"We thought of you with love today,
but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
we often speak your name.
All we have are memories,
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
with which we will never part.
God has you in His keeping,
we have you in our hearts.

Have a heavenly HAPPY BIRTHDAY Otis"

"To my beloved brother. It's been a little over 2 months since God called you home. Every time I look at any of your pictures, theres always an expression associated with it; sadness and joy. Sadness because you're gone from us. Joy because your presence always brought joy even when things were dim, you'd always a way of brightening up the day!"

"What's up Unc, There's so much going on right now since u've been gone. For 1, the Church needs a wake up call. It feels so uncomfortable now. Can u do me a solid?  ;-) Ask God to touch the hearts of the members...We need it more than ever.
By the way, I hear that Whitney has joined the choir. GIVE GOD THE GLORY AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE VICTORY. 143UO"

"My dear brother Otis, it's being about 1 month since the Lord called you home and you had to leave us. It still hurt a lot. On Friday evenings, I think of you preparing your supplies and making BBQ, gettin' your food truck ready for the week-end. The family as a whole is having a tough time but you are exactly where you are suppose to be; in the arms of our Ever Loving Father. Love you!"

"Uncle Otis, Thank you for being the pillar of our family. For planting seeds of wisdom and exhibiting what a true servant of Christ looks like. Thank you for teaching us that true praise is not contingent on our external circumstances. Even though you have gone on to be with The Lord, your role in our family, community and church will have an eternal impact. I love you and will miss you."

But I find comfort in knowing that you suffer no more and you are resting safely in your Father's loving arms. Rest in Christ!!!  And when you're all rested up, GET YOUR PRAISE ON!! Love your God-Daughter and great niece Niya."
