Really, it is ashame that his family is asking people for $ to bury this man, but on the other hand who thinks about life insurance in their 20's? he was a young man ,i didn't know him but i've heard very nice things about him and he was beautiful,but really people i didn't have life insurance in my 20's, when your in your young years you never really think about death. RIP and whatever took this young mans life let's not 4get people that he was a human being no matter what his life style was!!!!!!!!!!!

You don't know what he died

You don't know what he died from... it very well could have been AIDS! What does Non-Disclose mean? 99% of the time it is AIDS! And? AIDS is an illness as any other... just considered the Gay disease. That man is dead and gone now; he did what he wanted his way and left; may his Soul rest in peace. Amen.

This is a total mess how

This is a total mess how everyone on here is judging this young man for supposedly having AIDS if he did he did and if he didnt he didnt it not not up to anyone on here to pass judgment because im pretty sure most of yall have something way worst in ur closets to be ashamed of. This man died! and the only thing ppl have to talk about is him having a virus and being a "faggot" (cant believe we still use that word). ur all a mess. u all need t eduacte urselves and get it to-damn-gether. r communities give props to dead beat dads and guys who hit women or ppl who sleep around or woman shaking there body parts on tv influencing ur young children minds and when it comes time to so respect for someone who was out there doing something positive we all sit around a judge. smh.

Hmm his death sounds similiar

Hmm his death sounds similiar to Eazy E 's death. I work in the medical field and staph infections are serious but only if left untreated for months, and if one's immune is already compromised. More over, How could such a fab looking fellow function with sores which staph causes for a long period of time? PPl really need a reality check. Speaking the truth isnt judging. PPl that have AIDS don't die from AIDS, they die due to complications from the virus. Having anal sex increases the chances for men and women to come into contact with the virus if sexing someone with the virus. PPl need to practice safe sex and know your status. If this guy had Aids or HIV I am sure he would not have came out and tell ppl.All those other young guys he was sleeping with I hope they go get tested.

Amen to you. Atlanta, GA is

Amen to you. Atlanta, GA is one of the WORST most criminal places with unspeakable RACISM and you are correct, people are judging this man's sexuality and whatever took his life in his prime. It is SAD all around. The United States is the FRAGMENTED society. The MAIN point is... what you wrote will go over most people's head because our culture the United States is RIDDIDLED with IGNORANT bastards Posting on here and commenting about someone who they don't even know. The poor DISGRACEFUL and PATHETIC American society. We are the dumbest so call 1st World country in the World; what for a paradox is that? Duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh 'Bunch ah dumb ass niggahs' judging folks... and ones who are dead too; they should be SPAT on for their empty consciousness and calling themselves Christians. Uhk!

SMH @ ALLLLL the people

SMH @ ALLLLL the people talking about "He died of AIDS"..and "He's a faggot"..& Blah..blah..blah..yalls asses dont needa be worrying about "him dying of aids"..but instead. needa be going to get tested! I bet half of you probably "do" have AIDS, but don't even know it yet! Not ALL gay people have AIDS! Smh..Me personally, i'm NOT gay, but i'm just not illiterate like some of you retarted fucks out there. Get educated about STDS & the Virus's! You sound stupid! I, Myself, didn't know Dariel...personally, but I do know that he was currrently dating my brother "Demond Culberson!"..look it up on Facebook if you don't believe me! Anywho, it's sad that he died so soon... him and my brother were supposed to get married, and for him to be gone now...is just overwhelming. Demond is hurting rite now..and it hurts me to know that I cant do anything really to take the pain away, but just to pray for him. :( R.I.P Dariel.. && to Demond.. "I love you big bro!".. your family back in Oklahoma loves you. Keep your head up! Don't let this discourage you..let this be a push of greatness, and carry on his legacy! I love you...

no...you the one that sound

no...you the one that sound stupid...because if you read and understood your Bible...you would know that when you die...there is no resting in peace...you are not sleeping whether you enter into the gates of heaven or hell...secondly; if God put gay people in the wrong body...why didn't he also put another place to stick their dicks in instead of a hole that already had a purpose. Every member of the body had a purpose..but don't mind us...that is why God left all gays to defend for themselves on their own because he was tired of that mess...Sodom and Gomorrah ain't nothing comared to what is to come...i sin myself and i do it because i want to not because God supposedly made a mistake..cut your crap and start praying for change because your life will be one tormoil after tormoil circle of hell if you continue the path..

Staph infection becos his immune system was compromised due to aids,,and reality says your brother,and anybody else that had a sexual relationship with this young man,should be concerned instead of you defending someone u don't know Andrea,,you should encourage your brother to get tested,and to get out of that gay lifestyle

Some of you are very disrespectful and I pray that God have mercy on you, and he did not die from AIDS I wish people would educate themselves on the HIV/AIDS as well as other STDs because some of the comments are so ignorant.

It doesn't matter what he

It doesn't matter what he died of.. The fact is that he died, so show some respect and let him rest in peace..Its not up to us to judge him or his soul, because the fact is nobody is perfect! So all you negative people go find something else to do because you're despicable..That was someone's son, brother, cousin, friend..So what if he was gay, he was still human, and I am sad that he's gone:(

your ignorant and God Bless

your ignorant and God Bless you! I was once told when people are anti-anti gay to the pt they say rude things they are gay their self god doesn't like ugly and you arent a christian, I hope you dont call yourself one. What he died of is none of our concern. The only thin you should be saying is rest in peace and my condolences to his family . IDK what this world is coming to you need to get your self right before you comment on anything else. As I said "God Bless"!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all...non gays

First of all...non gays aren't even supposed to be communicating with gays..in the old testament..they were stoned to death...so what are you talking about. Just because you are gay doesn't make it right...just because i use profanity and fornicate doesn't make it right..but at the same time im not defending my sins...that is the difference between a Christian and a mess...own up to your sins and repent and if it is hard...ask God to remove it from you...I smoked cigarettes for 15 years and i quit cold turkey after trying several times...but i did'nt do it until i meant it and i involved God in helping me quit.

That is true you have to have the desire to give up a wayward lifestyle. God will not suddenly take away those sins----you have to put work in it. Thanks for the comment.

All Im reading is HIV and

All Im reading is HIV and Aids. Grow the fuk up. You people act like your day not coming. A few young people have died I know and they were young...heart attacks. I know someone who had cancer and lord if you never witnessed it, you dont want to. Furthermore my father was straight, found out after becoming ill that he had HIV but the doctor told him its not the HIV its something else. Needless to say he died from cancer. His immune system was not even affected by HIV and wasnt on meds. He was a smoker and died from lung cancer. So no matter how you go, your going. Whether young or old its when God wants you and as far as family needing donations...you think they knew, do you think Dariel thought his life would end so soon noooo. So Im sure they are working it out. God bless his soul and I hope nobody talks bad about you when its your turn.

You don't have to be gay to have AIDs, there go you or I except for the grace of God. Even if it might have been AIDs so what, as a people we need to wise up and deal with the issues that plague us instead of making them a bad word. How else do we expect to be healed.

His hair & face was 2

His hair & face was 2 beautiful 2 have full blown aids. That disease tears a persons body up. It makes their hair fall out, they get darker towards the end as well. I don't think that was it.

lol. you sound crazy. do you

lol. you sound crazy. do you remember a man named EAZY-E!!! Was his body torn up when he died? had his hair fallen out? was he darker? he went into the hospital with lung problems. found out he had aids, and died 3 weeks later! not diagnosed with HIV, he was diagnosed with AIIIIIIDDDDDDSSSSS!!!!!! im sure you walk by a person living with aids everyday and dont even know because you cant LOOK AT A PERSON AND TELL THEY HAVE IT!

Rest in peace and may the

Rest in peace and may the Lord bless his soul. Prayers and thought to his family and friends. I am truly surprised at all the assuming comments about this young mans life. He was only 29 with much more to give, he died too soon and most question donating for her burial or how he died. Aids has no boundaries, it is no longer a leading cause of death in the gay community. Why would anyone have anything negative to say about him and "assume" his cause of death? He came across as a fun loving person. Let's not continue to be petty with such harsh statements. I am sure his family is reading comments about him. If you don't have anything nice to say then miss the comment section for this blog.

wow. he was beautiful. may

wow. he was beautiful. may he rest in peace. the details of the hows and the whys dont even really matter. what matters is that he is at rest. my uncle (who was not gay) went to the hospital just for a checkup and caught a staph infection that killed him within 24 hours. it happens and it happens QUICKLY.

Most financial advisors will

Most financial advisors will advise against purchasing life insurance until you have dependents. Most of the time it is an unnecessary expense. It's more important to build your savings as a young person. You may have money set aside in savings for something like this, but life insurance isn't the most important thing. Besides IF Dariel had a pre-existing condition, it might have made it practically impossible to get life insurance any way.

Everyone is going backa and

Everyone is going backa and forth abouth the aids issue unless you are trying to find out if he was infected cause you or someone you know may have slept with him then it is erellevent. Yet we all need to be educated on where or how infections and disease are transmitted and cured. Not knowing to be able to stop the spread and find a cure is where the ignorance comes in to play. We also needs to remeber that only GOD judge can judge us all. So instead of judging and commenting on his life style lets pray that he has completely for filled purpose and pleased God to the best of his ability and may he rest in peace. Sn: Know for education purpose only: those who are most at risk for MRSA infections are babies whose immune systems aren’t fully developed yet, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems, such as HIV/AIDS patients. With the advance of anti-viral medications over the last 15 years, HIV/AIDS is no longer considered the early death sentence that it once was. But unfortunately, due to the increase in MRSA cases, the tide is turning in the black gay community. For black people living with HIV today, MRSA/staph will soon be the #1 killer.
