Not sure what to say?

I was so saddened to hear of Deonta. My heart is heavy and my heart goes out to you and family. I remember when my son would come to spend summers every year with his Grandmother. And how those two would play together by riding bikes and playing on their game systems, even sharing a few birthday parties, just simply having fun. As they got older, their connection lessened. But last summer while we were visiting, Deonta came over and they were talking and laughing for a good while until dark,...

I give my heart to you Marshall Family for staying strong and well put together in times of need! May God Bless yall family!

My condolences to The Marshall Family and Friends...
