“Jeremiah was a great person and he was so on point,” said Gottie. “He was helpful he would try to help anybody.”

The maintenance of the Dolph memorial at Makeda’s Cookies included Taylor maintaining a few posters, one of which he created himself. Additionally, the monument features dolphins on the pavement and plenty of flowers to honor the “100 Shots” rapper.
