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.

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 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.

I will continue to pray for your family and friends as they celebrate your life today and forever. I was destined to meet you because the universe had me connected to you by Tory, Joy and your sister Q.  You always had positive words and a coy smile to me and my children whenever we would meet. Your legacy will live on. God Bless your spirit

Hi Keisha,
Thank you for being a good friend. I remember the first day we met in English class. One side of your hair was cut short, the hair was separated with different color rubber bands, and the other side was left long. You had on a white shirt, suspenders, and some black Gortex-boots with cartoon shoe-lace holders; I was thinking this kid is different. And true that, you definitely were. You always stood out from the crowd. It wasn’t always just your style and beauty that stood out; it was your spirit.
Within that English class, I used to summarize the chapters you didn’t finish reading, lol. Yet in our lives from teens to adults, you taught and helped me with much more. You taught me to live life and to stop being a “What If Girl.” At a young age, you knew the importance of living and embracing the beauty in life. That lesson was much more valuable than what was in those books that we read in high school.
So friend, I want to say thank you for the laughs, pep talks, and all the fun times. You used to say we all were going to meet up at McDonalds as old ladies enjoying our retirement to share laughs and to reminiscence. We will not meet at McDonalds, but we will meet again to laugh and reminiscence. You are truly my home girl, and I will forever miss you.
Just so you know, you have touched my life in so many ways and others as well. You are a true gem and you will be greatly missed. 
Love you, your friend Neshia.

Keish..First, I'd like to say thank you. Your friendship is priceless. We met on the school bus back in 1990 and been going strong ever since. I admire your love and admiration for your family and loved ones. You are a pillar of strength that never gave up or complained in your most challenging moments. You are an inspiration to so many. I could share countless stories of all the fun times we shared or the heart to heart conversations we had about friendship, marriage and motherhood. It's no question how much you are loved and will be missed by so many. Thank you for blessing us with a little mini Keisha. Gracie is destined for greatness and will be a force to be reckoned with. It's simply inevitable with your blood running through her veins. I look forward to celebrating your legacy with your mom, sisters, Eric, Gracie and all those that love you. You keep checking us from heaven. We all need your tell it like it is advice and guidance. Thank you for your everlasting, non-judgmental and never wavering friendship. I love you always and forever my dear friend. Until we meet again

I can picture you walking into my 4th grade classroom at Vernor Primary with your two long ponytails. You were the new girl, but we soon became best friends quickly making a little clique and creating ourselves a job at the doors to the playground. We created so many great memories together from our younger years skating to trying to be adults going to Legends to us becoming adults traveling the world and living life to the fullest. Remember when we tried out for American Idol even though you could not hold a tune; fun times. After my sister passed away, I wanted to go to Italy to help with my coping. As always, you were right there by my side; oh the fun that we had in Italy! You were also always the adventurous one; I still can't believe that we went skydiving. No matter where I moved, you always managed to come to see me. You even did things that I wanted to do like going to the Grand Canyon even though you really wanted to sleep in. I guess that was the trade-off for skydiving. I was so happy when you met Your Eric; I prayed for you a good husband because I knew that you would be a great wife and I knew that it was definitely the desire of your heart. I thank God that your desire was granted with more than you could imagine. I was even happier when you had Your Grace. She may look like Eric, but boy oh boy that is Shawana inside with all of that personality and strength. I always admired the love that you had for your Family and Eric, and when you became a Mother, that admiration surpassed all that I had ever had of you. I have always felt so honored to be Grace's Godmother and as you know, I will always be here for her. I am so grateful of our last girls' trip. No worries, in honor of you, we will continue our girls' trips. We will make it to Greece and I know that you will be there with us. It is because of you that I am a much stronger woman. Shawana, you will forever be my BFF, My Wingwoman, The Ying to My Yang and one of the Strongest Women that I know. Thank you for teaching me so many things and being the best friend that a girl could ever ask for. Thank you for making such a positive impact on so many people. In the last few days, one of the most common words that I have read to describe you is authentic/genuine. I think that is part of what makes You such a Gem. I know that you are in a better place with no pain, but it is still so hard letting go. You would always say, "I Love Love." Well, Shawana"I Love You." As in our favorite movie, "The Notebook," "I'll be seeing you." - Signed, your BFF

Shawana, I will miss you deeply. I appreciate the wisdom and the real talks we shared. You always kept it real and I appreciate that so much.

I want you to know that you are apart of some of the best memories in my life!!! I will never forget the night we stayed up laughing for NO reason, ALL night long!!! Or, the times when you swore that you didn’t want any fries, but would eat mine up. Lol!!! The countless times that we rushed to make it to the club before the free time ended! Or, when we were too broke, so we just decided to enjoy the parking lot! Lol!! Sometimes, I think of The Troublesome 2 and just laugh, laugh, laugh!!! We would always dress alike and make up dance routines!!! Those were some of the best times of my life!!! I didn’t know back then, that we were actually living our BEST lives!!! I just want you to know that I love you! Thank you for being apart of my life!!! Knowing you and your influence always pushed me to do better, want more, and expect the best in all aspects of life! I will eternally be grateful for the connection that our lives made together!!! RIH
Your Friend,
❤️Tory

Keisha, I can’t thank you enough for being a living example of how we should always treat others and our loved ones. You showed me what life is really about. I’m going to miss texting you late at night and talking about how much of a diva Grace is. I love you and miss you already.

My Loving sister! You are not in pain any more. I have to admit I was upset and mad no where to turn. I remember protecting you and Cleo from all the bully’s in our old neighborhood and when you told us you was diagnosed with cancer I could not do anything but turn to GOD. You fought a good fight and you said you would. Just little short woman with so much strength, so that did not surprise me at all. Every one says their is no one perfect on this Earth. Welp let me say this you was perfect in my eyes. I will miss our talks, you laughing at me and Cleo. Early 80’s over 40 years. I know Gracie will be ok. I also know we have gained a powerful Angel. You not suffering no more. Your nieces and nephews will truly miss the pop up calls, you checking on them from time to time. I love you and I will see you on the other side. This will hurt for a while and I have to be a little selfish and can not pretend that this don’t hurt because it do. We will always keep you alive because you made your mark on earth. One day I will stop crying but you and our memories will always be here. You told me one day sit back and think about everything you been through and where you are now. Acknowledge your blessings and I did that. I started moving feeling better and doing better! I’m truly blessed to have you in my life and your family. I pray for them every day to give them the strength they need to get through this as well as your friends. You are loved by many. I remember you calling me and Cleo talking girl they thought I was Alyia. Me and Cleo like who and we all started laughing. I remember when the girls next your grandma house came out and picked a fight with you and Cleo but little did they know you had another family across the street I can tell stories from early 80’s to now. I know we are not blood but we could never tell because you got the same treatment we did. Sisters irritating sisters. I do know this a lot people do not know the other side of you and that made it easier for all of us. Daddy always love to see you coming in your police uniform. Daddy always saying here come the little police officer, cracking jokes and we laughing. I appreciate you more than you know. As you know our family have been through a lot but this cuts deep but you also taught me a lot and I will use that and keep you close to my heart. I love you sister and to me you won the fight. I will see you and talk to you later. RIH My Sister❤️❤️

Keisha I know you are up there spending time with your dear grandmother! I just don't have the words right now. I know you always called me a cry baby. I wish I knew how to sing because my song to you that keeps playing in my head is Smokey Robinson singing "I'm going to miss you my friend". I Love you!!!!
