My dearest brother Ty'Quan Micheal Manney.

My name is Ty'Quan Micheal Manney. I'm 19 years old. My birthday is March 7th, 2001. I'm was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I did spend a few years in Mississippi with my family when I was younger. I love my family, friends, mentors, and my community. I'm loving, smart, funny, determined, thoughtful, and bright. Just to name a few. I'm very active in my community and at school. In fact, I just celebrated my graduation from Highschool in 2019. That was a really big accomplishment for me.

On December 8th, 2019 I was shot to death 10 times on the curb of the picture you see above. I took that photo months before I knew that would be the spot my body would be laid out; bleeding the life out of me. I had no idea that my time was running out so soon. The life I knew in that body, on earth was complete gone. I leave behind a beautiful mother, an amazing sister, and a very loving brother. I miss the 3 of you very much. I can feel that you, our family, and friends miss me too. I want you all to know that I served time my there and if I had the choice to stay I would've with no hesitation.

I want you all to know that you're perfect just the way you are. You all are filled with so much light, love, and greatness. Don't ever change who you really are, and please keep me in your heart. I know that some days are a lot harder than others. Whenever you have a tough time accepting my transition always remember my love is everywhere you are. There's nowhere you can go that I won't be with you. I am your protector, and I'm always thinking of you.

I love and miss you all. Until we meet again
