A rose for deceased friend Kasey Jay of Pontiac, Michigan

In our modern world in which rudeness is a way of life for many uneducated people, many of you might say that internet relationships don t matter and that friendships don t exist on the computer…I don t agree.

When you talk to a person on the net, no matter if you are nice or not, you are talking to a REAL person. When you are hurting through disgraceful and rude words, you are actually hurting some real feelings.

I have developed, through the years, besides my real life friendships, some friendships through the net. I also had the chance to talk to several of them cyber friends on the phone. I was even lucky to meet a fellow blogger who travelled 350 kms to meet me.

Kasey Jay of Pontiac was one of those dear internet friends. We both shared a common dream of success in the hip hop business and i did anything to help promote Kasey Jay s Flosse Wear, the best I could.

Not only did we share our dreams and hopes, Kasey also had this genuine passion for rap music in common with me.

Like me, he knew what it meant to come from a hostile environment and to keep grinding, having been raised by a single mom in the ghetto. Kasey was one of those young entrepreneurs that is very much needed in America. He was a model of courage and hard work to me.

At only 28, he had to die. The circumstances of his death are still unclear.

Dear Kasey, thanks for being a friend and a confident for a little while. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me on the Detroit scene. You will always have a special place in my heart. I will never forget you.

I will bring a symbolical rose to you today made of scented thoughts that represent the respect and friendship i had for you.

Your friend always and ever,

Isabelle

  1. Isa,

    Some of the best friendships are created online and i’m glad, cuz i would have never met you and aquired such a great friendship…

  2. I have some new details about my friend s death…he was found stabbed at his appartment in Auburn Hills, Mi…his jugular vein was cut…his brother found him last Friday and the police concludes to a suicide…that s a real weird situation…Kasey Jay was a positive person, i never heard any negative word in his mouth, his business began to become successful, he had a lot of projects in the making…i was supposed to promote him further, so why would such a guy commit suicide…i cannot believe that! i am convinced he was murdered… i will keep you updated…

  3. that shit is so sad…i used to talk a lot to Kasey on my space and he wanted to associate me to his business…he was a real good person with a good spirit…i will miss him…

    it looks like there is a lot of hatred in the D…many talents, but much jealousy that spoils evth…that’s what i noticed from an outsider s eye…

Kasey you are missed so much ..an you will never be forgotten..we love you buddy…Jenn ,Shaun & the girls

  6. Kasey was an extra special and very close friend of mine! I really fell in love with him, and he knew it since I’d often drive 11hrs from VA to Michigan just to spend quality time with him. Unfortunately, we had a disagreement and both of us being stubborn…we stopped talking for a few months. I began to really miss him and decided to swallow my pride and email him. At that time..I found out that 6mths prior…he’d lost his life. I also do not believe that he killed himself…as he was a very positive person, but then again…who knows why people commit suicide. I love him and he will forever be missed!!!!

  7. Although I never met him in person I know that he was not the suicidal type…I really doubt that he committed suicide…he had a real positive spirit…I’ll never forget you, Kasey:)
