I just saw this post about Terrell's death.

Like many of you, I often reached out to him, trying to get him to get help, escape his pimp, etc.

As as he said those things to you, he said them to me.

I know he was hurting, I just never knew about the rest of his family.

I lost a friend to domestic and sexual violence (she endured it from her husband for 17 years). It angered me that she could not reach out for help, or take the advice and resources I gave her and make an attempt to get help.

She was terrified of her husband, and his father. She felt they were omnipotent and they would track her down and kill her.

I'm sure Terrell felt the same way.

It is with a mixture of grief and anger that I think of his life, and his death.

I, too, hope he finds the peace in death that he could not find in life.

Jes, Terrell was a real good man and I know of others he saved in NYC too. And I know of men here he cared for here and helped.

He once asked me if it mattered that he wa African American and wore ink.. I told him I cared for him because I was lucky to know him from the inside and what was inside was all so good.

Words here may not all make sense but words won't take anything from his legacy or from what many of us know made him remarkable.

Jesper I'm proud to have been trusted by Tman and to have had his help. The same goes for you Exhale.

Be well all and yea, think kindly about Terrell as he thought kindly of each of us.

Oh no!

I had no idea.

Thanks Kieth for posting and Jes for enlightening us on his life.

I feel so sad. It is so sad, but i know he isnt feeling pain now, of any kind, i hope.

This is just overwhelming.

take care all, i love and care about you!

peace

paul

I did not writethis but promised to post it:

Rest in Peace Terrell
Born so sweet and pure
With everything to gain
Into a world that let you down
Took from you, and dealt you pain

Yet for all this world did to you
There is something that's still alive
This piece of you will live forever
That's your spirit and your drive

It breaks my heart to write this
For doing this means i agree
To accept that this is not a bad dream
That you're really gone, aged just 23

Remember that time we laughed and joked
At how it takes a lot to make us cry
You're probably shaking your head at me now
I cant believe it, I cant believe this is goodbye

All those things you had planned to do
It was gona be okay
It wasnt supposed to end like this
It wasnt. Not this way

Reading over old chat logs
You know I really did care
You'll never ever know how much
I wanted you out of there

I would've done anything for you guys
I would've helped you in any way
I never told you but i broke down bad
Reading your message on new years day

You had your little crew
These people knew you well
They had the ability to touch your heart
And get beyond your protective shell

There is one thing that makes me happy
You found it - take it to the sky
That amazing thing called unconditional love
As we both know, some things money just cant buy

You had so much left to give
And so much more living to do
How any god can justify this
For this I've not a clue

So as you're greeted at the gates of heaven
All broken, battered and torn
For all the good you did in your life
Eternal happiness is now born

I can hear you telling me 'dont trip'
And i'm trying, I really am
My cat never came home that time you know
Take care of him will you, his name is Sam

Some of the puppies never made it either
You'll recognise them up there too
I guess we protect each other
I didnt have the heart to tell either of you

Every time I hear The Voyage
I'll think of you and smile
I'm glad I got the chance to know you
Even though it was just for a short while

You've been taken way too soon
Why, I will never understand
I hope you rest in peace now dear Terrell
Its ok. The angels are holding your hand
