His mother, Shari Hutzell-Young says, “My son was nothing short of a blessing… he has struggled most of his life with Juvenile (Type 1) Diabetes, but never once would I imagine this day… ironically this was his favorite holiday… anyone that knows my son knows he loved to eat, especially on Thanksgiving… he was born on a holiday, St. Patrick’s Day… and trust me he was as feisty as a leprechaun… but he was my pot of gold… I will forever be broken and will never let your memories fade away… may you be at peace now, you deserve this time of rest… I LOVE YOU SHEQUILLE LOWE.”
