Have a little compassion for his friends and family. I graduated with Thomas (Booker) and his sister who had a baby on thrusday night, had to deal with the death of her brother on fri night. You two are extremely rude. I can only pray if you loose a loved one, no one will make a comment like that.

Some people are just ignorant and obviously haven't been brought up in life properly by their parents. For someone to make a remark like that about someone whos life has been taken is shallow and must be mentally hanicap. It's sad to think that people have no respect for another persons value of life. You never know how your comment will affect you one day in life but what goes around comes around 10 times harder. It's said to think that your mother is stuck with such a ignorant and disgraceful child she must be ashamed she had you.
As for Thomas, no one can take away from the fact you are still loved. Grab you wings and take your place next to your mother you have been called to do your work. You keep us in heaven we got your memory on earth. until we see you again.
WITH LOVE Ya extended Family.

Thomas is a bears fan and you suck for such a FUCKED UP comment. I totally resent the insensitive comments that are posted here at the expense of a tragic situation. The Guy family is in so much pain and has suffered so much loss in the past couple years and I feel for the entire family.

I got the chance to spend a lot of time with Tom Tom over the holidays and more and I knew that he was gonna be all right. Who knew that he would be "All Right"...but not here on earth with us.

Tom Tom looked out for his family but was not able to keep a close eye on everybody at the same time. He is now able to do so along the side of his mother. We should all count our blessings and know that we are all living on borrowed time here on this earth....and to make your mark. And That is what Tom Tom did...he made his mark on everybody and everything he contacted.

Much love from you Aquarian sista Tom Tom....And yes...we are still gonna have your birthday party......Love Big Booty Rissa

Kevin is a ignorant mislead evil asshole and you are the same if you could love someone that much knowing he took a persons life for no reason at all. Get some self respect for yourself. Someone should do onto him as he has done onto someone else. Although that would be the easy way out for him. I hope the rest of both of your lives are hell on earth. Point Blank you are stupid. The least you could have done on this blog was give your condolences to the family that your friend or family member came along and MURDERED for no reason at all. You had no comments you should have left it that way.....BLANK

I do give my condolences to the family, I wasnt being rude. I have nothing against anyone here. I have no right to be rude. What Kevin did was unjust and I understand he will pay for his actions. But family is family, and like I said I love him.

in response to kevin' family- your family member has caused horrific pain to my family for no reason. yes i know kevin is your family and you can't help but to love him. i have personally been on that side(being the defendant's family)so i know where you are coming from. but what i don't understand is why did kevin have soooo much hate in him. what kind of family were ya'll to let him walk around with so much hate? tom-tom was not a "drug dealer" or a "gang banger" as kevin stated. he was a wonderful uncle/brother/best-friend to soooo many. he is loved and will truly be missed. i just pray that kevin lets go of the hate he has inside, something his family should of done!!! I LOVE YOU TOM-TOM!! RIP!!

I agree. I too, have played both sides of the fence. I was once "on the other side" being the defendant's family. I know exactly what it is to love someone unconditionally, so I understand that you're only exercising the love that God has placed in your heart for Kevin. But as his family member, I must ask if you had seen this hatred brewing inside of him? Where was the intervention, or did his practices of racism go unnoticed? Tom-Tom's death was so senseless, but I just don't believe that this was just another random act of violence. I'm just trying to understand, I just want answers. I love Tom-Tom, and his memory is everlasting, residing in the hearts of his family and friends. I also pray that Kevin do some intensive soul searching, and learns the true meaning of exactly what it means to be a child of God. Peace be with you all!

I have worked with families of victims of violent crime, so I have some understanding of the great deal of pain your family is going through, and know the questions you might have over this horrible act of violence. I wish I could express how truly sorry I am, however for that there are no words. I understand that there will always be a missing place in your family - and pray for all those suffering from the loss of this young man's life, your brother, your unlce, your son and your best-friend. I wish I could provide answers, but Kevin's family has just as many questions. We don't understand why this happened, we are neither a racist nor a violent family and neither was Kevin (we have no idea what he was thinking or why this happened). Had anyone saw this coming their surely would have been an intervention but we were truly blindsided by this, I wish we saw an opportunity to stop this! I am truly touched by your words of understanding and I pray that God will settle the hate that caused or the hate that might be caused by this tragedy.

I thank you as well for your deep sympathy. Let not this situation progess anymore. Leave it in God's hands. I plead with all of Tom-Tom's fellow family and friends not to take this out on Kevin's family. Trust me, I've been there and it only makes matters worse. God blesses everyone with the gift of forgiveness. I pray that you claim your blessing. If your heart contains hate, that makes you no better than Kevin, so I pray that you rid your heart of it, because hate doesn't heal. Love you Tom-Tom. You served your purpose.

I deeply thank you for seeing both sides of the situation, none of Kevin's family saw this coming, he is an amazing Son, Brother, Cousin, and friend. If anyone knew he would do this, it would have quicky been stopped. So please understand that lashing at his family will do no good. We all want answers just as much you do. and we have none.

i honestly feel you are geniune with you response. you are absolutely right about when you say "lashing out" to your family will do no good because it won't. it makes the situation worst. i guess its just the first reaction that everyone has because of the pain everyone is feeling. i see you all are shocked as well. we are all in the same boat looking for answers. may peace be with everyone!!!
