Royce Samuels Homecoming

Those of you wondering, who is Karri? I am Karri Sears a '90 graduate from  El Reno, OK. I graduated with Patrice, Royce's sister. I'm a head basketball coach in Del City, Ok. Royce was a mentor and friend. He recruited a couple of my kiddos, through the years. I saw him in many facets throughout his lifetime.  I set this fund up for him, because he simply deserved it. I named his sister the beneficiary because I knew the family is in dire need of bringing her brother home from Washington D.C. and to prepare and make arrangements for his final resting place in here in Oklahoma.  We have had a great outpouring of support from friends, teammates, former coaches, players, classmates and associates.  This is a legit site and I have I entrusted his sister with the control of the funds. This is all going to Royce Samuels' transport home and any all funeral expenses, which is in any way his family sees fit...we are celebrating the biggest and smallest of memories and celebrating the time we got to spend with bigger than life, coach, mentor and friend! He never met a stranger, he was taken from us unexpectedly and was a shock to everyone that held him in such high regard...We love you, Man!!
