This is the most heart-wrenching act of violence I've EVER heard of. It was absolutely no sense in it.Not only did we lose "Congo" that morning but we also lost "MY MEL" and almost lost "MO". Ioved them BOTH and I will miss them. This was NOT drug related nor was it a robbery attempt, It was something that I-myself will NEVER understand. "Congo" (Demarcus Collins) was a VERY loving, caring, reliable friend, father, son and brother. He will be GREATLY missed. He would always know just the right things to say to make you feel better if things weren't going just right. He was also a dedicated friend to all he ALLOWED in his circle. He'd give you the shirt off his back. Always looking out for the "underdog". Rest in peace "Go-Go" (only I call him that.lol) you were a great friend, father, son & my brother. Roe misses you terribly..... we all do. The house seems so empty w/out you there. We will remember you ALWAYS

THIS IS CONTINUED FROM THE ABOVE COMMENT. There are a lot of people blaming Ro for what happened that moring. Saying he could've rushed Jamell or did something. Well think about it, If Roe or ANYBODY tried to do anything, we would be missing someone else. Violence won't help the situation nor will it bring "Congo" back. Roe did all he could. HE was the one who got Jamell to drop the gun and get help to Monica & Congo. Had he not done so Jamell was going to shoot up the ENTIRE house. So basically even though he couldn't prevent this tragedy from happening he saved a number of other lives.We all can say what we'd do if this ever happened to us, but truth be told some of us wouldn't know what to do. Roe has always been a good friend to Congo and he continues to be. I see the pain in this man's face everyday. He's hurting for the everybody involved. we all must learn from this not bicker amongst friends and family. We all loved Congo and will miss him every minute. Let's focus on rebuilding our lives not rehashing this terrible incident. ........................ P.S. Monica is awake !!!!!!!!!!! Praise God. We love you Mo, and we still Love Jamell to. He's somebody just like you..... A child of God
