James Haggerty... Known as 7/3 to his OYD family. I first came in contact with him on the RapVerse website. From there we went on to help form the OYD rap crew. His music... I still have some with him on it. Great and talented lyricist/artist. You won't be forgotten, bro. OYD will keep your name and your music alive.

Your fellow group member, ILLGEE.

Denise, Willow and Darlene, We wish we could express the sorrow we feel, just knowing you are bearing a loss so profound. May it comfort you to know that others care......and although words will not wipe away your tears , and hugs might not ease your pain, the memories in your heart forever will remain. Praying that they help you through the difficult times ahead. We love you very much. Richie and Lisa
To darling Jimmy........ “ Good night sweet Prince and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest”. You will be deeply missed. Rest In Peace. 💜
