"I treasure my son and my wife. They're my heart. They're all I've got, for real. My mama's gone. She's been dead for about 5 years, now. She was my heart, too. Now, I'm out here, staying out of trouble. I'm staying away from the crowd. I'm 53 years old, so I don't have time for the ignorance. I just go to work and then I go back home. That's it. James knows me. I don't really hang in the streets. I wish it more things that people could do to keep them out of the streets. I think that if there were more stuff that kids could do, it would keep them out of trouble. That's why I think that Darrell Griffith doing what he did for the West End School, was one of the best things for the West End. He's a good guy, man. I played ball with him." - Anthony & James, Russell
