To Tracis mom,
I remember you worked at palm bay high in the kitchen. You were a nice lady. You encouraged me to do good. You were a fighter with what you believed as a woman. I guess you were right at palm bay high and told me to always protect Traci. I let her get bitter and lost the true connection I had with u and her father and her. But wont ever forget your attitude.. rip..

Heidi I’m surely going to miss you, our talks on messenger and Facebook. I’m so happy we stayed close and kept in contact. Even when you got so sick, you always was concerned about me. Your love was so great. You were so strong and you stayed happy through it all. I’m sorry I won’t be able to make your celebration of life as I just got out of the hospital.
To the family: Traci and Chris I keep you and all your family in my prayers. My heart goes out to you all. Dorothy I send my condolences and a big hug as well. You all have gone through so much. God be with you all and help you at this time.

Dear Kim, Mackenzie and family,
I did not meet your sister/aunt, but I feel as though I know her from the posts you shared. My wish is when you think of her to remember all the happy times you shared.
Love and strength to all,
