His family is shaken that Antoine is now gone. "It hurt that I have to put him in a casket, my mom and I putting him in a casket like this," said his older sister. "This is going to hurt everyone. He was always smiling. He did love school he wanted to finish. He was going to go to school today, but now he dead."
