Dear Family and Friends,

At approximately 3:35pm Thursday, March 12, 2015, Keshawn was attacked and stabbed to death as he was walking home from school. He was two blocks away from home.  The family is completely devastated behind this senseless violent act of crime. 

Keshawn was only 15 years old. He was a loving, caring , and respectable young man.  He loved his parents dearly and had a special bond with his little sister.  This kid had the biggest heart and was well liked by his neighbors, teachers, and classmates.

His parents kept him active in the  church and did an amazing job raising him the right way. 

The thing we want people to know most about Keshawn, is that he loved the Lord and had a heart of PURE GOLD touched by God himself.  He enjoyed playing football, shooting pool & playing games with his cousins and friends.  He loved to laugh and had the most beautiful smile.

From the words of Keshawn's father
"My son was not a gang member.  This was a murder. Down outright. And he did not deserve this. And to the people who came to his aid, I would like to thank you, very much. It pleases me that he was not alone during his time of death.”

No parent should have to loose their child in this manner.   Keshawn's Father, Mother, and little sister are in need of much prayer, they have not been able to return to their home since this horrific crime, as they must pass the crime scene to do so.

The  family is currently in need of assistance with memorial cost. 

We thank you for your prayers, love, and support. http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2015/03/12/high-school-student-reportedly-stabbed-to-death-in-long-beach/#.VQRzOMSmuxs.email

I've read/heard a lot of good things about this young man. He had a promising future & it breaks my heart to know that some thug took that away. I did not know Keshawn but, reading & hearing so many wonderful things about him, I will miss him. To the family of Keshawn, it was not just your family who lost him, we ALL lost him with you. My most sincere condolences to the family. Stars belong above us, that is where Keshawn is now. Shine brighter than ever for us, Keshawn. Prayers. I've made an "angelic" photo of Keshawn. You can see it on my page https://www.facebook.com/?_rdr I hope his family & friends like it. RIP Keshawn
