  • So i knew Elray from school; college, we went to Everest together for a while. He was such a sweet person. I remember the first day he came to class & i had to give him a massage, aww he was laughing & giggling the while time; like i was tickling him. I remember talking to him & asking him questions to try & distract him from the tickle & from laughing, but it wasnt working. The whole class was calling him tickle-me-elray instead of tickle-me-elmo. Hahaha. After that we exchanged numbers & i got to know him on a deeper level. Whenever we’d text, talk on the phone or even kick it, i always had a smile on my face. I remember the week before this nightmare happened, he wanted me to come see him again and i couldn’t, i had work to do. I remeber the text, “ok luv but i wanna see you now fuck.” (I remember the a’s he texted use to be @’s) Well anyways, i could only promise him next week, that’ll come see him next week. I wish i would just forgot about everything that day & went to see him. He was really truely such a sweet person, whether you got to see it or not. He will very much be missed. As well as that unforgettable Louisiana accent of his. Gonna miss hearing from you Elray..R.i.P luv

  • I’ve known Elray for some time now, since he came to Louisiana to my high school and started to date a friend of mine. He was NEVER a quiet person! (LOL) I remember the first time I met him, he walked in our school gym and he said “AYE YO” as loud as possible, getting everyone’s attention. From that day, I knew that he was going to be a funny guy! Even when he was in the band, poor thing couldn’t blow that big ol’ tuba, but he tried and made everyone laugh at his efforts. I must say, for the short amount of time that I’ve known him, he was a cool guy and it’s such a shame that someone had to take his life away like that. My prayers go out to his family. May he rest in peace.

  • R.I.P ELRAY…..YUR GONNA BE MISSED AND THE WAY YU USE TAH SAY {YEROOOOOOOOOO} WASZ SO FUNNY WELL NOW YOUR GOIN TAH A BETTA PLACE WHERE YU DONT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT PAIN….YOUR FAMILY ARE IN MY PRAYERS
