    He will truly be missed!!! Kenneth may you rest in peace and justice be served for you. I remember the many conversations we had and you saying you was my babydaddy. You and my daughter was the best of friends. I never thought I would be typing rip for you at such a early age. Only if you had stayed in Andalusia you would still be with us today. I’m sadden by your loss until we meet again just know you gave us a lifetime of memories and laughter. I can see that smile on your baby face. I hope the people responsible for the heartaches they have caused to your mom and siblings get exactly what they deserve.

    This was my best friend.. He used to stay right across the street from me.. I tutored him in school and he was always at my house. He was very fun to be around and he didn’t deserve to be done this way. He never was unhappy.. He made my day. I am truly going to miss my friend. Thank God justice was found for him. He was to young for that and to leave the world that way. But I keep his mom siblings and the rest of his family in my prayers..

    No. This isn’t the young man that walked around Flomaton and Century all the time in robes and such. My son and I know him. I hope they find out what happened to this young man. This is just unreal! You don’t think it will happen around here.

  9. Bob on April 21st, 2016 9:20 pm

  10. Jackie Jackson on April 21st, 2016 7:47 pm

    It’s sad what this world is coming to. It’s always heartbreaking when a child dies, but there’s no reason to get angry enough to kill someone’s baby. I don’t know who it was or why it even happened, but this family is in my prayers.

    Please get justice!! This young man was known by many and adored by most! For this to happen is so sad! I knew this young man personally and so did my kids! It’s heart breaking to realize that he was at my house Monday evening. My love and prayers are going out to his family!!! I hope and pray the crul person that did this gets what they deserve!
