How can I even begin to write about how sweet Jermines soul was? How does a sister even start to write an obituary for her little brother? Well here goes nothing…

Jermaine was and always has been a unique child, even into his adult life he was a special one. Jermaine became homecoming king, won the last touchdown at his football game and was getting his life on track despite everything that was up against him as he was growing up he still prevailed…. and then he was murdered.

He was only 20 years old when he was taken from us in such an unholy way.
Our mother has lost a baby and that's so painful. It's something I'll never want anyone to ever experience. Jermaine's life was taken by trying to save another's, because that's who he was. He was a ride or die. There are so many ways to explain who Jermaine was, the good the bad the inbetween. But at the end of the day Jermaine is and always has been loved by many. Jermaine will forever be remembered as doo-doo bean!

We love you forever and a day jermaine. Not a day goes by that we aren't thinking of you and missing you. Say hi to granny for us and continue to watch over us as we continue to watch over your babies.

{YGANENT.CEO I love you past my own death you are always gonna have my heart lil bro and i wish i could have done more for you while you were here until my death imma always keep ya name alive we ride together we die together bad boys for life-love Kiante}

Every morning you're on my mind
Some mornings are harder than others
This morning is one of those mornings
My pain is hard to hide
I miss you beyond words
I can't explain the grief I feel
You not being here hurts so bad
You're death is still so unreal
You are my baby boy and I can't express the love I have for you
My life will forever be changed
Never again to be the same
Forevermore I will love you true
My 4th born my 2nd son
my baby boy my son
my DOODOO...
I promise I will see you again
Just not yet...
spread your wings and fly high
{Mom’s words to you jermaine}
