Daymian loved basketball and the famous Michael Jordan. He enjoyed rap music and designer clothes, such as Polo.

One thing about my son, he was never a bore, he was always ready to have fun and loved to have a good time.

Watching Daymian grow gave such pleasure to my life. I’ve watched him grow from an infant into a fine young man. I sometimes feel the need to just hold his hand.

I can’t imagine life without my only boy, who over the years has given me such joy. Daymian, you’ve always made me proud and this you know, for the way you have touched my life, I know that it shows.


Daymian was leaving the girl’s dormitory when a group of city boys’ blocked the entrance. He managed to get passed them, words were exchanged and a gun was displayed. A bottle was thrown and a fight broke out, the person with the gun shot Daymian once and he died.
