Man Cutty Nell Life is so weird without you. I think about you everyday, and everyday I try to understand but I can't. I got you tatted on my arm, and I can't wait til I get your face put on. I know you are always with me, I remember when we were together when the earthquake hit. We was scared out of our minds cuz the world was shaking. Thats how I feel everyday like Im living through a eternal earthquake, I love you C-Money I'm so happy you got a change to hold my daughter when she see's your pics on myspace she remembers you, and points to your pic. I know you are in heaven. I remember when we saw each other on the 1st day of school at adams, we hugged like we aint never seen eachother before, It was that love that you had for people, especially family. When I thouch down in heaven I know thats going to be our first day of adams again. I know that you accepted Jesus, it was around the same time I did.

Peggy & Family,
From my family to yours (a connection that began 40 years ago) just know that you are held in our thoughts and prayers. Although words are far from adequate enough, this is to express our deepest and most heartfelt sympathy. I know your faith is strong and I hope that it can bring some measure of comfort during the difficult days ahead.

Peggy McGee Walker and Family,
May God continue to keep you grounded in your faith, and may you and your family find peace in this hour of need. It has been many years since I have seen you, but you have always been someone I considered as a friend.
I pray for you now because as you said there are truly no words anyone can say in this situation.
I pray for your loved ones and you and I know that God has made a place for Carlnell in Heaven.
Keep the faith and know that Carlnell has no more Earthly worries.
Much love always,

My prayers and deepest sympathy to the entire Walker Family...Carlnell..a beautiful soul..a heart winning personality...more than just a man...I remember watching him grow up as a child at Nystrom (before he transfered to Stege) He and my lil brother Mack and another lil guy.. Maurice... would always play together from like pre-kinder until he transferred. My brother and I were just sharing those memories about a week before I read the news about his death..My brother was telling me he hadn't saw him in years...and figured that he probably went off to college and made a success of his life..cause we remembered that his momma (Peggy Walker) didn't play when it came to Carlnell and school. I wish we had gotten a chance to see him before a tragedy like this would bring him home...Walker Family...I pray peace and healing to your souls during this tragic loss. Nelly..we love him soooo much...I wish I could have told him that personally...Rest in Peace beloved...he will truly be missed.

I will always remember him for all the memories that he has left me with from the sleep overs to saturday night parties. Carlnell is one that will never be forgotten, my heart hurts for you the family and for him, I wish it did not have to be this way, but just know heaven will never be the same since he arrived. Carlnell I love you and I will always hold your precious memories with me til the end of time, watch out for me and tell Buddy I said hello. Til we meet again Carlnell love ya

May god bless The Walker Family in this time of need. Carnell and I have followed eachother to every school from Stege Elementry to El Cerrito high and even battling pop warner football Berkeley Cougars vs Richmond Steelers.

May God be with Carlnell and his family to guide them through this great tragedy. I always knew Carlnell as a very well mannered respectable person who I know for a fact did not deserve this. My love and prayers go out to the Walker family. May Carlnell rest in peace.

My heart aches for you and your family in the loss of your beloved son. My deepest condolences for your loss. May Carlnell rest in peace.

I never got the chance to meet you in person, but I do remember hearing your voice. You were the funniest person I've ever met. I regret not getting to know you better, and not pushing further to meet you in person so that I could hug and kiss you. You were well loved, and will be missed forever.

I want the family to know that my heart goes out to you, and especially to Mrs. Peggy Walker. I send my deepest condolence to everyone in this wonderful family, and please know that he was and still is truly loved even from a distance.
