Brownie,
Don’t have to tell you that today is our Princess Grace’s birthday. It has truly been an event to remember. My mom and sisters, you know Dreka and Corky went all out. Just awesome! Our DPD family is exceptional. The driveby birthday surprise was a sight to see. Our law enforcement community and the fire department were just simply astonishing. I know you saw it all from right there next to your baby. Love you Brownie. Kennedy, Gabby, Ebony, and the kids all made it a special day. We have awesome family and friends. Love you bunches.

I'm missing my friend like crazy. I find myself wanting to call her often. But since I can't I talk to her and reminded m reminisce on our conversations we had. I know our angel is watching over us and find some comfort in knowing she's not in any more pain. I look at our pictures from all our travels all the time. I love you Kesh.

Another one of my sleepless night up thinking about you daughter, love you

Brownie,
Happy Mother’s Day to you sweetheart. Grace told me that she’s going to be “super old” when she turns five years old. Your kid indeed. Don’t know how to feel about this day. I have been thinking about it for about a week now, trying to figure out what to say to Grace. We got you a card, opened it and recorded our Mother’s Day message to you. We looked at pictures, had one of you kid’s gourmet breakfast (well, she ate), and then she wanted popcorn at 11:00 in the morning; I figured you would approve. Lol. We miss you and love you so much. Listening to William McDowell and doing laundry and watching Grace in all her splendor, serve as a pleasant sweet image and memory of you. Checked on mom and my sisters; we are all trying to be strong, but how different this day is. Loving you mucho.

I watched you proudly as you grow into such a lovely young lady , blossomed into a simply Gorgeous woman.. Every time i was out am see a police officer i would always say dont you known my niece shawna .. She a police, and 9 times out of 10 they knew you. You has Always been the apple of my eye.. I was sitting here thinking of some things i didn't get a chance to tell you, so from time to time while you are walking around Heaven you might hear me telling you what going on. . Kei you left me so many Great Memories that I will cherish. I am gonna miss hearing you say to me when I show up at your moms house! Hi Lazet, what you been doing, where your kids at, where is uncle Mike, Then you say you better go fix you a plate.

Good afternoon Kei...It’s nothing that can feel this empty space in my heart, I been trying to do what I can to make you proud. I been doing whatever I can for my Gracie. I think I might be more a pushover than Eric now lol.. The other day she cried because she didn’t want me to wash her hair and guess what I didn’t wash her hair, I just fixed it up nicely. Eric came to pick her like, wait Grace running the show and we just laughed. Remember I use to say she don’t want to come with me because I’m not the fun auntie and you said well
You better become a fun auntie. I’m a fun auntie now and she loves coming with me and she just lay under me all day.. I miss you so much. Some days are better than others but no day is the best without you, but I just keep praying to God that I gain the strength to accept you being gone. I cant wait til we meet again even if it’s for you to fuss at me.I be wanting to call and ask you should I do this, or how you think I should do that?? Your advice always counted even if it felt like i was rebellious and didn’t listen. I always listened to you. Just keep watching over me because I need you. I tell you one thing, I’m sucka free.. I love you so much..Corky

I made Lasagna the other day and I cried while I was making it. I thought of you asking me what cheese goes on top every time you would make it. I lost my baby Palm On March 15th. I believe he’s in heaven getting on your nerves! I know how much you loved all the sounds he would make when we would try to have a phone conversation. Lol
I love you and miss you dearly!

Brownie,
Your kid used the term “avatar” today as she was exploring her character on ABC Mouse. She is so smart Keisha. We miss you every day. She threatens to tell you everything when I try to get her to follow directions. In the end, you know, she wins. She ask about you every day and I tell her that you are with her always. Sometimes she goes over to the mantle just to look at your pictures. What a sight to see. I wonder sometimes what is she thinking. I try not to interrupt her—her quite time. She’s happy. Don’t worry about us. I’ll take good care of our little Grace. Loving you mucho.
Posted by Kennedy Buttts on April 17, 2020
Auntie Keisha, today is April,17,2020 today I was cleaning my room and I was wiping down my mirror and I didn’t use paper towel and it just made me remember when you always told me is that a smart thing to do. I miss you so much auntie Keisha I miss your pinches I miss your touch,smile ,and your voice, niece Kennedy.

Woke up early not sure of how and why I got here! But Littlebit(CPl. Doeh) I needed you to know July 6. 1998 our path crossed. Never knew a small woman with such a big heart. I didnt think we jellied together at first but as the Police Academy move on into 6 months, I realizes you and I had some character alike. We both were bosses, strong and determined. I was older and you were younger. I remember our graduation in December, 1998 you were excited to be going to Second Precinct.
From there I remember my incident with MacKenzie High School security guard regarding my daughter. She called the School Officers and who did I see? Little Bit (Brown) and her partner. You and I both agreed to the security being out of order but you handle it professional and quick.
After your knight and shining Star had arrived, (Doeh) then baby Grace it was joy for me to see that SMILE.
I remember when you came to the Northwestern District and we took care of you. I always knew you was a special person. At our 20 year gathering we truly had a great time. No one knew 1 year and couple months you would exit this life. You fought a good fight. Didnt want to leave Gracie but God saw it all, he felt your pain.
During your battle I would inbox you or you called to check out your time.
The last message I have is asking if I could come see you?
My heart hurt because our class wasnt able to show our respect or love for you!
Fly high little bit(Cpl. Doeh), will see you again !❤
Love you little sister in blue!

Posted by Cassandra Myers on March 30, 2020
Words can not express the sorrow I have for your family right now. You are a strong courageous beautiful person. Small in stature but great large in love. I only knew you a short time but your impact was still great. 

I will continue to pray for Eric, Grace and your family through this time. I know they know how wonderful you are but I just want Grace especially to know how far her mother's impact reaches. Will miss you.
Posted by LaShawna Simpson on March 29, 2020

Shawana,
This is so hard.
Thank you for all the laughs and memories.
Thank you for being a wonderful example of faith in God and strength. I’m thankful that through you and Eric, God showed me how beautiful marriage can and should be. Thank you for sharing this journey of motherhood with me.
I know that we will meet again. I take comfort in knowing that you are no longer in pain.
I love you, sweet friend.

I am truly sorry for your loss. I am keeping you and your family in my prayer. May your wife rest in peace. May you find comfort and strength through this difficult time.
Posted by Shawn Belk on March 26, 2020
I will never forget you, Shawana Doeh. You will forever be in my heart. You were such a happy-go-lucky, upbeat spirit who was always brutally honest. If anyone asked for the truth, you were never afraid to tell it. LOL. I truly enjoyed knowing you. Eric (your Noah), Grace and your entire family have my deepest and sincerest condolences. They are in my most fervent prayers as they adjust to life without your physical presence. May God bless us and keep us all.

her Life
My wife was the best part of me. She made me a better person and always had my back. I married up in so many ways. It's amazing how ten years today seem all so short. I see so much of my Brownie in our Grace; her strength, her kindness, her wisdom and laughter. My heart is heavy, but I am blessed. Blessed to have found someone to love me like she did. This was supposed to be a seventy-five year contract. But I will take the ten, knowing that my love for you is everlasting. I will miss you every day. You will never be forgotten because your memories will live on through Grace, Gabby, Kennedy, Greg, and all of us who weep today. 
I love you beyond measure.
