We grew up together, one block over. We went through Douglass and the 'Velt together. Bae Boy on 26th & Jefferson, me on 26th & Madison. I remember playing tackle football, together, and going swimming in Gleason Park and playing on the trip-state freeway when they were building it, and playing along 'the Swamp' before they built the freeway! Bae Boy always dressing sharp when we were in high school. He was a good guy. My condolences to his children.
