Its me again Momma...guess you already know about this year's loss: Shante, Linda, Evette, Areatha, Sue, Josie Pearl and Martha's son Eugene. Our family is growing from the bottom and dropping of from the top. I am one of the elders now and that being said, I think often of the time when I will sleep with you...Say hi to Rias, Tarpon & Daddy for me. Lord I miss you all so much....

Hi Momma. It seems to me that my time here is nearing an end. I don't know how much longer I have, but certainly nothing near to what God has graciously bestowed upon me, 68 yrs. Just wanted to say thanks for your beautiful hand in blessing me with the gifts to survive and thrive life. Daphne has become so beautiful/ She is so much like you. She has a lil girl, you would love her so much. Kanaan is so intelligent.

Just left a note for Aunt Lena. Know yall had a ball when Frances & Tarpon got there. I know that Aunt Koki was happy to see Little Richard and her husband Uncle Richard and baby Denise. I miss you so much, but you left me with a special gift--a big part of yourself. Thank you beautiful.

Dearest Mom, I miss you so much. I no longer have Frances, I guess you may know. I do have little Kanaan, Daphne's daughter. She reminds me of who I believe I was as a toddler, busy. Though, nothing takes your place.

Celebrated Father's Day and Tone came in late afternoon. I said too much, but I was so full. Yard is a mess and he's either sleeping, hanging out or just nothing. Daph says he depressed. Whose fault?

Mom, Kanaan had another bug and Daphne goes flying to the ER. They diagnosed it as a viral infection; will pass in couple of days. Our people perish because they don't know. Hosea was right Mom.

Hey Mom, just a note to say that Daphne is taking Kanaan and her dad for breakfast and pictures. They looked so good. Daphne is turning into a real mom. You would be very proud.
