New Orleans Family Says Goodbye To Son In Unique Way

Despite being from New Orleans, Matthews was apparently a huge fan of the Boston Celtics, and his favorite things to do were to play video games and eat junk food.

Renard Matthews, who passed away at 17 years old, was a Celtics fan and enjoyed playing the National Basketball Association 2K video game.

But in the aftermath of pure tragedy, Renard's family memorialized his life at his wake by displaying him in position doing what he loved most: Playing NBA2K and cheering for his Celtics.

The Trump 25: Life on Trump's list is complex, jolting
Trump's nominee must be confirmed by the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow 51- to 49-seat majority. The White House hoped to keep the details under wraps until he rolls out his pick from the East Room.

Renard was also pictured wearing his favourite player socks in a scene made to look like a typical, family home.

The teen's mom, Temeka, told WGNO that her son was a bit of a homebody and had only recently started venturing outside before he was killed in a shooting on June 25.

With the burial scheduled for Tuesday, hopefully close friends and family members of Renard were able to visit him over the weekend, as his life was celebrated in distinct fashion. His favorite snacks, cereal, Barq's Root Beer and Doritos were placed on a side table next to him.
