Gone Too Soon : This was a life that had hardly begun No time to find your place in the sun No time to do all you could have done But we loved you enough for a lifetime. No time to enjoy the world and its wealth No time to take life down from the shelf No time to sing the song of yourself Though you had enough love for a lifetime. Those who live long endure sadness and tears But you'll never s

I was having deep thought about teens that have died in 2011 then I came across this, yemurai was a wonderful person, he died the day I came back from a weeks trip to the country side, I remember the inbox I sent to him the night I got back, not knowing he was in welling being attacked, I pass where he was murdered everyday and I feel such a pain in my heart. R.I.P my big bro yemz <3

I just googled to find out what had happened with this sad case and came across this page. I remember the day it happened and feeling so shocked and saddened by such a brutal act.Your entire family and friends must feel such a loss without you. Any murder is awful but teenager on teenager murder- WHY? I can not imagine how you feel, I didnt know you and it makes me cry such sad tears RIP
