    It is with great sadness to learn that De’Andre such an outstanding young man’s life was taken so suddenly, this was a smart young man even at an early age, he was set to graduate next year with a BS degree at NCCU, what more could a mom ask for in her son! What is it about today’s society that can’t stand to see an educated young black man do well. As black women we must stay prayed up for our young black men and plead the blood of Jesus over our babies everyday! From tear drop to tear drop I say to Ernisha, Anaiyah and Xzavier, keep your heads up, I know it’s hard but just know that you are in our prayers. Rest In Peace De’Andre. .

    It breaks my heart to know that you are gone, and to think about the people that love you and will miss you every single day makes it that much harder to process. You brought so much joy to peoples lives. I know that my niece Gee is lost without your presence, You were/are her best friend since you guys were little kids. I'm so sorry that this has happened to you, your family, your friends. Just know that you will always be loved, and by so many people, and that your time here on earth made a huge positive impact on so many lives. Until next life time. xo

    Ms. Ballard and Family, I was DeAndre's Academic Advisor at NCCU when he started as a freshman, and I remember him as a kind young man who was always smiling. I was so sad to hear of his passing and words cannot express my heartfelt sympathy for your family. I pray God will bless your family with comfort, healing and peace. Sincerely, Monica Banks
