  • Naim Rasheed

    I worked with Maurice for the past two and a half years. Maurice was a great guy who bout a smile to everyones face. Maurice always had a way of cheering everyone up no matter how bad your day was going. People are on here being ignorant making statements that they have no clue about. Maurice was no thug or lived his life that way and did not deserve this. The whole Sanders family are in my prayers I lost a good friend so I can only imagine how u feel but stay up and remember he is in heaven bringing happiness to everyone there god must have needed him much love Naim Rasheed

  • Bev Victor

    Maurice was not some black gang banger that deserved to die on the streets like some animal!! He was a hard working young man, that brought joy to all he came in contact with. It was an honor to have worked with him. His family can be at peace knowing he was loved & respected by many many people. Can you creeps that are sleathering around the streets? God is watching you & I hope you burn in hell. You killed yet another good guy, shame on you, bet no one writes anything like this about you you piece of garbage.

  • P. Chez

    Maurice: An honest hard working intelligent kind and gentle man. I’ve never heard an unkind word from him. Never saw him perform an ill-act. Very respectful to young and old the same. An example for us all. Prayers to this family and many blessings. Prayers for comfort, courage to change what we can, wisdom and knowledge. Maurice, like a nephew to me. I’ve known him over 9yrs. May you rest in peace. You will be missed, greatly. MY PEOPLE: PLEASE STOP THE KILLING, I AM BEGGING YOU, PLEASE.

  • Joanne

    Ashley calm down. There will always be ignorant ppl in the world. I am white & knew Maurice as a sweet heart & upstanding young man. Friday before I left work I patted him on the back. I am so sorry for your loss. I will be praying for you & your family…
