Naz

My name is John Cooley. I am from Chambersburg Pennsylvania and moved to Orlando, FL is 1996.  I am Naz's best friend of 21 years and co-founder of Keys to the City INC. in 2005.
A few days ago while swimming at home with family and friends, my business partner, best friend and brother Naz aka Ssino suffered an accident in which he drowned. Despite the actions taken quickly to revive him, Naz is currently comatose and being held in the critical care unit. Although much has been done, we have been notified that our dear friend should be taken off life support soon. 
Naz was a strong family man, business man and  all around warrior in life. He poured love and encouragement into any and everthing his spirit encountered. He was selfless; a leader guiding us to accomplish our missions in life. The truth is that while he never gave up, he gave until he gave out. In honor of the example Naz set for us in life, we must continue to complete this mission - doing for him as he lays near death, what he did for us as he walked through life. We are thankful for the opportunities he created for others,  the love he brought into our lives, and will forever treasure these memories. 
We, as a family, will try our best to raise the finances necessary to cover the expenses related to this tragic turn of events.  100 % of all contributions will be given to Naz's immediate family. We appreciate all of your good will and assistance during this time of great hardship. If Naz could be present with us now, he too would be filled with gratitude and humility at the thought of your contribution. 

All funds will be given to Tameka Foster, sister of myself, John Cooley. She is also from Chambersburg Pennsylvania and moved to Orlando in 1996. The funds will be deposited into Tameka's account and then given to John Cooley to replenish the money paid for Naz's funeral.  All funeral expenses were paid by John Cooley. 

"... weeping may endure for the night, but joy cometh in the morning." 

Thank you Naz. We love you, always.
