To My Family

I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My Life's been full, I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

Dear Mama

Little Did We Know That Morning of September 4th God Was Going To Call Your Name, In Life We Loved You Dearly In Death We Do The Same, It Broke Our Hearts To Lose You But You Did Not Go Alone, For Part Of Us Went With You The Day God Called You Home, You Left Us Peaceful Memories Your Love Is Still Our Guide, And Though We Cannot See You, You Are Always By Our Side, Our Family Chain Is Broken And Nothing Seems The Same, But As God Calls Us One By One, The Chain Will Link Again

We love and miss you mama, Isiah, Lucy, Tony, Keith, Bobby, Brandon, Kendra, TJ, Martavious, Kryssy, Shenitta, Momo, Kiki, Garyon, Kira.
