"This is your first birthday I don't have your TeTe Lettrice here to help me hold my face up off my lap of tears,but I know she is thinking of me and my sorrow today and always.,,Lena Mae still don't know she is gone,,she's in really bad shape herself..your old friend Jeff has come back into our lives.,, too bad you didn't get to spend time with him .,,still trying to get justice for you my child,,will never give up,this I promise...."
"Another year without you my one and only son,life is still so painful without you being a part of it.. you would be proud of Jael she is going into the Army soon,Marie is working and has her own place, Antonio has a son that looks just like him,,he will never get to know what having you as his uncle means,,your Dad is in really bad shape too far to visit regular,...LOVE YOU AND YOU ARE TRULY MISSED,LOVE MOM..,"
"Missing u Gene our beloved nephew so o much. You will Never be4 gotten . Always in Our Hearts. We Love u Dearly."

"Our precious loving nephew so missed. Our Hearts haven't been the same. Flying high with the Angels."
"I really wish I were lying beside you my son so I wouldn't have to deal with this pain from your horrific death, Lettrice should still be here for her family ,,the only thing that keeps me here is trying my best to see that you get justice for what you endured during those early morning hours,, you will get justice one way or another this I promise you,.THIS I PROMISE YOU....two years of feeling like a walking dead dead person.,"
"Yesterday I became grandma to Prince Logan Antonio Bell. He looks just like bucket head Antonio. He doesn't have you to give him a crazy nickname like you gave everyone else. He'll definitely get to hear stories about how much fun we had whIle you were here. Missing you something crazy Gene."
"Dear uncle I miss you so much man. I think about you everyday wishing you was here with me. Just save me a seat next to you love & missed forever remembered."
"words can not comfort the pain of your loss my son,my first born,my right hand man,i no longer have your tete lettrice here to help me through this nightmare,,the loss of the both of you has consumed my life,its really not even a life anymore cause I keep seeing the pain and terror you dealt with alone,..knowing your life would soon end,..who needs to wake up every morning knowing another day of distress is waiting around the bend.,,"
"I can't believe its been 2 long years since we last talked. I remember growing up with you and everything you did I wanted to do. You always came wherever I was to check on me and to let others know that you was my Big brother,cousin and best friend. You've always made everyone who came in contact with you laugh,you have a sense of humour that was a joy to be around. I remember people used to ask us if we were brothers,some claimed that they couldn't tell us apart. Well it's true we are brothers and we have so much in common. Auntie has truly stepped in and been the best mom to me,JP,TaVonna and Krystle. She's constantly checking in on us and giving us that love that only a mother can. I guess we've swapped mother's now, you needed your favorite TeTe and I got my favorite TeTe. I will always be listening for your voice and seeing your face and holding your hand like a brother would. I love you cuzo."
"I'm so sorry my son for the horrors upon horrors you endured during those early morning hours,how I wish you had someone that you could turn to and let them know you were in trouble,that hurts me more,not only did you not have anyone in that bldg. human enuff to .call 911,you didnt think you had anyone else to turn to in your time of need, we all make mistakes,yours was staying in that bldg.and trying to handle things on your own.,,i blame myself for moving you into a neighborhood neither one of us was aware the dangers of ,i trusted your words about the safeness of the bldg being in good standing due to the LLORD being a Chicago police,,,big mistake on both our parts,,..NO JUSTICE.,NO PEACE.,,I PROMISE YOU I WILL NEVER GIVE UP SEEKING JUSTICE,,,!!! YOU HAVE NO IDEA THE LOSS I FEEL EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY,,.... ,"
"Words can't even begin a to express the hurt & pain we've felt since you were taken from us. I know God has a plan, but your death I will never understand. I know you're the entertainment for all that have gone home before you. You a truly missed dear brother. You are at peace now & I somehow find comfort with that. Heaven gained an Angel Clown for sure. Miss you Gene always"
