I attended MVSU with Kendrell and I have not forgotten about him either. I consistently search the internet for updated information of his untimely death. I just want to let Burt and the rest of the Family no I still think of Ken constantly and miss him too.

I also attended MVSU with Kendrell and was also a teammate of his. His mom was a great spirited person, I could see where my boy got it honestly from. I haven't had a chance to chat with the mother since I moved from Dayton,OH to Florida but anyone has any info email me www.danaacademy.com

I still think about Kendrell all the time. He was the sweetest man I've ever dated. I still remember the day we met in the park. Our last conversation haunts me to this day. I argued with him because he was going out of town to play basketball and he was supposed to go somewhere with me. He was so sweet, he wouldn't argue he just laughed a little because he was tickled that I was trippin then he said, "pretty girl I'll call you when I get back, we can go down there anytime." I was being so stubborn and stupid that I went to see my family and stayed a couple weeks, didnt answer his calls thinking I would teach him a lesson. When I called and paged him without a response, I thought he was paying me back. Finally I called his Mom's house and his nephew told me he was gone. I had missed the funeral and everything. So to anybody reading this, dont let the sun set without telling a loved one you love them and dont let a disagreement and pride keep you from a loved one. And to Kendrell's family, I know you all miss him everyday, you are not alone.

Ken is missed everyday and thought of often. It is obvious by the previous comments that he meant a lot to many different people. RIP!

Ken will never be forgotten. He is a fixture in my some of my most cherished memories of college (MVSU). We went out several times and I must say that the evenings were always filled with laughter! I would sometimes play angry just to see what he would do to try to put a smile on my face. Ken wouldn't have to do very much. He'd just open that mouth of his and in less than a couple of seconds, I'd be laughing my head off not even remembering why I was mad in the first place. As I reflect over those days, I can't help but feel sad that he left us so soon. But, because I know that God is a good God and He allows everything to happen for a reason, I am comforted in knowing that one day, we will all understand it by and by. We will meet again!

Kendrell was very important to me and I miss him dearly. He was a great person and I looked up to him. I want Burt to know I love her and miss her. And through God we will both see his bright smile again. Love you always Hatcher.

I remember as a kid living around the corner from Kenny Blue. As popular as he was he never made me feel like I wasn't cool enough to hang with him. I remember one time when we were kids and I had house chores to do and I hadn't done them he said man yo mom gonna kick yo a$$! Lol!! He said I got the dishes you get the rest. Saved me a butt whoopin too! Little things like that made him who he was to so many people. So on this day I would like to say Happy Birthday Big Homie! You are truly missed!

I miss Ken always wonder what he would've been he had so much to live for. I met him the year he died but it felt like I knew him and his family for many years. My daughter loved him too she was only 4 years old when he died. He use to watch her when I had to work . Ken was definitely one of a kind still not over his death after all these years. I live near his grave site so I still visit.

So how did this Kendrall die? Did he try to punch out a white guy in that knock out game you have and the white guy pulled out a gun? Or was he gunned down in a botched drug sale? Maybe shot by the PO-lice in a car theft chase? What?

I only ask that question because if you've noticed, a lot of the posts in the Maple Hts Topix is geared towards blacks and crimes and how many times do you hear of a younger black dying of natural causes? Not likely. Usually it's from a bullet either from the police,(PO-lice), or a fellow gang bummer.
