  10. Reece, is an amazing young man that had a very bright light. He was a very good friend to my son Desmond Sherrod before he passed away. Reece would message me and check on me and tell me stories about Desmond and send pictures. He is such a sweet young man. It’s hard to believe another young soul is gone. But I know Reece and Desmond are going to take care of each other.

You could tell at such a young age he would grow into a young man of character. I never saw Reece without a smile on his face. He never met a stranger and was one of the most polite young people that I have ever met. You will be missed by many Reece.
