Guestbook

I have so many wonderful memories of us growing up together and you were so much more than a friend, you are family a brother I never had. I just sit and think about you and my mom and dad how I hope yall are all together in heaven celebrating with each other. I miss you all so much and cant believe yall are gone. Cant believe we have lost so many in the last few years and I promise I will be right by your mama always as she is like a mama to me. I promise we will do everything to find out what happened to you and who all was behind it until the end. Your mama is missing you so much I just wish you could come to us and tell us what we need to know to solve this. May you ride the streets of gold and keep shining down on us and give my family a big hug and kiss from me. Always will be remembered and loved. See ya one day brother until then RIP
