It is with sadness I add this young man, Quadrevion Henning, aged 12 and his friend, 11 year old Purvis Virginia Parker.

Although I did not know either young man or their families, I knew of them and prayed for their safe return after hearing they were missing from a park.

Purvis Virginia Parker, 11, and Quadrevion Henning, 12, were last seen on the afternoon of March 19 when they asked Quadrevion's grandfather if they could play basketball at the nearby park.

After the boys' disappearance, police and volunteers searched the neighborhood, posted leaflets around the city and made repeated appeals for information anyone might have.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and America's Most Wanted also posted pictures of the boys on their Web sites.

The boys' families said the two had no history of running away and had good school attendance records, and police fielded hundreds of calls on a tip line offering possible leads.

Saturday, [April 15th], their bodies had been recovered from a lagoon near where they disappeared, [March 19th].
Police Chief Nan Hegerty speculated Purvis, who could not swim, fell in first, and Quadrevion, who was a strong swimmer, tried to save him.
"There was no evidence of any injury or any foul play," said Milwaukee County medical examiner Jeffrey Jentzen.
Jentzen said the children could have lost consciousness immediately in the cold water.

"That makes it kind of nice for the family that they weren't held against their own will", said Dennis Frazier, Quadrevion's uncle.

Quadrevion Henning's funeral will be April 20 at Christian Faith Fellowship church at 8605 W. Good Hope Road. Visitation is at 12 p.m. The funeral begins at 1 p.m.

Please take a moment to leave a flower for Purvis Virginia Parker also. Thank you.
