I miss you and still have our silly pictures from childhood.. I remember going to your house off Minnesota Ave for my first house party at 16 years old! We had so much fun!! You just had a glow about you that made everyone happy. I will always live for you, smile for you and will see you when it's my trip to Heaven! I love you and you will never be forgotten!

Oh God, almost 7 years later and it stills tear me up when I come and read these post! Cee was always a kind person! We went to pretty much allof our grade schools together and shared a godson together. She never deserved this to happen to her! From the things I was told of this nothing a$$ dude, some mornings she used to wake up to a fist to her faec or braids being cut out of her hair when she got up in the morning, him being abusive for just no reason at all. That's not the actions of a "man" that was raised right or sweet, caring and loving of her. Heavily drugged my ___!He pled guilty because he IS guilty! I give much respect to his ex girlfriend that sent her condolences to us (fam and friends)because she understood that loosing a loved one to the hands of some coward is hard. His mom....... have several \_\_!!!! Cee I'm missing you like crazy..... Rest on baby girl!

Rest in Peace Cee... We haven't all come together for a cookout in your honor in awhile so I feel one is long overdue. Your birthday is in a few days so it may not be this year. But maybe for your 30th we can all get back together and do it up like we did for your 25th! I need to call Scoop, Candy, Lisa, and the rest of the crew and get on the ball! Anyway... I was just thinking of you.

Love always,

It is so hard to believe that 4 years ago today, my little cousin's life was cut short by someone who professed to love her. The pain is still so deep and I still see it in my Aunt's eyes every time I see her. I see it in my Grandmother's eyes as well. I don't think that we will ever completely heal from this disaster. I have read the posts from my family as well as Richard's. I am trying to grow in my walk with the Lord and I know that forgiveness is a huge part of this walk, but maybe I'm just not ready to take this step with Richard. He had no right to take Silecia from us! He has no right to say that he loves her, because love DOES NOT hurt, so I know that it doesn't kill! He wanted to POSSESS her, not love her. My daughter will be leaving for college in two months and I refuse to let her leave the because she has to be close enough for me to get to her if she needs me. This is not an overprotective mother who is afraid to let go - this is a woman who is afraid that my daughter may fall in love with some idiot and I need to be close enough to notice the warning signs of abuse. Crazy right? Not really... if Silecia was closer to home, we would have seen the signs and none of us would be on this post. To Richard's mother: you can and will believe all that you want regarding this whole situation, but was not mentioned by either side is that YOUR SON RICHARD beat Silecia horribly before he shot her. There were marks and bruises all over her body (per the coroner). So.... I guess that was an accident as well. You believe whatever you choose and whatever allows you to sleep at night. We know the truth, and so does Richard. God will definitely take care of him, but I'm pretty sure that street justice is getting it's turn in prison right now. I'm not trying to be hateful, I'm just stating a fact - we all know what happens to men who abuse women/children when they become incarcerated. This will not bring Selicia back to us, but to know that he isn't living the good life brings a little comfort to me. You have the comfort of being able to write, accept phone calls and visit him - I have that. No need to reply, as you see.... I'm really never on here.
I was moved to look tonight and saw this comment. I think this is a comment from Lisa? I have tried to reach out in many ways to find you. I left some flowers at the door of your grandmothers with my number on it. Out of respect we have tried to give your family space. Not having an opportunity to share with you has been very difficult. This is so hard to do...and after all of these years still very hard to do. I hope that you have had a chance to see the witness statements of the investigation of the accident. The main eye witness statement should be very eye opening to you. You will then see how the bruises found got there. It was not a fight. I can tell you that.

I went to Tech World High school wit Cee, she was a good dancer. I remember when Cee, and Javon Drake use to dance all the time in the health class room. We were on the same basket ball team, and also attended a ministry together that traveled in DC and VA. Im sitting here just thinking about her, it's like when I think about her I can see her face. I understand where Richard acts came from by reading his mothers comments, I don't care how much information she knows or think she knows. Richard moms need to see a psychologist, she would of never been in that hospital if it wasn't for her son. Richard mother is putting the blame on someone else, your son was wrong period. That is what probably drove his actions to do the things that he has done, when will she stop acting like he is a child and let him grow,. I can tell just by her comments, every time Richard got in trouble he would go to his mother and she would try to justify his actions as if they are right. Maybe his mom need to check in at St E. Because it seems to me whatever mental problem she has it was passed to her son. I can tell she has some mental issues just by reading her comment. My heart is hurt after I read her comments. I wish Cee fam love and blessings, and I pray that God remains watching over her fam.
Cruelty is not a good way to be in life. Your comments are cruel and insensitive in a situation like this. You are right, after going thru what we all have been going thru, it is very traumatic and really does require mental health support. I have only offered love to all that use this media to find a way to cope. The newspaper writers that host this blog will have a lot to say one day with this conversation about humanity. I only pray that all that have been traumatized by this can find healing and support and can find help to get thru. This includes you my love. Richard is responsible and if this was no accident, he would not have my support. I have seen the court documents, I was there when this took place and I know that this was a terrible accident, in really horrible and unfortunate circumstances. The truth will come to the light in divine time.

i often come on here to see the posts people leave about Silecia, Richard, and the whole situation. I am just seeing the comment left by Richard's mother and to you (his mother) i say that i would think that you would think about the things that you say before you say them. There is nothign that gives you the right to assume that you are the only one that knew the situation that the two of them were in...your son was/is an abuser and a jealous individual and that is all there is to it! Silecia told my grandmother everything not you i am sure and when you visited them in GA you should have been aware and helped Silecia to get out of the situation, i don't care if that is your son or not. And to say that the coroner ruled that it could have been an accident is BS. I was there in GA immediately after the situation happened. not you! we sat down with the DA, detectives, people from the medical examiners office and the funeral home. not you! YOU CANNOT SHOOT SOMEBODY DIRECTLY IN THE FRONT OF THERE HEAD FROM LESS THAN 5 FEET AWAY AND IT BE RULED AN ACCIDENT! let's be real. sorry to break it to you but in case you didn't know your son, Richard Pannell, is crazy and is lucky he had a good enough defender to let him know to plead guilty when he did because he would have definetly been facing more time then what he got and YES he was going to be found guilty! period. there is no questioning is innocence. I too want to write Richard and ask him why...how could you? yes, you have suffered a loss and i had that explained to me when the death of my cousin first happened, but remember, you can still talk to him, write him, see recent photos of him, visit him if you wanted. We can't do that with Silecia. Lastly, if you had any remorse or respect for Silecia and my family you would have reached out to apologize for yours sons stupid and selfish actions and send some type of condolenses to my family. As i said in a previous post, the only one to do so was his father. Because of your son i couldn't visit her that summer, she couldn't meet me in N.C. to be there when i started my college career like she was going to, she couldn't finish school like she was about to and now it's 3 years later and she will not be at my graduation in May. Because of your son. let's just look at it like that and maybe then you can understand the grief that my family and Silecia's friends are going through.
you all need to cut his mother some slack (Richard and I had a really good relationship in high school) in the state of md he was a very laid back guy with a heart of gold...(NO MATTER WHAT HE DID HE IS STILL HER SON AND SHE LOVES HIM NOT ONE TIME DID SHE SAY SHE AGREED WITH HIS ACTIONS BUT UNDERSTAND 2 LIVES ARE GONE HIS LIFE AND THE BEAUTIFUL SELECIA (I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE HELL MY FRIEND WAS THINKING WHEN THE HELL HE PULLED OUT THAT DAMN GUN AND SHOT HER AND I DO NOT SEE HOW ANYONE CAN SAY WELL IF THE HOSPITAL WOULD HAVE TRANSPORTED HER SOONER THEN WHAT?(NO THAT GUN SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAVE COME INTO PLAY (BUT LET BE REAL YOU ALL A MOTHERS LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL THE SAME WAY IF OUR KID WAS BEHIND THE TRIGGER AND HERS WAS IN FRONT ON THE BULLET.....SHE DID NOT TAKE HER LIFE SHE LOSS HER SON IN THE PROCESS OF ALL OF THIS AS WELL SO LETS JUST PRAY HE GET'S THE HELP HE NEEDS AND CONTIUE TO LIFT BOTH FAMILY IN PRAYE
