Oh My Lord!! I can't believe a year has gone by already. I've never seen time go by so fast, especially when you just want the time to stop or turn back. Every single minute of every day has been a true struggle to accept that you are gone and was taken from us violently by a coward who doesn't appreciate life and who doesn't deserve life in my opinion. Those are cruel words and they are meant for the soul that took my Son's life. We will honor this dreadful day, August 9, today across the world. I light a candle for you almost every night and tonight Son, your loved one's will do a candle light vigil and some will do a balloon release, some will cry and some will think of all the times you made them feel good and laugh. The planet will be "extra lit" for you tonight My Love. Please rest in heaven and know that we feel so much pain when we realize how much we miss you and would prefer you here on the planet with us. Love Always, your Loving Mother.

“Happy Fathers Day”, those were my last words to you, the father of two bright, beautiful children Akayla and Carter Payton. Your love for them is unmatched, it was always a joy to witness. I know you strived to be a great father because family is important to you. As a big brother you always educated me, you taught me how to blow a bubble from bubble tape gum, showed me how to fight as a means of protecting myself and always requested me to date a nerd no thugs allowed. As we grew older our family grew too, Drake and Daisha became a part of our tribe making me a big sister. With everything you taught me I tried to pour into them. I wanted to be just like you, a hardworking, fun loving person. Don’t get me wrong you’ve gotten on my nerves sometimes, from pushing me in the pool with my fresh press and curl, to your absences at my college graduation. Those moments sucked, yet we always came back together to remind each other how much love we held in hearts for one another, all is forgiven. Marcus you will always be in my heart. Thank you for your memories and lessons, they are pieces of your spirit that guide us all. Thank you for your honesty and strength, as you overcame multiple adversities it developed your testimony. Thank you for everything. I will joyfully brag for the rest of my days of how wonderful you are and continue to celebrate your life. You will be missed and cherished forever my brother, my friend, my blessing Da’Marcus we love you.

We was in Vallejo at dads old spot, tryna go somewhere. Dad was telling us to get in the car while Marcus was tryna roast on hi, they goin back in forth I’m crackin up. Marcus gon say “You so light skinned you look like a Orange Crayon!” I was in tears, we was crackin up for forever on that joke, still makes me laugh about how silly we could be. Didn’t even make sense but we still enjoyed the laugh.

Me and Demarcus (I called him Cali) started off not seeing eye to eye  but eventually we both got over the head bump and started a friendship I never knew would impact my lifethis much. Him and his wife Tonara (my best friend) opened there doors to me and we all grew strong bond. Cali was just a overall a genuinely good person and I saw that he was capable of a lot and had a good head on his shoulders. We used to give each other advice and he helped me in so many ways and taught me a lot. And I’ll never forget the friendship we had and he is forever missed. 

We Ain't Too Much Trippen

Shared by Taylor Holland on September 9, 2020
It took me a while before I could build up the strength to write anything so I will try to keep it brief.  Da'Marcus and I met when we were 13 & 14 years old. We were kids, but our friendship and bond was very strong. On every letter and after every phone call we would always say "We ain't too much trippen" and that was our way of saying 'Us against the world'. Now, I'm not going to try to fit the contents of our complicated love story into words because truthfully, it would be impossible for anyone to truly understand the extent and magnitude of our history or relationship. But I can say that Da'Marcus had a good heart and loved the ones around him deeply and he definitely left an impact on those that came around him. The experiences we shared and memories we made are unmatched. When we were younger he used to say "We gone grow up together, get married and have kids" and when we found out that we were pregnant with our son he just kept repeating "didn't I tell you we was gone have kids Tay?, who called it?" Lol He was a good father and he loved his kids.

Even though we parted ways. When we would be on the phone we could still talk like best friends. Things weren't perfect (not by a long shot), but we played the cards that were dealt and were making plans for the future to get in more family time. The Lord saw fit to alter those plans and he has the ultimate say, so I won't be sad. Instead, I'll be happy that I had the opportunity to spend more than half of my life knowing and growing with him and his beautiful heart. I hurt for my son, because he won't be able grow along side his father and be able to ask him all his curious questions and have those father-son talks, but I will do my best to handle those delicate times with Da'Marcus in mind.

D, I didn't quite understand the fullness and richness of loving someone with my whole heart until you taught me. I will always remember how you made me feel. I hope that I left that same impression on you. I pray we meet again King.
