In the wake of the transition of our dear brother and friend, Kendal Rivers; as we grieve, we find rest in knowing, Kendal lived a solid testimony and relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Kendal has made it home with God and his mother. Kendal had a heart for the youth and was a major influence in the lives of his five nephews and two nieces, KJ and Kyrie Rivers, Darian Wilhoit, Aaron Holtzclaw, Keovani Rivers, and Khloe and Kennedy Rivers. It was his focus to love and support his nieces and nephews as they grew into men and women of integrity and valor.

To honor Kendal’s legacy, a few of his friends have decided to start a scholarship fund for the purpose of collecting monetary donations which will aid in supporting his nieces and nephews as they continue their education. Our initial goal is to raise at least $1000 per child which will be used for college or higher education. If you would like to make a donation of any value, please Cashapp Samantha Cain at $SLJCain or Jordan Smith at $Capsmitt61. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Samantha at (804)436-7633 or Jordan at (757) 277-5017. Together, we will get through this. May we all continue to make Jesus Christ the center of our lives.

Kendal was a sweetheart and I still cannot accept that he is not with us . He had so much planned . We had multiple conversations about how much he wanted to be a dad, how he wanted to become an entrepreneur and so much more . He was such a family man, always supporting his nieces and nephews , brother and dad . A friend introduced us over a year ago and we clicked so well and became quick friends . I wanted so much to see him succeed and was so excited to see it happen. This hurts , I know he is at peace and resting with Jesus. Prayers for his family and close friends . Rest In Peace sweet friend . I’m honored to have met you and developed a friendship with you.

My heartfelt prayers and condolences to the Rivers family. May the peace and the strength of God comfort your hearts. Kendal and Kenny grew up with my sons in Summerwood, and I will always cherish the memories of him stopping by to play basketball in front of my home with the neighborhood kids. Remembering how his Mom taught him to Love God, and seeing how he became a trailblazer for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, winning souls for the Kingdom is priceless. Always a respectful, kind young man with a big smile. You finished your course and now you are at home with Father. Never forgotten. R.I.H Kendal
With Love ~ Mrs. Brayboy
