My nephew,

I've always prided myself on my ability to articulate my thoughts and feeling, but since your ascension, I've been without words. Since we first met at your 3rd birthday, You chose to accept me and love me as your Tio. That showed me that love is unconditional and I'm grateful to have had a chance to love and be loved by you, my nephew. Thank you Teeky, I love you mijo. I will never forget you and I will carry your memories until we meet again.

The first time I held you in my arms in the hospital, I was pregnant with your cousin Kaitlyn. You were the first one to make me feel like I can be a mom. You were the cutest little kid with the coolest hair and perfect smile!
Then you grew up and became this really cool trendy teen and young adult. I was super impressed with how creative you were! I bragged to my friends about you making your own Unique clothing. (You know who got those skills from? Lola Merce). I remember the last time I saw you was at my work in the post office. You were mailing one of your jeans you just sold. And it was during the Pandemic so I was pretending to do an airhug. But you asked my coworkers if you can give me a real hug cause I was your auntie! ☺️ I was gonna run out there and hug you.

I’m gonna miss you Tariq! I gonna miss your smiling face at our family parties. Say hi to my dad and everybody up there with you. 🙏

❤️ Love Always,
Auntie San, Uncle Glenn, Kait,
Leland, and Lucy

What a brilliant person you were. I didn't know you really well, but then again I knew really well thru Merced. All the things you have done and what you had been working on were amazing. My heart breaks for Jess, Ava and Nei. You are truly going to be miss! Please give Merced a big hug! RIP Tariq!
Love Margie Squier

You lit up the room my friend. I’m going to miss your bright eyes and smile. I’m going to miss our talks in the shop so much. Fashion, music, life; we could go on about anything. I wish I could have known you longer, and that we could have gotten our chance to make some art together. All the love in the world
