In her words, Julie said:
“I am so very SAD right now.. I have love this person from a little talkative SINGING BOY to a young Responsible TALKATIVE SINGING ADULT. That smile would always brighten up a room and he has never called me anything other than Mama Faye.
His late-night calls use to scare me but NOT anymore.. he knew it was ok to call at any time.. especially when he didn’t wanna upset his mom who he loved beyond any words of expression. I was so hoping the call I received was some misinformation but it wasn’t. God, please comfort Quindon Tarver family, extended family, many many friends who loved him.
Give them the strength needed to endure this PAIN & emptiness everyone is feeling right now. But one thing we are ALL SURE of he loved the LORD.. so he is absent from our touch but we all know whose touch he can feel now!
You will forever live in my heart & I will always remember our first days with you at 9yrs old riding in my red 2 seater convertible u loved and singing loud as you possibly could..”
