Sometimes the best gems come from the hardest rocks, and it may be hard to really understand their beauty because you can’t wrap your mind around the work it would take to crack them. Although beauty lies within, we often miss it, because our eyes are stuck on the rock. To us that rock looks bad, but to the gem, that rock is a hero. And yes, the rock may block the gem’s beauty but it also blocks its pain. Yet when the rock wears down and the gem’s beauty is exposed, you have no choice but to fall in love. Omar may have had a rough exterior but he was a beautiful person to his family and to the people who really knew and loved him

“What's up cuz? I still can't believe that you’re gone, but your soul and spirit are always in my heart. I can't help but think about the last time we talked. I said ‘O, I need your help with this garage door’, and you said ‘That's it? I thought we was about to tear the city up’. All I could do was laugh and shake my head. But you always held me down when I needed you, so you know its not goodbye bro. I will see you later. Luv Ray” Ramone Turner
