“In you, O Lord, I put my trust; let me never be put to shame. Deliver me in your righteousness, and cause me to escape, incline your ear to me, and save me. Be my strong refugee, to which I may resort continually, You have given the commandment to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress” Psalms 71:1-3

His Life Tyrin Seandale Whitfield was born July 4, 1994 to Tyrone Whitfield and Tarsha Kerr. He departed this life on Monday, October 7, 2013 in New Orleans, La.

Tyrin displayed so much commitment and dedication, that L.O.O.P hired him as a full time employee in 2011.

"Gone Too Soon" As the days go by it gets harder to accept the fact that you're really gone‌ God needed a hard worker so that explains why he called you home. You were hardworking since "yay high", you were determined and dedicated you had a lot of drive. You had big dreams in mind, you worked more than a grown man, and you truly grew up before your time. Kindhearted, giving and always laughing. A smile that I could never forget. For those of you who didn't quite know who Tyrin was, I'll try to explain:

T The "T" is for trying, you tried everything from volunteering to mentoring you did anything to occupy your time. Y The "Y" is for young, you were a young man with an old soul. R The "R" is for respect; because that's what you gave no matter what others did, you were your own person.

I The "I" is for inspiration, you inspire me to continue my journey in life no matter what obstacles I might face and I know its possible because you did it. N The "N" is for never, because no matter what you never gave up. Saying good-bye is the hardest thing to do, and what hurts the most is not having the opportunity of saying it to you. Because you’re "Gone Too Soon" Tynisha Martin


My Son‌ Tyrin, I will always remember your special, beautiful and caring heart. Your laughter, The warmth that you gave me and your family. You were there for all of us through the good and bad times. No matter what this life may bring me, I will never forget you and will always love you. You could never and will never ever be replaced by anything or another. . You are my baby. You are forever in my heart and my soul. I will always love you son. Your loving mother, Tarsha

My Dearest Tyrin To my best friend and confidant. I don’t know how I will get thru not having you here, but I must find a way somehow. Thru all of our ups and downs you still provided for me and Jeremiah, and I love you for that. I love you for loving my son as our son. I love you because you never gave up on us. This October we celebrated 4 years together. I will never forget those years. You were the sweetest person I have ever known. You showed me unconditional love and for that I will forever love you. Rest in peace my Poonchie. Your dearest friend , Errionne Jordan
