 Its hard to believe that Im not going to chill with frenchy anymore, for 6 years almost everyday I'd be chilling with french and none of us will forget those times. You meant alot more than you thought to people french and I hope wherever you are your happy. The squads always got a spot for you.
 Miss you bro.

Harry Cozort

 Words cant even explain how much I miss you, but you didnt deserve what happened to you. You were a great guy who was very smart and loving. When i herd about all of this I didt want to believe it because I didnt want it to be true. You were a bigger brother to me and my brothers bestfriend who also misses you dearly. I cant stop looking out the frot door becaus I keep thinking your coming, but your not, but you will never be forgotten because you wee an important person in me and my familys life. I love you Travis.

Jayonna (your bf Nikolas sister) Pope

 You were and always will be my brother. We had our times when we fought and argued but the next day it was all in the past and that's what makes us all true friends. You may have left but you'll never be gone to me.


Dru I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling... I am so deeply sorry for your loss... I am here for you if you need anything at all... There are no words to comfort you in this time of grief... But I am sending love and hugs to you my dear old friend. Prayers are with you and your family.

Your Friend, Lori Mulholland


 I met frenchy by my step brother Nik Zulli I love frenchy so much as a brother, We joke and laugh with him alot mostly everyday he comes over, " Frenchy I hate rock " lol. I will really miss you and now i can't see you know more until i meet with you in heaven.&#9829;

Travis Hewitt, I met you through my step brother Nikolas Zulli. We got closer through the years and to be honest, your like the big brother I never had. We share many memories, and we are alot alike, I think that's why we bonded so much. Our sarcasm, and love for music and instruments, and also graphic story writing. The last words you said to me were, " See ya later" and Frenchy, its true and no doubt that I will see you later. Thank you for signing my birthday card, it means alot. We all love you and miss you like crazy!
Rest In Peace Travis, I love you and you will always be remembered.
 See ya later<3

Frenchy...I don't even know what to say right now. I miss you bro. You were and will always be my brother. We had so many memories together...funny ones, sad ones, bad ones, crazy ones. I know you wanted The Squad to come back together and it's gonna happen now...I know you're up there smiling. I miss you man. I don't want to believe that you're gone but I know I have to realize it. I hate the fact that I wasn't around a lot before you passed but I'm going to make it up to you man. I promise you. I love you bro...I'm gonna miss you.
