    My deepest condolences go out to this young man’s family and friends. This is such a sad tragedy and my heart goes out to all those who are grieving at this time. I read a few comments on here and I must say that some people are very insensitive. This could happen to any of us at any time so please, sympathize and empathize with the young man’s family and pray for grace ansd strength. Now is not the time to say negative things. This young man had a full life ahead of him and it was sadly taken. I have no idea at all if he knew Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior and so I cannot make any statement of judgement about this aspect of things. What I wanna say is let this be a wake up call for all of us to get right with God. We can die at any time in any way, any place and any how.

    God Bless.

    Violence is not the answer. Be on the safe side and allow justice to prevail. JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL. DO NO avenge Julien’s passing with violence. He’s gone, love yourselves as though he was still here.

    Julien and Magdalyn my Deepest Sympathy is extended to you and the rest of the family. Whatever the circumstances surrounding your son’s passing DO NOT, at any time, allow people’s talk tarnish your memories of him. It is very SAD that one has to lost its life in that manner. Julien and Magdalyn, GOD is watching over you; and your son, Julien, is in a better place. Almost eight years ago my son, Terry, went to meet his father in heaven (motorcycle accident). I miss him very much; however, each time I think of him I remember him telling me “mammy, you worry too much, everything is going to be alright.” Those words, his laughter, and the LOVE he had for us, gives me comfort. Therefore, when you think of your son, Julien, remember him with the thought of his kindness to you and others. I did not know him; however, I feel your pain. I have 3/4’s of my heart remaining and though sometimes I wish I had the whole 4/4 in place, I know the 1/4 that is not with me in the world is with me in spirit. My memories of him will always be there and those memories make up the other 1/4. Memories are good so at all times, when you think of your son remember, not what people are saying but what you know to be TRUE. He was your son. One can NEVER LOVE its child too much. He’s at peace with the LORD and whomever was the cause of his passing will, at one time or another, answer to the LORD; HE NEVER GOES TO SLEEP.

    im so not surprised or saddened by this. the young guys in vieille case are so disturbing one had to fall sooner or later. i hope his death will be an eye opener for the rest of them!!! when you live your life in the ways of destruction it will come to you. he was not a quiet young man he caused alot of people harm and he’s paying for his actions!

    we always have to remember GOD IS WATCHING!!!!!!

    Junior it is alway a sad thing when one dies, especially at such a young age. It seems not too long ago that you were born. For life to have been so unjustly taken away from you at such a young age, i must say that it is rather very sad and most difficult to accept. I am not sure if this is the right thing to say, but to me, you have been snatched away much too soon.

    I trust that your family will be comforted during this time of sorrow, especially my brothers to whom you were closely related.

    May your soul rest in peace.
