My name is LaVita M Sweet. I had the pleasure of speaking with Mr. Kentril. He was a good friend to my daughter TraCreecia Brown. He will be missed here on earth, but I know he is paving the way for those he loved in heaven.

Janetta. I am so sorry to hear about your brother. I think we have been down this senseless path one to many times. Those words that you shared with your husband during his lost is going to be those same words to pull you through. We love you and we are here for you and the kids. Dawnisha, Desha and Jdyn

Brother, I know that God is taking care of you because he is helping us cope with the lost of you. It still doesn't seem real that your gone but I know in my heart that we won't be apart for long. Staying strong is the hardest thing to do right now because we had so many more years to go. I beat you in age by 2 months and still you thought you were the oldest. I am always going to remember you because no other brother can replace you. I hope your looking down smiling on me and our family wishing us the best of luck. Were looking up at you praying and hoping that you save a spot for all of us.

To Kentril's Mother, Kentril worked for me at Taco John's the year he graduated High School. I was the GM at that time and he even had me come out and meet you one day when you picked him up. I want you to know that you raised a wonderful human being. He was always a hard worker, was very respectful to me all of the time and I loved him like one of my own. It must be true that only the good die young, because he was and will always be "one of the good one's". I hope you can take some comfort in knowing that he lived what you taught him. My prayers are with you and your family.

Kentril will be missed at ITT. It has been a week and I still cannot believe it happened. A life unfulfilled is one of the most tragic events. I had him as a student in only one class but I thoroughly enjoyed him in class. I could always count on his smile or laugh during class. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Bruce White

So Tragic! Kentril is now an Angel looking down upon you!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

To the entire Family & Friends of Mr.Banister: I personally don't know the family or friends but!
I know the pain that you are feeling the hurt. I lost a loved one in the same senseless way and when you lose someone you love, it seems that time stands still. What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day,one more word,one more touch, we may not understand why they leave this earth so soon, or why they leave before we were ready to say good-bye,but little by little,we begin to remember not just that they died,but that they lived, And that they life gave us memories too beautiful to ever forget them. When I lost my loved one unexpectedly it was GOD who carry me thru the pain, the hurt weeping may endure for a night ,but joy will cometh in the morning So please accept my heartfelt sympathy & will keep you all in my prayers
