Kemba Josiah I will always remember you June 2, 2017
We were neighbors. We were young. Like 6 or 7 young. And I remember you. I remember you often. My son kind of looks like you so he helps me remember you too. You were my first best friend. We were young. We were innocent. We used to play in Century Oaks with no care in the world. That's what I remember the most. My young heart will always love your young heart. 

Lennis ,

My man ,my ace one of the most kind hearted persons i' ve ever met. I remember meeting you August of 1999 and I remember you talkin about my clothes. We were from different places but shared  a common fondness for females and fun. From that day we grew to be the best of friends our brotherly fights , long vacations when we were supposed to be college students trips or tours I shall say. I remember wherever we showed up it was a full blown party to follow (G.I.C) From the District to Durham we were sure to have it up. The gentlemens clubs , the trips on those interstates man, my brother from another mother I miss you LP . Always there to bring to bring a smile to face , and always there to remind me to get the money first (lol) I remember you opened the store/restaurant in your dorm room , that propelled me to heights I believed to be unthinkable at the time but you made me believe I could do it. And because of you I have seen so much and done so much . Our long talks on them latenite pick up trips on you telling me what to do and I would get mad like what can you tell me you a year older , but when I think on it you always had my best interest at heart and for that I love you ................ Until we meet again ....... GET IT CRUNK.... I LOVE YOU LPZZZZZZZZY

I just remember you coming into you Enloe High, ya 1st day, the new kid, all the girls were jocking, lol.  When I finally met you I was like 'yea he cute but shy as hell' , lol.  You became a good friend since, you was blessed with that quality.  Just straight easy going.  When I found out you left this world I wasn't even in NC and so I found out a little late so i wasn't able to say my good-byes, but I feel bless to get this chance right here LENNIS RIP!!!!

     You will forever be in my heart as a kind,sweet,funny,special, blessed young man. I met you at work in RTP and I remember my very first day at work you were soo kind to me, just nice not asking for anything in return just kind. I remember at work you were always doing funny stuff to make us all laugh. There was a particular Nelly song I remember you singing it was soo funny. One day you recorded it on your phone and came by my desk to show me what you had recorded. It was the funniest thing Ive ever seen. Now everytime I hear that song I have to smile…the last time I saw you was at Bike Fest in SC, you said you were coming to visit us in Vegas, and I remember how happy you were. I took a picture of you that weekend with my best friend named Patrice, I keep that picture in my home and I remember you everyday Lennis. You will NEVER be forgotten for your warm smile and funny jokes.. and your Bohanglezz (Bojangles) wing meals..I miss you man…but save me a spot in line (just like at the club) and as always..I know you will get my in


Love always,

Hendrick Polanco My Deepest Condolences November 20, 2018

My deepest condolences.  May these few words from the Holy Scriptures bring you comfort in your time of grief...

John 11:32-45

32 And so Mary, when she arrived where Jesus was and caught sight of him, fell at his feet, saying to him: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping and the Jews that came with her weeping, groaned in the spirit and became troubled; 34 and he said: “Where have YOU laid him?” They said to him: “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus gave way to tears. 36 Therefore the Jews began to say: “See, what affection he used to have for him!” 37 But some of them said: “Was not this [man] that opened the eyes of the blind man able to prevent this one from dying?”

38 Hence Jesus, after groaning again within himself, came to the memorial tomb. It was, in fact, a cave, and a stone was lying against it.39 Jesus said: “TAKE the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it is four days.”40 Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” 41 Therefore they took the stone away. Now Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but on account of the crowd standing around I spoke, in order that they might believe that you sent me forth.” 43 And when he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Laz´a·rus, come on out!” 44The [man] that had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his countenance was bound about with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Loose him and let him go.”

45 Therefore many of the Jews that had come to Mary and that beheld what he did put faith in him;

Tirrell Honablew My Thoughts and Prayers March 29, 2011
I'm stopping by to send my condolences to each and every person whose family was affected by these deaths.  I didn't know either two of the guys, but I've gotten a chance to meet the mother of Lennis Jr. today.  We actually work for the same agency, and met today for the first time.  She was so kind and wanted a second of my time, to ask if I were saved, then she told me about her son.  I too was in a similar situation as Lennis and the other guys, but luckily the robbers decided to let us go and just leave.  I do believe today that was by the grace of God that I am still here.  Even though I am not saved, I do love Lord and have recently started going back to church.  I just had to stop through and say a few things because it was very heartfelt as I read the brochure from Mrs. Harris. My prayers are still with you guys and your families.

Lennis!! OMG! OMG!OMG!!! Is what I continue to say eventhough it will be 5 years next month. I just wish things could of been so different. I think about you soooo much and sometimes I have to catch myself and wonder is it normal to grieve this long. We shared lots of memories together and had a special bond. Lennis, I pray for your family and sometimes when I recognize them I want to speak just to tell them that you were an AWESOME friend to me. I hope you are proud of me honey because I have been really "good." Sometimes I am cracking up thinking of the times we had at Fiesta or the Supper Club having a good time with together. I just wish I could of talked to you one last time that day before you were brutally taken from all the friends and family that love you. Ok ok... I won't keep going on forever so I am going to stop. I miss youuuuuuuu though My Lennis Harris!!! RIP FRANK!

Love, Na

Steven Riley Good Friend November 19, 2009
I would like to say that Lennis was a great person. We spent alot of time together when we were in middle and high school. We played sports together and we hung out. Lennis changed my life. I talk to Lennis all the time and I know he is looking down on me and his family. When temptation comes, sometimes I can hear Lennis telling me to do the right thing.  I call on him when I need him sometimes, and I am convinced that God works through him.

To his mother,

I remember coming to the house and he always had respect for you, and he always talked about you. I remember that you treated us like your own, and we always felt love when you were around. Everyone loved Lennis!

Please be encourage and may God's grace and strength be with the family and friends.
