My heart goes out to the entire family during this difficult time. I remember meeting Tazjon when he was a little boy and he came to visit us in Montreal. He was sweet, kind and so cute. He must have only been 7 around that time. Mark you are definitely in our thoughts and prayers, may Tazjon Rest In Peace!

Heartfelt condolences to the family and friends. I remember when Tj was born and his first trip to Jamaica as a baby. He was such a joy to watch. The pride and joy of his mom and grandma. Gone too soon, but forever in our hearts. Continued prayers for comfort and strength.

I had the pleasure of being in many classes with TJ. He always had a smile on his face, and his willingness to learn was admirable. I always aspired to have the work ethic he had, and the joy he had learning about chemistry! Sending all my love to family and friends. You will be missed TJ!

My sincere condolences to the family in this time of bereavement. May God give you the strength to continue on until the day when He returns and you will again see and meet up with your loved one.

To : Sonia , my daughter, on behalf of my grandson, you have done a marvelous job with TJ. And may Heaven record your name in the Lamb's Book of Life.

I once knew a little "fellah" who stole my heart from the start, and now he's gone with it without even saying "Thanks for having me over Grandma", "I have to leave now, stay safe", "don't open your door to strangers". "Goodbye, Grandma, love you", as he usually did, and without my "permission", he just left me just like that, but maybe he "whispered" that he will take it to Heaven when next we meet.
Yes, I am not sure where all the years have gone, there's one thing I know, TJ, my first grandchild, has been the sweetest blessing God gave to me. He has been my Bright and Shining Armor, the Shining Star in my life, and the warmth of my heart, my treasured possession. A joy to be with from the start.

And although he is gone out of our lives much too quickly, I am thankful and very grateful to God for lending him to spend 30 years with us. We expected him to go but not for another 30 years. What a great opportunity we had to have known him as our child, and he certainly turned out to be that man that I know he would become.

I Thanked him for the laughter, the fond memories when I watched him "Naaming up my fried dumplings" and swiping up my "brown gravy and mashed potatoes with Vegan Meat.. Oh yeah, he said I should open a restaurant and called it Grandma's Place" ... who's to tell maybe I will one day.

HE WILL BE FOREVER BE IN OUR HEART, A LIFE-TIME OF LOVE AND FOND MEMORIES.

Rest In Peace my sweet boy, TJ. See you in that Great Getting Up morning.
Grandma Fay.

My condolences to Tazjon's family and friends. We were blessed with having him join us in the Heritage Park family during his middle school years. He is so fondly remembered.

I’ve known Tazjon since I was in grade 9. He was the most polite, friendly, down to earth and supportive person I’ve had the honour to know.
What I respected and loved about him most was that he always followed my track and field career from high school, to when I attended university in America, to even after university. He always knew how I was performing and where I was going to compete next.
He was the most intelligent person I knew. Now and then when I need assistance with my homework in high school, or University biology or chemistry he was there to help me.
It divesting that he’s gone so young. But God had other plans for him, that I can’t question.
