I don't know you, and didn't know your son. I live in Welland, and I was riding my bike yesterday and decided to take a break and walk around the cemetery where your son is. Your sons' memorial caught my attention, and I thought the poem on the back was beautiful. I have three daughters, 17, 12, and 8. I couldn't possibly imagine the pain of losing one of them, and my heart breaks for your loss. I was intrigued enough to look him up on google, and I found this site-- Only to learn of the tragic way your son died. Your son reminded me to hug my girls longer and tighter, and to cherish every moment with them. I know there are no words, but at the very least, I wanted to let you know that your son touched another person in a positive way. I will be sure to stop by and say hello to him every now and then.

I remember him as one the polite outgoing boy any mother could ever ask for he was so ambishous he stood up for what he believed in i remember him has a little boy ask for a change for the ice cream truck he said it so cute i could never say no. I will always remember that bright smile. Who ever did this should man up n take resposebility for your actions, you were brave enough to do it so own up

LOL oh man live times. and the timme you threw a ninja turtle at tyrelles head, HA that was just tooo jokes. I miss all our times as kids and the part that hurts the most is that we didn't really talk how we use to back in the day, but i styll seen you alot, i miss your smile so much, the way your shoulders would just jump when you laughed, it's was soooo funny and cute, you were like a lil brother to me. I'm going to miss seeing you and stuff, mossin and talking bout how were gunna grow up in the halls. Do you remember when me and you and treena were in the hall and we were talkin bout what we wanted to happen at our funerals? I remeber you said nobody dress up, and NO body cry for me.

By MAGGIE RIOPELLE/Tribune Staff WELLAND — A nice, funny boy with an infectious smile is how friends are remembering Adrian Johnston, who just more than a week ago was gunned down in Toronto at the age of 14. Mourners gathered in Welland Tuesday, where the teens mother has family, to pay last respects at All People's United Church. Adrian, the 18th homicide victim in Toronto this year, was later laid to rest next to his grandmother at an undisclosed local cemetery. I just knew him from around, I played

They had no right to take you from us. We never got to see u grow and see what u would become. You were still a child. I hope u made it home to gran. I know she was waiting for you with open arms. And I hope you are at peace now. I'm sorry for the time that passed that we didn't see each other. There are no words to express the void this will leave in our family. R.I.P. Sweet Young Prince! xoxo
