The other day, your 4th grandchild, Bahiyah, told me she was sad. And I asked why. It was because someone had made a comment about someone passing and no longer being here. She said it made her think about you and it made her sad because you aren’t here. This little sweet girl who has never met you, never heard your voice, never seen you face to face, never felt your love, misses you. Her feelings astonished me and saddened me, to be reminded again that there will always be a hole in the place that was yours in my children’s life. But though most of them have never met you, they’re still a part of keeping your memory alive. They ask about you. I tell them about you....They miss you as though they’ve known you. They love you as though you have been here to cherish them their whole lives. They remember you through me. There’s so much of you in me. The more I learn about myself, the more I understand you. The more I understand you, the more I want to know you and the more I want to ask you. There’s so many things I want to ask that I didn’t even know to ask 10 years ago. 10 years ... only today did I realize how long it has been. I’m starting a new decade of life without you.... without you...that thought is as unreal today as it was the day we lost you. We all miss you mom and we love you. I feel so blessed to have known you; to be chosen to be your daughter. I’m blessed to have been raised by you and loved by you. I’m blessed to be one who gets to remember you - even though that means being one who can only ever miss you from now on. I will take that, because it means, for a moment in time, I got to have you mom. Happy birthday. We love you always.

This june marks 10 years since you have passed. So much has changed in that time frame. What hasn't changed is that you are dearly missed and forever memorialized in our hearts. Happy birthday mom.

I can't believe is 8 years already. I wish you were here to take me places and show me around Flint. You are my angel sent from above. You are always missed. I waiting patiently for the day when our Lord Jesus will come back and we can meet again. Until the resurrection morning rest in peace.

Wow today makes 5 year since you passed away. It seemed like the pain would never go away. In time the pain has subsided, but you are never too far from my mind, especially when I look at my niece. She looks just like a spitting baby image of you. I miss so much. Forever and always loved and missed.

Today on your birthday
And every other day
The memory of you
Still takes my breath away.

For moments in time
That continue to repeat
I'll be lost in longing
To have you in this life with me.

To hear you
To see you
To know you
To learn you
Laugh with you
Cry with you
Embrace and admire you.

But as long as I live
You'll live on in me.
I'll love you forever
And forever you'll be.

Happy Birthday Mom

Today marks year 3. People say it gets easier with time. It seems like the wound always run deep but the pain has lessened over the years, but the pain will always be there.Every year that passes by, I miss you more and more.
Posted by Radeyah Muhammad on June 5, 2013
Part of me wishes life would stand still so I wouldn't constantly be reminded that I'm living without you. But you always encouraged us to live life to the fullest and that means moving on. Still every day that I'm living and laughing, learning and loving, it's just not the same without you here to share things with. Love you and miss you always.

I know I never got a chance to meet you but being married to your son I guess I got a little part of you too I find myself looking at your pictures around the house and wonder how things would've gone if I met you thank you for being a great mom and raising your children the way you did they are both truly a gift happy birthday Debra and I know you are missed Dearly god bless

Today make birthday number 3. People say in time it will get better. To an extent I do believe that is true. On the other hand it seems like the pain isn't so severe but it is still there stabbing at me every day. It's just that some days are worse than others. I pray every day and I thank god for the time that we had with you. I love you and I miss you.

The BIG Lost

Shared by Emmanuel Kwasi on June 11, 2010

What a friend I've lost. It comes as a big blow when the news was first brought to my attention on June 5. I paused for a while and casted my mind far back into the past when I met Debra at the University of Michigan-Flint Pavilion. I had freshly entered United State and to be more specific UofM-Flint when I met Debra at the Pavilion. She quickly came to talk to me after she realized how foriegn I was. She offered me a ride just to show me around Flint. from that moment I saw how beautiful life could be when you have a friend like Debra.

Debrah will visit me time to time, just to make sure I was okay. We will talk on the phone almost all the time. She showed me how to live in United State and in Flint. She made sure I found my church home (Seventh-Day Adventist). She finally did and Fairhaven S.D.A church became my church family where I met my wife. 

Debra and I spent a lot of time together at the park, whiting auditorium, stepping stone falls, did a lot of shopping, played games and many many more. Debrah will buy me food even if I don't ask for it. Debrah was very dear to my heart and she still is. You will forever be remembered. I know one day I will meet you again. May your soul Rest in Perfect Peace.
