Maurice was a good man. I remember when I was younger he used to come by and shoot basketball with me. He loved fashion and sneakers. The most important thing is seeing him give his life to Jesus Christ.

I grew up across the street from the Hills, Maurice was a great friend and musician. I remember us all gathering at the small spot in the backyard to listen to the music. We all had a great street of friends our parents were friends as well. My condolences to Willie, Darlene, Angela and his son family and friends. Philippians 4:4-8. Brenda Barnes Scott
