"They left out that "Buck Red" whom is my grandfather, also had a great granddaughter Jaymee Renaye Downey that he left behind which will be 2 on December of 2012. But I am sure no one even knew about her or his other grand children that they do not "claim" anymore being that my beautiful daughter became part of their family.
RIP Papa"
