Dear Mom,
    I love you.  There is so many things I wish I could say to you right now, but that is the most important.  I want to thank you for being who you are and teaching me how to be a good mother.  You were so strong, smart, beautiful, and loving.  You made me.  Everything I am , I am because I watched you and learned from you.  You made me be strong and independant.  For that I thank you.  There will not be a day that goes by that I don’t think about you!  I promise I will tell Malik, Elijah, Justice and Daveah what a beautiful heart you had.  I will tell Malik that you were there to cut his cord when he was born, and let them know that you are happy in Heaven and watching them everyday so they better be good, and I won’t let Thomas forget that everything was T-o-m, T-o-m ! I will raise them like you raised Me, Bobby, Jason, Amber, Tiffany and Hope!  To always be there for each other and Always tell each other I love you!  You are the best Mom in the world and I will cherish every memory of you.  It’s so hard to say good bye mom.  I don’t want to!  “I love you all the way up that sky”.
                                                  With All My Heart,
                                                     Your Daughter,

    Dear Bev,why did you have to die? You were the pretty one out of the bunch. I did not get to see you as often as I iked, but you were thought of often. Why do young people die, I have seen it all and done it all, I would give up my life for you. You have twelve little ones that will be looking for you. Be waiting for me,we will all be with you someday.
