Norris my cousin, I will miss you dearly...
.. reminiscing on my younger days going over to aunt Sue & uncle Freddie\'s house spending the weekends to be with my cousins. There\'s so much to say but I will keep it short. I always looked up to you, you were that dude; the ball player on the courts, the swag and fly gear, I even took your street name \"SUGAR BEAR\"... Norris I will miss the jokes you always had and the laughter...
Love you my brother rest in POWER🙏
