Everybody has his picture, they were given out at his funeral. It's funny how everyone has something to say now but when he was with us nothing was said. It was all good.

Obviously you do, and so does everyone else who visits the site. It's so sad they you all seem to take joy in the fact that there may have been some indescretions in this mans life. He was only human just like you and me and I am sure you all have a few yourselves. I visit because I am really surprised and dissapointed at my Jamaican community. you all turned out in droves in the rain and all for his funeral and now you all trash him with no regard for his family or anyone else who may have a favorable opinion of him. Remember he has a child or children who may one day come across this on the internet so please, before you post your speculations, opinions, thoughts, or whatever else keep that in mind. Think of the golden rule "DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE DONE UNTO YOU". This goes for his family too, I hear you all are treating his wife like garbage and I have heard some really nasty things being said about her but remember she is a child of god and NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST HER SHALL PROSPER. TOUCH NOT THE LORD'S ANNOINTED.
Ok, I am off my soapbox now. Oh, one more thing-it is the love of money that is the root of all evil.

OK one more thing, John Lewis I understand that you are the godfather of Courtney's daughter. Do you have any idea what that means? Instead of you all talking against his wife and bickering about money, which by the way does NOT BELONG TO YOU or your family, you should step up and be there for his little one. How you feel about his wife does not matter, you all were never a part of their lives so what does it matter now. Also when you all are having your discussions be careful who you talk to because just like how you all are talking about his wife is the same way people are talking about you and your wife, how you all stole a large sum of money that he trusted you with. And your mother and her young filandering husband. what goes around comes around. FYI

Are you jamaican? Because you have done the exact same thing that these people are doing, but that's beside the point. Its really sad that these things are being said on the internet. A life is lost and you people have the audacity to be talking about money, affairs, kids. I mean really people he was only human. Yes he made mistakes, but so what. I will back you on this. His family is a piece of shit. I have personally heard people talking about his wife in public places and for that GOD should strike them down. Claudette is a good person. She was a good wife to Courtney. How dare you people. His family I do hope you are reading this. His family is no good and its ashame that you are behaving in this manner.

it seems that you are defending him. how would you like it if he was sleeping with your brothers daughter. It's sickening. He was a grown man could,nt he have find a woman instead of a child. He was the one who was married and look what he went and did fuck his friends daughter. In fact he was with her the night before he died. To what I have heard people talking about on the streets, he left out of her bed and then went home to his wife. He had no respect for his wife so I dont know who you are defending this man. He had no honor. Sleep wid im friend daughter please. He gave Rushell all the power coming to his funneral and acting like she is his wife bawling and carrying on like that before his wife and family. How can you defend this man actions.

Say what you will, it won't change a thing. He is gone. You and others sound so angry, WHY? Don't you think that Rushell was old enough to know better? she knew he was her dads friend didn't she? She even knows his wife and that didn't stop her. Yes he should have know better but so should she. In case you haven't noticed, life goes on so relax and say a prayer for his daughter, she is the real victim in all of this.

Oh and Rushell carrying on like that made herself look like a total idiot. Who flaunts an affair when a man is being funeralized with his wife and family present. He may not have had any respect for his wife but she has TOTAL respect for herself and that's more that I can say for rushell.
