Terrence Paul McCrary, Jr. Memorial

The blessings that this son, brother, grandson, cousin, godson, friend, artist and peace lover brought us are beyond golden. And even with this, senseless, incomprehensible violence stopped at his doorstep. 

Terrence Paul McCrary, Jr., 22, was attending a birthday party at an Oakland, California art gallery/community center when gunfire erupted and Terrence and other young partygoers were caught in the middle of crossfire between two unknown men. Terrence and another young spirit, died at the scene during the early hours of Sunday morning, August 14. Terrence was a talented, budding artist in Berkeley, blessed with the gift of a warm spirit that resulted in him having a wealth of friends. 

You may have known Terrence as "Lil' T," "T-Mack," or "Sweet T" -- but whatever the name, you knew his laugh, his warmth, his genuine interest in you, his cool and easy vibe, and how much he loved his family, his friends, all kinds of art, skateboarding, and of course, peace.

By donating now you will support Terrence's memorial services -- something his family could never have foreseen planning.

Thank you, and please, please spread your version of peace...Lil' T would want that for all of us.
