My husband and I were very sad to hear about the loss of De'Andre. While we didn't know him well, the few times that he was in our home, he was a joy, a well mannered and polite young man. May God be with you and your family during these devastating and trying times.

No words can truly express that way you made us feel! Our love was unconditional and Our hearts will mourn the absence of your body. We may never do some of the things that Father's and Son's do, however we did great things that will be every lasting in my heart. I'm proud of you for the things you accomplished in a short amount of time while on earth. I will seek to feel your presences in everything I do until my last breath. I know that with my last breath, it will be the same time I open my eyes and find you standing at the gates of heaven with open arm. Rest well and we Love You until the end of time!!!!
