Daddy it’s been a whole year.Wow how time flys by. It definitely isn’t the same without you. It’s been empty souls here missing where you would fill the void. But God….. I wonder what would you would’ve been up to if you was still around. Probably the usual playing and studying your numbers, listening to your spiritual programs on your phone. Talking to 1 of us on the phone or in person. Or…watching your soaps. Boy what I wouldn’t give to have those moments back. However… I can’t your with the Big Man now so we will meet and laugh again. Everyone misses you. It’s not a day that goes by that somebody is saying one of your quotes. ( Dirty Bas$#%ds) Lol. I don’t think nobody has fully processed this fully yet. I know I haven’t.Snuggle sends his love and as well as I . God Bless You Daddy Even in the Heavens. You will never be forgotten. Love, Kalaila

Dear Daddy,it's been rough living everyday in the earthly rim without you. Things aren't the same by far. We are celebrating your birthday as if because you are still here with us in Spirit. So many people who I bump into who I haven't seen in so long 1st thing they ask is....how is your dad? And when I tell them about your passing it creates a great deal of hurt amongst them. You have inspired and influenced so many. And up unto this point I never knew how many or how much. Snuggle misses your voice in phone calls and I miss your love and laughter. Your jokes and humor. We had so much fun! Miracle is taking this really hard but pursuing her dreams that much more. I look at your picture and I acknowledge you everyday! GOD has you so you are in the best of hands. I will never forget how good of a man you were. 1 of the world's best. Happy Happy Birthday Daddy. Love you forever in a day. Love Kalaila

My long time friend and neighbor, Paul I have a ton of memories of you from my childhood on Marion St. Last time I was in town we discussed a few of them and got some laughs from them. I am so glad we took pictures that last time we talked, you, my brother Terry and myself. My friend you are already missed, rest easy.✊

Dear Daddy, life seems so empty without your presence here. Just by your everyday ways of who you are and what you did. To gather wisdom, and laughter all in the same visit and conversation is priceless. The Father above has some Real Precious Cargo up there now. Oh what a ball the rest of our loved ones who has already made it will have. You are sadly missed even Snuggle feels the difference. However...you are in the Better Hands now. I Love You in this lifetime and the next one. Your daughter Kalaila.

Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.
