Arlene & Donald: I am so sorry for your lost and I will pray that GOD grant you peace during this time. The scriptures says in Psalms 30:5 - Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Also, Arlene and I served in the military together, and my eldest son name is Kijuan as well. GOD BLESSINGS!!!

I've known Kijuan since 8th grade & he was a sweetheart. We treated each other like sister n brother. I remember him coming to my house after school on Fridays so I can braid his hair, & our last convo. a few weeks ago was about the old days. "A sis, I think I paid you in advance for a hair do, you still owe me." Lol, I'm going to miss him like crazy. It was a pleasure to have had you as a friend.

S.I.P Mr Kijuan L.O Byrd
I will never forget you
