"This Flower I Give To U as a Symbol of My Thoughts Of You. I Love You Daddy. 17 years and counting. GOD saw You were Getting Tiered and that you could not go on, So He gently Whispered in Your Ear, Come on Home. But always Remember, The day GOD  Called Your Name, You did not go alone, A Sincere Part of Us went with You, The Day GOD called You Home."

"Well, It's been a minute  and I'm so ashamed to say that I have been a Heathen. But by no means did I ever forget about You. I could never forget about you. Well, I feel that you are aware that Randolph and Jennifer came home for a week, They spent that time here with me, I was so overjoyed. They spent some time away of course. But, Oooohw Daddy, Baby Brother fixed everything He could find that needed to be fixed. Ohw, I was so Blessed to have them here. And also they Pkaced a Header Stone at your Resting Site. I know You are not there, But I told him a long time ago, I really wanted to place a Marker where your Remains are laid. It's sooo beautiful and I thank GOD for them ordering it and placing it there. It's sooo beautiful, I cried just to see the Beauty of it when It arrived here at my House by Mail. Oooooohw, Daddy; I miss chatting with You. Daddy, my Body is so out of shape now, I ache almost everywhere and I'm so Overweight I just feel so awful, I am trying to get on Track tho'. I want you to Be in a god Place, I Want You to be Well and in the Best of Perfect Health. I'm sooo sorry about your Guitar. Randy has one and Cleveland had one; He's Probably Sold it by now. Cleveland is a compulsive Gambler and has nothing to show for his almost 50 years of Living. Randy has followed well in Your Footsteps;  He gas a wonderful and Loving Family, They know nothing but pure Love and Gratitude for each other. He has done well with his Life, His Finances and His Wife and Children. He still works extremely Hard, I worry about Him sooo Much and I Pray Much for Him. He's been through Sooo Much in the Military. But He is such a strong willed Man; Much like You Daddy. I am also Very, Very Proud Of Him. I Love Him and I'm So Happy that He's My Brother. Daddy, I just wanted to talk with you for a little bit before going to bed tonight. May GOD Keep Your Soul Nigh to HIM and May We All Be Ready When GOD Returns. I know that One Day, We will all meet again, On the Other Shore. Good Night My Heart String. I Love You Daddy in Life, Even More so In Death."

"Hello Sir Daddy, I know U are tickled pink hearing me address U as Sir. I've had a real pain filled day today, but ya know, I had an assurance, that sure enough, whatever the outcome, I would be alright. Well, I had a procedure done and it was not as serious as I thought it might be. Now it was quite painful, but thank GOD I'll be alright. They are always asking lots of personal questions and you know they will. Anyway, I was a trooper, at least I think I was. Well its almost Christmas and of course the office will be closed for a couple of weeks, therefore, my followup will be in three weeks. I sure pray that the meds have started working, I'm in a slew of pain and am using a cane. I just wanted to chat some, and U just so happened to be available. Thanks Daddy, U're a Rock Daddy, my Rock. I thank and I Praise GOD ALMIGHTY for giving U to me and the other 6. I love Mr. Daddy LOL. Good Night Daddy. You're My Hero and you're my Super Daddy Man.I'm leaving U a Flower if its okay with you,  shux, of course it's okay."

"Dear grandpa, it pains me that I never really got the chance to get to know you when I was older & wiser. I was around you when I was a baby but no one can really say they remember memories clearly that young. Thankfully I have pictures & I think videos to help me remember that I was there. I wish you could've met your other grandkids, Vincent, Alexzandrieea, & Charity; you would've loved them. We're all quite the crazy, cooky bunch. I know I'll see you again someday & for now you're watching over me. I pray your soul is still resting in peace now, & forever.

Love your granddaughter, Miracle"

"Daddy, My Heart is heavy. I wrote you a letter and somehow, I just losted it, well I'm thinking about you and missing your laughter and crazy sense of humor. Daddy, I wonder sometimes; Did I do all I could have or all I should have done for you?  I wonder if somewhere along the way if I disappointed you, Is there something more I could have done for you here. I am so full right now, and I can't get past the feeling of inadequacy. I've had the pleasure of caring for quite a few people some old and others, not so much. I find myself often thinking about your last days and then your final hours and then The fact that I left you and when I returned, You had taken flight. ooohhww, how I pray that your living down here was not in vain, Your awesome music, Your wonderful Teachings and your beautiful Examples of Love, Caring, Sharing and Giving; These were and are your Trademarks. You were the Eagle with the sheltering wings that kept me and the boys and the Siblings Sheltered from life's Threats, and now, You've become the Winds beneath My Wings. I pray that You know that the many Talks and the Countless Prayers you prayed for me, Not  1 Tittle of a word has fallen to the Grounds. You are the only person who has never judged me or lack faith in me, I am the most Blessed Kid in this Place, I always have been; No Other Boy or Girl had a SUPER DADDY, I know, 'cause GOD broke the Mold after HE made U. I ALWAYS KNEW i had an awesome Daddy in Life and in Death, I know I have the best Angel. I Miss Your Voice, and your laughter and your crazy loud Sense of Humor. And now, I will remember that you were with me for only a season; and in that season, You planted a Harvest of children and grandchildren and great grandchildren, (smiling) Yo accomplished much on this side. Now Daddy, The Seeds that you've sown in Tears are now coming into our own. My  Prayers will always be; That I never disappoint Your Good Name and that I never put your Teachings and Examples to Shame. I Thank GOD for choosing you to be my Daddy, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Thank You For Believing In Me and for Raising Me up so high, I could almost see Eternity. I LOVE YOU WITH EVERY FIBER OF MY WHOLE HEART AND I MISS YOU SOMETHING AWFUL."

"Well Daddy, I had my house dedication and Blessing on last evening and even today, I'm feeling overwhelmingly Blessed. I feel your presence in this place,  just as I can feel the Presence Of the LORD. If what is said about loved ones are true, then thank you for hovering over and around me. GOD is so so good to me and as you know, HE's even better than that. Thank you for teaching me how to Love the LORD  with my whole Heart and to always put GOD first."

"I thank GOD for you, and I'm so grateful for your mind and for most importantly your teaching me about JESUS' Death, Burial, and RESURECTION, and for keeping me in tuned with reality. In life you were a beautiful man and still in death I say you're still beautiful, those lessons you instilled in me during your life on this side still rings true, I'm indeed constantly learning the life lessons that you took the time to teach me. I  thank my GOD for Blessing me and my boys as well as my siblings with an AWSOME Daddy. I will always love you. I'm told that in death ya never really leave us and that y'all are always watching over us as angels do and walking silently beside us, well, if that's true, then you see how the LORD is taking care of me. I love you Daddy, may your soul be in Paradise."
