You were the oldest and the one that I looked up to. We shared so much together. As a big brother you used to pick on me and make me cry, but through all of that we were the best of friends. I couldn't wait to see you whenever you would fly home and we would go to the malls and hang out. I could always count on you making me stronger and for getting me involved in soccer. You would always encourage me to do my best at everything. You would always pick on me, and I know it was your way of making me stronger and showing that you loved me. Big Brother is what you were to me, someone I could talk to about anything. You could always find ways to make me laugh. I am really going to miss all the fun things we used to do and the time that we spent together, whether on the phone or riding around. I will make sure to do the best I can at everything you taught me. I'm going to miss you but I'll never forget you. Still hurting and it won't go away its just hard for me just to make this pain ease down. It just keeps hurting the memories, the time, the laughs, and your hugs just made the time I spent you so much fun and heart warming. I try to not show my pain but it just hurts even more I want one last hug and one last good laugh, I know I can't and its just hurting.

I met Tro when I was dating his grandfather. He always made me feel like family. In 2019, we took Tro and my 2-year old grandson to the Texas State Fair. As some of you know, car seats and strollers have changed over the years. His grandfather and I were struggling with these items. Tro jumped in and helped us with a smile. I can only imagine what he was thinking 😄 Tro also won a prize and gave it to my grandson. We had a good time!

I will always remember him as a kind and loving young man with a smile that could light up a room. We will miss you, Tro!

Lifting all of us up in prayer 🙏🏽

Maurice was such a special person. I remember him always making me laugh. We went to school together and had classes together and I can honestly say it was never a dull moment around him. He was kind, loving, and I even remember him to be a little charming here and there☺️ I miss him. What a tremendous loss. My heart aches for Jessica and Ashlyn and Jairen. I can’t imagine their pain. But I believe Maurice is in a better place. This is all a part of His plan. Maurice is safe now with his father. He’s no longer with us but he’ll always be in our hearts. I will cherish all of our memories forever. ❤️
