Knowing your family for most of my life, i have watched you grow from a distance. Dejanee never stopped talking about how you got ranked and how you were doing in the army. At your graduation she was so excited to see you. From my eyes, it was so beautiful seeing my best friend happy that her brother was starting a new chapter of a new, great yet HAPPY life. You definitely made us all proud even though i wasn't around you much, you have grown into a man and accomplished many things that not even most can even accomplish. Thank you for being protective of my best friend, a great, honorable big brother in her life. You've made your family so proud, you will be misssd greatly. Dejanee is going to and i mean going to make you proud. You will never be forgotten. RIP Quan.

I'm so sorry for your loss Foster family. He was a special young man and I remember his million dollar smile and his attempts to get out of hw by flashing his dimples- it never worked!! He was kind, bright, funny and lit up a room. I taught him freshman and sophomore year ad. After 1000s of students he still stands out to me. So proud of his service and clearly what a wonderful young man and father he had become. So proud of him and for his service to the country. My sincerest condolences to his mother and siblings, wife and children.
