I cherished the 661,564,800 seconds spent with you / Jackie Luckett (Mother)
(603 days - post Cardon!!!) Cardon in your short life you gave me more joy than I can possibly count. You were my true passion, my real purpose for living. However, I decided today to do the math down to how many seconds you brought me nothing but pure joy and it is as follows:
7,657 Days - 1,092 Sundays - 20 Birthdays - 20 Christmas - 20 Thanksgiving - 20 Easters - 5 Leap Years - 18 years of school - 8 years of after school care - 183,768 Hours - 11,026,080 Minutes and 661,564,800 Seconds.
I do not believe I will live another 7,657 days. Each day I can feel my mind, my body and my soul grow weaker. I am numb! I have no passion and no real joy. My life today is dark, I often speak of living my own personal hell everyday.
I know it been a while since I wrote but I think of you almost everyday, somewhere, someone reminds me of you and your silliness! I don't think I told you before but I work with Sadira, we figured that out over the summer and both ended up seeing Charles at the PHLI Block party. I know you know he's married now, crazy I know! I find myself still talking about you as if you never left, I guess I think of it like it just one of our long breaks we go without seeing or talking to each other. Anywho, just wanted to tell you I miss you and can't wait to hang out with you again.

like you'll never see me again... / Nicole Jackson (Broussard) (friend)
I heard that new Alicia Keys song today, "LIKE YOU'LL NEVER SEE ME AGAIN." It really made me think about you, how I took for granted the last time I saw you ...You picked me up and hugged me and said really loud "WHAT UP STAR?" I was thinking...y he always embarrassing me? lol well, I wish I charished that moment like I would never have seen you again...well I can't take it back but eventhough at the time I was embarrassed, I appreciate your friendship and acknowledgment. I'm sure just like me that song will remind a lot of people of you...miss u more than ever my friend.
I know it has been a minute since i last wrote you on here...just because I have not wrote you does not me I am not thinking of you nor missing you....you are always on my mind...some days heavier than others....i still cant believe you are not here....i swear im still waiting for that loud radio to come blairing down the street and see your beautiful smile....im waiting for you to call my phone and say..."heyyy kid im downstairs." well im going to stop writing now because if i write anymore im going to tear up....i check in with you later.

I got touched...will pay it forward / Tish (Recipient of an Angel (Cardon) ) Talked to a beautiful woman today, You know her very well, She has a heart pure as gold, from her words I could tell She spoke very highly of you and I could sense she misses you so I could hear in her voice it was hard to let you go, But she did it with grace and feels pleased that you are in His arms Because now she can rest knowing you are safe from harm But nobleness and great memories you did leave behind She told me you opened your heart to others, and treated them so kind, I can also tell you are a perfect extension of her, created to fulfill a plan, You continue to carry on her joy and compassion, touching everyone you can Close
We were practically neighbors / Charmaine (South Holland Neighbor )
I didn't know this young personally but just seeing this site, all the pictures, and tributes that were written I can tell that this young man was loved very much. I lost my fiance due to a motorcycle accident (which will be two years 08/07/2007). The accident occured on 156th and Prince Drive a block before Greenwood. Two blocks from the house (156th & Kimbark Ave.). I just happen to doing a search a google and came across this site.
I want to send my condolences to the family and friends of this young man. I know that things happen in our lives that we wish we could change but we just have to trust God and the plans that he have for us. There is so much going on this world today and it's accidents like this that wakes us up and see things differently. In my immediate family this was the first time I've experienced a lost so great. It will be two years and it's still unbelievable too me that he is gone. I just pray and hope that my (our) daughters grow up okay and remember the man that their father was.
This lost "YOUR LOST" was so close to home to me (we were practically neighbors) that I had to say something. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

Always with us / Sharon Davis (Aunt)
Hello Okay, so we went to the Cemetary on 07-02-07 and your mother and I waited until the 3 or 4 burials were done and your mom stayed in the truck. I got out and said a short prayer. I asked your mother to get out but she stayed in air condition. Soon your cousins and Aunt arrived along with Ping and Sagun, another young lady, Nick and Torree.
I said another short prayer and it went something like this. Lord, we thank you for the life of this young man. People have asked how did we make through the year. We did it with your help second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour. No one here is on the day by day yet. Love never dies.
We then stepped outside the mausoleum and released balloons and we watched them until they disappeared into the sky. Those balloons are soaring just like you are in heaven.
We cracked jokes and laughed and reminicised a little. We held our heads high just like you wanted us to.
Thank you for the lone bird that appears outside my kitchen window everyday. I feel it is your spirit reminding me that you are great and still with us. Brooke talks about you all the time. Your pictures are in a place in our home where we look at you first thing and also the last thing at night. You are still here with us.
Now here is a scripture that makes me think of you. I tried to learn it verbatim but here goes. Now abide faith, hope, love. These three. The greatest of these is Love."
Faith because I know you are doing better than us and that you are in heaven. Hope because we hope to see you again one day and we also have faith that we will. Love because love never dies. You caould be absent from the body until we are 110 and we will never stop loving you.
Its been a yeaar since you've been gone, it seem like it was just yesterday that I got the call about u. It saddens me and probably everyone who knew u that its ur anniversary. We gon party like rock stars down here just like u doing up there. Keep doing what u doing in us as well as what u doing up there. Its a blessing that u made a impact in peoples life like u did cuz ur name is still remember and talked about and its no negative. Be Bless. One Love

07-02-06...a day I will never forget / KEya (Friend)
Well Cardon........its here, its been one year since you been gone. it seems like now you were on my mind like never before....i mean each day got better and better as i learned to accept your death...today just brought back bad memories and made me wake up in tears... this time last year i woke up to a phone call that you were gone......i remember i tried to play it cool but i just broke down....today also made me think of how i did not attend your funeral...i deeply regret that but what can you do...i didnt attend your funeral because of my issues i have with funerals in general. But I remember you comming to me in my dreams and letting me know that it was okay that i didnt attend...yesterday i saw someone on a motorcycle and freaked out when the car almost hit him, because it made me think of you...even though im a bit teary eyed right now i know today is not a sad day but a celebration of you life...*Muah*
