Tracy and Family......I am so very sorry. Words cannot express. Whomever did this didn't have the same heart as DJ, and will suffer tremendously for this senseless act. I didn't know DJ, but because I know you, my heart hurts for you and the family. Kudos to you for having a forgiving heart. It will only strengthen you more and make you stronger person. I love you guys!!!!!! God Bless everyone!! And P.S....Tammy looks just like Doris!!!!

When I first heard that Duane "DJ" Hopkins was no longer here on earth with us i was in the car with my mother than i got a phone call from my sister, she didnt tell me what happened untill 30 minutes in to our convosation. when she finally got it out all i could do is sit there in silence with tears falling down my face because he was like a long lost cousin to me.lol To know that some one you love dearly can be taken from you with out any warnings is crazy. Ily Raven, Ci-Ci, Carlos and aunt Tammy, my prayers goes out to the rest of his family that i dont know.
-P.S watch over us DJ.

Mann i never thought it would be DJ. I had overheard a conversation and they said "DJ got shot, DJ got shot.!" And of all people i would never think it to be Duane. It killed me inside. At first it took a minute for it to actually sink in, but when it did the first phone call i made was to my lil sister. It is truly devastating and this teen on teen and black on black violence needs to end. I wish i could have him back. I wish i could spend at least a little more time with him. I wish the family well and many blessings.
