My condolences to the Family from my heart, I pray to God you all get through this time of sorrow. I knew Chico for a long time, it would a be book for me to tell you about Chico and my relationship. I seen him out a lot at all the clubs, he always dress, and I saw him around the basketball courts too, where we play ball, Laughing, talking, arguing, fussing, and back to laughing and cracking jokes on people. This was our basketball ball Family we all love each other, no matter what, it was the comradery we miss when the pandemic hit. Chico and I would talk on the phone often. He would call and say what's "T" and I would say what's up "Chic", and we would laugh and talk awhile about the Fellas and we miss playing basketball. I remembered when one of my Jeeps had a flat tired, he say "T", don't leave it at Glenville drive it to my house, I we watch it for you, and then he took me home which is across town with no problem, and then he came and got me two days later to get the tires fix on it, he say "T" you know we always got to look out for each other, and before his Daughter say he was the life of the party, I was thinking about "Chic", and than I thought about "The DRAMATICS", "I WAS THE LIFE OF THE PARTY", thats Chico hand dancing bring a chair out why he was hand dancing with a Lady, putting on a show, and next day come to the gym cracking jokes, So to his Family listen to that song it will reminds y'all of y'all Dad. As I close Chico and I get off the phone with Chico he would say love you bruh, I would respond love you to man, we both would say be safe, and later. He would be forever miss. GOD has Chico and GOD IS GREAT, AMEN
