Panda, you were my very best friend and number one confidant. i always knew when i was having a bad day or just wanted to have a conversation you were a phone call away. I remember staying in Havasu and I rented an Airbnb and i was staying by myself. i was so scared of someone coming in so i called you to help ease my anxiety. of course you were with Tyler and you two talked to me until 3 in the morning when i was finally tired enough to sleep. i will miss you more every day and i love you forever ❤️ -mama tut

Desiree, Arabella...I don't even have the right words that will comfort you fully. I never put two and two together to realize that Panda was your big brother, Ara. My most vivid memory of him was after a game (If I remember right, it could have been before the game). He was watching everyone else get food. The only reason I was there was to feed my boys...and when I realized he was not getting anything, I told him to get up and order whatever he wanted! He resisted at first, but realized he couldn't win against "mom." He gave me a huge hug, and thanked me more times than I could count. Then he told Bob (my oldest who graduated with him) how wonderful I was that he better be nice to me! haha From that point on, he always made sure to say Hi with a huge smile, and would give me a hug when he saw me. That was during their senior year. I am just so sorry beyond words. Let me know if you ever need anything!

Jamee... My heart is breaking knowing you are no longer with us.. It has been many years since you left island but I always look forward to sending you birthday wishes because I can never forget the day you were born. Your passing was a shock but I know that you are flying high with the angels and will always be watching over the ones you love. We will always love you and miss you terribly...May you rest in eternal peace ....

I remember first meeting baby Jamee when I was about 6 years old and being extremely jealous of him because he was so cute and everyone in our family was enamored with him. I was supposed to be the baby in the family! I eventually learned to love him because he was really cute and everyone in our family was happier because he was around.

To this day, my fondest memory of Jamee is listening to him have full conversations with the big kids aka me and his other aunts and uncles when he was just a toddler! I still remember telling my parents how amazing and smart Jamee was because he spoke like an adult not at all like your average toddler. Jamee was truly special from a younge age.

I’m still in shock about losing him. We are all blessed to have had the opportunity to know him. He will be dearly missed and remembered fondly by all his friends and family.

To put it simply, Jamee was the type of person to make light of any situation. His smile was contagious and no matter what was coming his way he always kept a great attitude. His intelligence and logic always seemed to bring complicated problems down to earth and there was never a time someone couldn’t confide in him. Panda was a genuinely loving person, and I will cherish all the memories we shared together.

You will be missed for your great support for Arabella at her gym meets. You made a definite memory for everyone to remember you by your cheers and sound effects. Sad you left so soon! God bless you all!
