This 19 yo young man was on vacation with his family when tragedy struck.  He was in a lake in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois,  when he drown.   Yhalayea, pronounced Ya Yay, is a top student at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO and an accomplished basketball player who attended UNC on a basketball scholarship.  He is survived by his mother, father, younger sister and younger brother who live in Aurora, CO.  

Such a tragedy came at moments notice, with no time to plan or even decide many medical decisions.  It came upon this family on Wednesday, June 21, 2017.  We are asking for the publics help in assisting the family to fund their sons funeral costs.  This family is humbled and grateful for whatever you can offer, as they are truly in need of financial help.  Please, if you can, donate.

Revelation 21:4 "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."

Ya Yay, you will be remembered always; for your kind spirit, your giving heart, your hard working mentality, your love for basketball, friends, family and your love of God.  May you, with our Lord GOD, watch over your family and your friends and protect them while they grieve through this process of missing you and letting go.  You are forever in the hearts of many...
