Diji-Amir Demetri Veiga
December 27, 2000 ~ September 9, 2023 (age 22) 22 Years Old
Diji-Amir Demetri Veiga, affectionately referred to as Diji or simply D by all who had the privilege of knowing and loving him, came into this world on December 27, 2000, in Boston, Massachusetts, to parents Adelsa Veiga and Paul Booker. Sadly, on September 9th, 2023, he was suddenly taken from us.
Diji was a proud graduate of McKinley High School of Boston where he was a part of the Scholars Brigade. From a very young age, Diji displayed an unyielding sense of independence, once declaring as a child, "I can hold my own hands." This declaration encapsulated his unwavering determination throughout his life. To truly grasp his essence as an individual, one needed to understand the significance of his name: Farmer Prince. This duality represented the unique and special qualities that could only define him. He was a man who both served and deserved service.
Diji was a self-driven young man who held an immeasurable affection for his family. Those who were fortunate enough to know him can attest to the radiant positivity he brought into any room he entered. His smile had a genuinely contagious effect, and his remarkable ability to make people laugh, when they didn't even think they could smile, was a testament to his exceptional character.
Diji was a staunch supporter of his family and friend's endeavors, showing unwavering love and commitment. His wholehearted affection for people was evident to all who crossed his path, and he was a natural caregiver. He was more than a big brother or big cousin, he filled bigger shoes than his feet were made to fill, comfortably. He was a son, a nephew, a dad, a best friend, a
confidant, a protector... He took whatever role was required of him without hesitation. He was a vocal advocate for both himself and those who needed his voice.
Diji's compassion extended to all living creatures. Like his mother, he took in and cared for animals whenever necessary. He lived for his family and made certain that each of us knew we were loved and cared for. Diji's absence will be profoundly felt by everyone who had the privilege of knowing and loving him.
He is now reunited with his two younger brothers, Elijah Gilson Peters and Justice King Veiga, in the realm beyond. Diji leaves behind his surviving siblings: Charles "Chu-Chu" Walker Jr., Aviana Booker, Tatiana Zepeda, Demetrius Thomas, and Samaria Thomas. Additionally, he was deeply cherished by his grandparents, as well as a wide array of aunts, uncles, and cousins who he regarded as more than just family, treating them as cherished siblings. Although Diji may no longer be with us, his memory will live on FOREVER. He will be sorely missed. Until we meet again.
