Kellon Hill's family home in Southampton is full of photographs: portraits of sons and daughters graduating from school and college; pictures of a close-knit family having fun on vacation.
But now this proud, ambitious and religious family has been shattered by the murder of Kellon, 18, the baby of the group.
Below, Kellon's mother, father, and four siblings take turns to pay tribute to the boy who has been violently snatched from their lives.



I'll never see him smile again


Kellon's father, Daniel, 57, who is an occupational therapist and part-time music teacher, said: "Kellon had a pretty good voice, he could draw, play the piano pretty well and he was better than all of us at chess. I knew what he was capable of. He was so determined and competitive: he could have conquered the world.
"I am so proud of all my children, and he threatened to outdo them all. I had seen him grow so big, and I was looking forward to seeing how much more he could grow and what he could become.
"He was my baby, just my little baby, and now I'll never see him smile again. I know, at least, that my son left this earth with a smile on his face.
"I know that God reached down and rescued him from the pain and the danger that surrounded him. He was innocent.
"He just went to get what was his, and they killed him, they murdered him. They murdered my baby. It isn't fair. And they will probably get away with it. People get away with murder in Bermuda. Nobody talks, and people get away with it, and so they just continue to do it."


He was always looking for fun


Kellon's mother, Gail, 57, a teacher at Somerset Primary School, said: "My youngest child was a strong-willed boy, determined, and so talented.
"He wanted to be an architect because of his talent for drawing. I picture him wandering around, as a child, with his little Bible in his hands. He read it through four times.
"He was always happy and always having fun. He was such a caring and innocent child. He used to love board games. He used to write stories, draw pictures to go with them, and print it all out on the computer to make into little books.
"He was always looking for clean, innocent fun. But there are others in this world who have their fun by destroying the lives of others. My heart goes out to them, too.
"Kellon was about to leave for college in America. He was looking forward to going on to that next stage in his life, and we were all looking forward to watching where that would take him. I will miss my son, but I know he is in good hands."


I knew how talented he was


Kyron's eldest brother Kyron Hill, 24, a price-risk analyst who graduated from Tampa University in Florida, said: "He looked up to his two older brothers. I gave him advice on females, school, his future, everything, and I always got the idea he was taking it in.
"I knew how talented he was and I wanted him to be the best he could; I wanted him to be better than me.
"The only thing I didn't know about were his friends: the people he hung around with, the people he was exposed to. I was away at school for six years so I didn't know his friends. Maybe there were people I should have said: 'watch out for them. Stay away from him.'
"I didn't get to spend so much time with Kellon during his life, because I was always at school. But I loved him to death. I was his biggest fan."


Kellon was our bundle of joy


Kudre, 23, the middle brother of the family, who is due to go to university in Miami to study business administration, remembers his brother as a fun-loving prankster.
He said: "We were at a family barbeque - everyone was dressed up nice. I walked passed him twice, and I saw there was this grin on his face. I thought: 'what are you grinning about?' But I'm not thinking nothing - it's a family affair. But he's been planning this all day. The minute my hands are full - I'm walking passed with a plate in both hands - he stands up and pushes me in the pool. In all my clothes, in front of all those people. I'd pushed him in the pool on numerous occasions. But he got the last laugh. Kellon was king of the pool.
"He was the last one to come into the family. He was everyone's bundle of joy. I watched him grow up; watched him become bigger than me. But he will always be my little bro. I miss my little bro - my big little bro."


He had a very calm nature


Kina, 30, a doctor and the eldest child of the family, said: "Kellon was always quiet, grew up quite reserved. He had a very calm nature. He had a soft heart, and sensitive feelings.
"He grew to become the biggest of us, and he started to come into himself. He grew up in a Christian home, surrounded by a family who loved and supported him.
"I believe there are families that are broken in Bermuda, and that is the crux of the problem. In Bermuda we are considered to be so affluent, but there are families that cannot pay the bills. So there are kids fighting other kids, killing other kids; the whole community is just crying, crying with pain.
"As a community, as a group, as a government, what are we going to do to fix this? Most likely we will just wait for the next stabbing, the next family in pain, and do nothing."


We always used to play together

Youngest daughter Keira, 22, is due to leave for Howard University, where she will study dentistry.
She said: "Kellon and I were the youngest, so we were always playing together. We made tree houses up at Lighthouse Hill. We took games up there and set up a little camp.
"My little brother loved games: monopoly, chess. He was always, always looking to have fun. I loved my little brother so much. He was my friend.
"When he grew up he wanted to know that he could look after himself and that he wouldn't be pushed around or taken for granted. My little brother was not a gangster. They killed him for sticking up for himself."
