    Again I have to say good by to an amazing man. You gave of yourself for as long as I have known you. You came into my life at a young age and loved me like I was you flesh and blood , I gave you hell in the beginning but you never gave up. You took amazing care of my mom who wasn’t the best but she loved you dearly and I will always be great full to you for that. All I ever wanted was for you to be happy after she passed. I love and miss you so much and hope you are having the time of your life in heaven with my momma and all your family and friend from the legion , you are all together once again. Watch out heaven . Till we meet again RIP and I love you
