Their mother, Kimberly Morrison is strong.  "I'm most proud of how much love they poured into other people, that was a blessing unto me.  My boys are gracious, kind. My boys are electric, My boys are giving. My boys are special," says Mrs. Morrison.

Kaylen was entering his senior year at Cass Tech.  He was in the band and passionate about Fellowship Chapel, pa stored by Reverend Wendell Anthony, who was getting ready to make Kaylen a worship leader at the church

Keenon was a devoted family man, faithful father to his 4-year-old son and a mentor to many men in the community.

The Morrison family wants to spread this message: Do something with the time you have while you have it.
