Mom Doris, you knew we loved you as our own. We did what we could for you through the past years; you will remain a very present memory in my life until such time God calls me on home to be with Him. Dorothy, Sam, Sonya, LaQuita and Joe. Thank you God for allowing us to be a part of DC's life!

To my beautiful granny. You have blessed my life more than you'll ever know. I take away so much knowledge and wisdom from our talks and time together. I will miss you and so will Chi Chi. Enjoy your final resting place. I love you, Quita
