The ceremony was none like I’d ever seen The City of Atlanta came out to pay their respects to my homie and most of them stood up and revealed to everyone what a blessing it was to have known him. The most beautiful part of the ceremony was when over 300 of Dariel’s friends gathered outside for the releasing of the balloons. Just before the releasing we all sang “Amazing Grace” after the song was over we said our silent prayers to him and released the spiritual balloons into the air and watched them vanish into the distance.
