Just one day after the tragic death of a fourth grader, a family friend remembers him.
Thomas Suggs Junior, known as TJ, died in a car accident involving a school bus Monday morning in Lenoir County. Monday, Lee Stroud who was a grandfather like figure to TJ looked back on the boy he misses so much.
TJ's father who was driving the car remains in critical condition at Pitt County Memorial Hospital. Family friends say there will be a visitation for TJ held in Kinston on Wednesday night with funeral arrangements most likely on Thursday. Authorities say the accident is still under investigation.
