Just want to extend my prayers to the mother, father, brothers and sister of KeKe. I can remember him singing on the choir at Providence Baptist Church he was excited to be singing a song. He had a smile that would make you smile when you saw him. May God comfort you and give you strength to make it through this difficult time. Love Nicole Lilly

Our hearts break for all of you. I watched KeKe grow up. He played Youth League Football and graduated with my youngest boy. He was always so respectful and nice to me and my boys. God rest his soul! My thoughts and prayers go out to his mother and family.

I really hate that Keshawn's life was cut short like this. I hope that everyone involved can make their peace with God. This type of tragedy proves nothing. Justice will never be served because we lost someone to the sin of hate. He had potential. He was smart. He was passionate about life...He will be missed by his family and friends.
