My very first Friend since pre-school. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t going to miss you. The first time I met you we were about 4-5 years old at freedom park and you had a mouth full of silver crowns getting buckets on the 10 foot goal and I asked you “How did you learn how to do that?”😂 and the rest was history. I love you Scoota Man you broke my heart this morning. I know you’re having a blast with Alexis right now. Your name will live forever I know I’ll see you again some day my boy. KJ and Tootie yall keep your heads up I wish I knew what to tell the both of you but I can’t begin to imagine what you’re going through right now. #LLM Malik Herbert – Chaulence

A mom and dad back in Randolph County are mourning the loss of their son. I don’t know much about the specifics surrounding his passing, but I do know that Malik Herbert was a special individual who always had a smile on his face and constantly joked in class. He was part of my first group of 8th grade students I ever taught, many of whom are currently around my age when I first met them fresh out of college.
Teaching is an annual investment… I spend hours each week planning and teaching students, while also building personal relationships with them. I quickly learn about their family history, what hobbies or sports interest them, the “student tea”/gossip, and even the personal events that lead to good or bad days. For Malik, he was an athlete, and I watched several sporting events at SERMS while keeping my eyes specifically on him and the others from the Avengers team.
Then, the students leave and I receive a new group the following school year for the entire process to begin again. The yearly cycle is exhausting but worthwhile at the same time.
This is where my investment becomes personal… but this is also where my investment causes me pain when I hear of a student’s passing.
Friends, please say a special prayer for the Ramseur community. This family has already endured the loss of another child, Malik’s sister, who passed away the same year I taught Malik. Love on your littles tonight, no matter how old or young. My children will each receive an extra hug and kiss tonight in honor of Malik. – Katie
So thankful I got to tell him two days ago I love him…so thankful for the memories and being a wonderful friend to my son…We love you Malik Herbert..RIP 🕊🤍🕊🤍🕊🤍Sending prayers to Kristen Johnson and Charles Herbert and the whole family& friends 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 – Shelly
Thank you for being such a good friend to me for all of these years. Thank you for always being such a good friend to Cam’Ron. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t even know Cam. There wasn’t one time I was around you and not cracking up. You always shined where you stood. Your talent was unmatched and your drive was insane. You were one of the hardest working, humble, and genuine people I have ever met. I am beyond grateful to have had you in my life for the past 9 years. Watch over us. We miss you so much.
I love you scooter 🛵 – Nikki
Honestly it still doesn’t even seem real….You we’re such a great person. You would have done anything for me and my group of friends. There was never a dull moment with you around. Never will forget all the good moments and laughs we all shared together. My heart hurts for family and friends. Rest easy Scoot🤍 You’ll be missed Malik Herbert – Ashlynn
Thoughts and prayers out to the Herbert family. RIP to Malik. You were such a kind person and you had the biggest heart I’ve ever seen. No obstacle was ever ever to big for you. I am honored to have gone to school with you and seen you excel in everything you did. You were a role model to so many people, and I looked up to you and how you carried yourself. I aspire to have even half the heart and passion that you carried with you. You could light up a whole room and you invited everyone into every conversation always. I never got the chance to thank you for always being kind and always pushing everyone. I remember we used to talk about how we were always the shortest in middle school and high school, but your heart and drive was unmeasurable, you never let your height stop you & I looked up to that. Thank you for paving the way. Rest easy my friend. – Manuel

This 1 just hits different…🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻👆🏻I love you dude – Chuck
