"My husband knew Fooney well. David also grew up with his father Jimmy in Virginia. Fooney wanted to be in our wedding but I didn't want him to incur the expense being I didn't know him personally. Well after all the great things said of him at his Homegoing service I'm now sorry I declined his offer. I now know That was just the type of person he was. RIP"

"As I sit heaven and watch you everyday , I try to let you know with signs I never went away. I hear you when you're laughing and watch you as you sleep. I even place arms around you to calm you as you weep. I see you wish the days away begging to have me home. So I try to send you signs so you know you are not alone. Don't feel guilty that you have life that was denied to me. Heaven is truly beautiful just wait and see. So live your life , laugh again. Enjoy yourself , be free , then I know with every breath you take. You'll be taking one for me"

"I felt compelled to leave a note here because in reflecting on my interaction & friendship with "Fooney" over the years, one personal trait of his continues to come to mind: humility.

Dude was easy to befriend, the smoothest of cats socially & a beast on the basketball court. And guess what? You'd never know it.

His warm, engaging personality somehow blanketed all those enviable skills. He was a hard worker, a true friend to many and welcoming of all.

When I think of his overall demeanor, I don't think it's a coincidence that the verse below contains his name.

He's definitely kicking it with Angels in heaven right now. God bless you Fooney & thanks for setting an example for us all.

"God gives grace to the humble." (James 4:6)"

"I didn't know Fooney that well. I knew his mom and his sister use to do my daughter's hair. From what I saw he was a handsome, kind, and sweet gentle person. Rip Fooney!"

"I remember fooney used to cut my hair on sundays once a week for school love and miss u allways"
