remember everything like it was yesterday from The Flats in the complex, same school and the day you left for Canada. Its hard trying to accept that the end has come so early. Rest in eternal peace bro.

Oh man, those FIFA and Battlefield days, those were the good times, we had nothing but we connected through something as silly as video games. You introduced me to most of the things I like right now. I remember blasting Fab and Game 24/7. I hate how it ended, but the good times will never be forgotten. Rest easy big bro.

Where to begin my distant relative....(as we would call each other because of the Nas & Damian Marley album) it all started off in my final year of high school at lakeshore catholic 2008-09 when one day after getting lunch i was walking in the cafeteria and i seen Tinashe sitting there alone so i walked up and asked him if i could sit with him and i asked him if he liked rap music and he said “oh yeah” and ever since it’s been history, we clicked instantly we had so many things in common it was amazing, well.... he told me he was a Panthers fan and i told him i was a Steelers fan but that’s our only indifference and i will always have a spot for them in my heart now, it was great just starting off with knowing that we both liked the same music or a funny time like when you fell asleep during our game of madden and the computer played and we thought it was you the whole time hahaha and can never forget our fetish we shared together for nice hats, clothes and shoes, we always had to look fresh, there’s lots i can think of about him and about us and or everyone who had fun with him but the most important thing i will miss is his presence and his smile and character, he was definitely one in a million and beyond that and i always felt joy around him we shared a special bond that nothing can break and now that life’s internal it will never be broken, he’s definitely one of the best humans to ever touch the earth, i am blessed, Love you brother noir-paws !!

Tinashe -Zazu my heart is broken. A part of me has been ripped. The gap you left will be hard to fill. I miss you and I will forever love you. That priceless smile will always be in my memories.
April 2nd, 2019 is the most difficult day in our family's life.
To those of you who knew Tinashe , you are already aware of the type of person he was. My son has been often described as a gentle soul. He was pure of heart and had great sensitivity for the world around him. He had a way with people that made them feel comfortable around him and infected others to gravitate towards him. Tinashe exuded kindness and pulled generosity and altruism out of everyone he touched.
To say Tinashe was polite, it is an understatement. Since his childhood years he displayed respect and care for all around him.
Tinashe always spoke about his desire to live a simple life . He remained humble till the last day of his life.
I wish and hope that the Angels above will watch over you till we meet again.
Loving you always

Before Zazu left for Canada we shared a lot of great memories in the avenues at our complex . He literally made me a part of his family . Every other weekend I was at his humble aboard and mom took care of us all . All we ever cared about was hiphop music and PlayStation . We had nothing but we were all happy around each other . The Big Homie Blessing would come through often and check us and put us in our place when we fell out of line . As much I went awol and we weren’t in touch for years , all these memories were always carved in my heart . It would have been great to celebrate the birthday that we share Zazu . The best way I can pay homage to you and our friendship is to be the best I can be for you and succeed in life in your honor . Rest well old buddy ....

Babe, i can’t even begin to express just one memory. We have 9 years of memories , even though we drifted for a while I always knew in my heart you were the one I loved , it was always you. And even though we wanted to take things slow you reminded me daily of how I should be loved , and that I will never forget . Thanks for being my rock in some of the hardest times , and thank you for loving me more than I thought was possible . You will forever be in my heart and always on my mind . Love you always and forever , foo 💞.
