Say a word of prayer for the family when your heart is moved to do so. Open up your heart to the feelings of others and see the difference it makes. Help the ones in pain and your heart will gain strength. Peace and love to your family. bjluv333@comcast.net

January 15, 2007
Just wanted to say goodbye to a very special,loving,exciting and fun person whom I've had the pleasure of meeting.I also want to thank him sincerly for always being so nice to myself and my three sons who love him so very much.He will be missed by so many.I'll never forget the times I've been blessed with his presence. Remembering a Legacy
January 02, 2007
Did I ever tell you how your smile brightens up my day? Your presence excites my heart with every breath I take. Each time your eyes met mine even if its just a glance you sent this sensation up my spine making my soul wanna dance. But all my vision of you and me are things you can never see. All my hopes of what could be are nothing but a dream. Though it kills me deep inside that you'll never know just what I hide. My dreams for us are something I could never let go. If I had one last try, just one last chance maybe next time you'll understand every night before I slip into bed your image is all that fills my head. I lie here thinking of the day we met along with all the memories I could never forget. Tears swell up in my eyes because you could never be mine. It hurts inside as I dream of you because your'e not there to think of me too. All my vision of you and me are things you can never see. All my hopes of what could be are nothing but a dream. Though my heart is broken I still can't let go, holding tightly to a glimmer of hope. If I had just one last try, just one last chance, maybe next time you;ll understand..........

REMEMBERING A TEN YEAR FRIENDSHIP
YOURS TRULY,

December 21, 2006
My heartfelt condolences to Proofs family and friends. I saw him performing with Eminem on the last Anger Management Tour and was absolutely blown away by them both. Proof was an amazing talent, and it was obvious how funny, kind and special he was. I am gutted that he has gone, as he was the heart of D12 to me, and he will be missed as an artist and as a person. Thank you to Eminem for helping bring him to our attention and letting us all enjoy his talent. Thank you to his family for raising a beautiful person, whose memory will live on. Thank you to his friends for having his back all those years. God bless him and all those who loved him. Let his words and his beliefs live on, and he will never be forgotten.My love to you all.xxxxxx
December 07, 2006
to the family of DeShaun, my prayers are with you.Proof will be missed and remembered

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.
July 13, 2006
MANY PEOPLE DON'T REALIZE THE EFFECT YOU HAD ON THEM TILL YOU'RE GONE. I KNOW FAMILY WAS MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU, IT HAD A LOT WITH HOW YOU HAD DID THINGS BEFORE. YOU LOOKED OUT FOR YOUR FRIENDS AS WELL ALWAYS UPLIFTING THEM TO A HIGHER LEVEL. EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE BEEN GONE FOR A FEW MONTHS, YOU STILL HAVE A LOT TO DO WITH WHAT GOES ON TODAY. MANY PEOPLE THAT ARE CLOSEST TO YOU WANT TO FINISH THE PROJECTS YOU STARTED BEFORE YOUR PASSING.SO I HOPE THOSE THINGS WILL GET DONE FOR SURE. ONE LOVE PEACE
July 11, 2006
YOU HAVE TRULY GOOD FRIENDS AND FAMILY, YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD OF YOUR BOY SLIM SHADY, FOR REPRESENTING YOU DURING THE BET AWARDS. DURING HIS PERFORMANCE WITH BUSTA RHYMES, JUST AS HE HAD LOST A FRIEND THEY BOTH REMEMBERED THEIR FRIENDS AND THE CAUSE AND EFFECT, YOU STILL HAVE ON THEM TODAY. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME EITHER HAD SPOKEN ON THERE TRUE FRIENDS. WHEN WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT CLOSE TO US, IT IS HARD TO MOVE ON.THEY UNDERSTOOD US IN WAYS NOBODY ELSE COULD.SO NOW YOU CAN DEFINITELY LOOK OUT FOR ALL OF DETROIT, YOU CAN ALSO BE A GUIDE FOR YOUR FAMILY IN HIP-HOP AS WELL.CAUSE HAVING HUMOR AND ALSO HAVING FUN, IS SO IMPORTANT IN LIFE TODAY.WE OFTEN TAKE LIFE TO SERIOUSLY,AND DO NOT ALWAYS APPRECIATE THE PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES UNTIL THERE GONE.ONE LOVE PEACE.

~*~*~*~ FOREVER LOVED AND MISSED BY ALL YOUR FRIENDS FAMILY AND FANS....~*~*~*~
July 03, 2006
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Rest in peace my friend, I will see you again one day. I will miss you always.

I have been avoiding this, I cant accept what I know is true, I cant even say it. I miss you, there are so many things that remind me of you, Spongebob, Kangol Hats, Music in General. I seen the back of someone who dressed like you, I walked faster so I could see the front of him, I knew it wasn't you, but for some reason I needed to check. I imagined it was you and imagined what I would say to you if I got a chance to say goodbye for the last time and my mind went blank, I pictured my last goodbye scilent, over a game of pool, & I let you win. lol, I love you Proof your my "Twin Brother" something's missing,... it's you!

To the family and Friends of Deshaun D Holton my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

God Bless,

He was like my big brother. His name is David Walker. I loved him sooooo much. Well just know that he will be lookin down on you always and dont think of him as gone but just resting and on a mission for God.
May 20, 2006

Nasaan,Nyeem,Katieva,Elija and Deshaun jr.,i wish i could add the 6th but it wasn't meant to be i guess..how can i ever deal with not having you at least tell me silly rhymes on the phone??? It's gonna be so hard baby..You were the heart of Detroit and although you partly knew it..you'd be so proud now to see the impact..we just all needed you longer..Love you "Chris Rock"

Go rest now precious one,
Your life in eternity has just begun.
Now you can walk, your legs are brand
new.
All of heaven is now in your view.

Look all around,it's all in your sight,
There will never be another dark night.
Flowers and jewels, the street of pure gold,and all of the things that have been told.

I can just imagine the smile on your face as you walk all around in that beautiful place.
Greeting our loved ones as you walk along,while singing heaven's most beautiful song.

This is so very hard,but it will all be okay,it isn't goodbye,we'll see you one day.
We love you and we'll miss you and at times it will be tough,but as with everything,God's grace will be enough.

April 27, 2006
rip proof um leaving this because em's my farorite rapper
April 27, 2006
It is very hard to know that one of the many rap artists such as Deshaun "Proof" Holton is gone. There is a reason why God took him away from everybody he loved. God only takes people with him because they are good people. May God bless his family, the D12 family and Eminem's family for this tragic news in the hip hop world.
April 27, 2006
WE WILL ALSO REMEMBER YOU IN OUR HEARTS AND SOUL. GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU THAT WHY HE TOOK YOU FROM THIS WORLD. GOD GOING TO BLESS YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. SAY HELLO TO THE LORD FOR ME.

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

April 26, 2006

April 25, 2006
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

My name is Leah Ellis and I was shocked to hear of this tragic event. I was a total fan of the music he shared with the world. He was a very talented young brother.I remember when D12 first came out. I thought that it was many different personalities in the group that made the whole group "work"! I believe that his music inspired a little bit of every one that ever came across his path. I want to send my deepest prayers to his family.. I will never forget him as one of his fans. He will be missed, but always in my heart. God bless the family.I'm so sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Leah Ellis
April 23, 2006

Down 94 from the ‘Zoo’ to the ‘D’
I send my condolences and deepest sympathy
Amidst of went down at Triple C
America lost you-an icon, a friend, or family

A life cut too short
For some strange reason
And loved ones and fans left behind
May feel like god committed treason

But god wanted you home
Your soul returned to heaven
And the only thing we know
Is he chose four/eleven

You are and will be missed
But your sprit and music will live forever
And when everyone’s done being pissed
They’ll realize you are somewhere far more better

Your search for Jerry G.
You have now found
We all know you legends, are rockin’ ‘n rappin’
Up in those clouds

A legend you are
And I hope that you knew
A man from Detroit
Deshaun Holton…a.k.a. “Proof”

R.I.P.

To family and friends of “Proof”, I hope you know and are proud of him and know how much he’s had an impact and is loved even by strangers. This has been a terrible loss to all but my heart goes out to family and friends that knew him as Deshaun. May peace be with you and yours, god bless.

I will continue to pray for your family's strength. The Jones Family.

April 18, 2006
I remember the call I received when Aaliyah past away and the call about you. I just wish I would have come to the studio when I got back from Cali and we worked on some tracks like we talked about but I took for granted there would be plenty of time for that. My greatest memory is that you were always a perfect gentleman with a big Koolaid smile and would always kiss my hand as if I were Royalty (the kind of respect my Granny would say a man would give a lady back in the day). To your family, friends, and fans I pray that GOD gives us strength to endure, to D-12 and Iron Fist please complete your projects with the same drive as "P" would have wanted you to. To "P" You were trully a Detroit Hip Hop ICON in are community keeping Detroit right in the mix in whatever you did or wherever you went. I am sadden that you had to leave before Detroit really had a chance to have it's reign in the Hip Hop Industry. Maybe God wanted you to be closer to him, make him laugh and make some music for him. Let there be Peace in you Rest for you and all who knew you !!!!!!!!!!
April 18, 2006
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

My thoughts and prayers to Proof's family. I know how hard it is to lose someone so very close and loved so very dearly. I suddenly lost my only child, my 20 year old son in 2002. The pain never ends, and neither do the beautiful memories. Keep those memories forever in your heart and talk about the good times as often as possible. Count each moment, not as one away from Proof, but one moment closer to being with him again. May God Bless You!

My heart, love, and condolences go out to all of Proof's family, friends, and associates. I am a big fan of Eminem and D12 and was devastated to hear that Proof has left us. It just seems like yesterday when I was at Comerica Park for the Anger Management 3 Tour and saw Proof on stage with Eminem giving a concert of a lifetime. Proof was a tremendous artist, father, and man and he always represented Detroit with class and respect. I, like a lot of D12 fans, will miss Proof very very much. I LOVE YOU PROOF! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DID FOR DETROIT AND FOR HIP-HOP! R.I.P.
April 14, 2006
Well its a real sad loss to the hip hop community and i gotta say you will be missed. We will all lite one up for ya. Proof was my favorite member of D12 and always will be. Your soul remains in ur family, friends, and fans so one love man and rest in peace..

Lord, God
you are attentive to the voice of our pleading.
Let us find in your Son comfort in our sadness,
certainty in our doubt,
and courage to live through this hour.
Make our faith strong through Christ our Lord.

Lord,
Deshaun is gone now from this earthly dwelling,
and has left behind those who mourn his absence.
Grant that we may hold his memory dear,
never bitter for what we have lost
nor in regret for the past,
but always in hope of the eternal kingdom
where you will bring us together again.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

April 11, 2006
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
