To: My Strong Man
I want to start by saying Famous and I Angel Lorraine Dockter, Mother of Gabriel his only son, have been together for 24 years. What we both always knew no matter what phase or circumstances a relationship maybe with standing, when you really love someone you never stop loving each other. There is always that Love in Your Heart for that person.
Famous you gave me the best 24 years of my life. We shared so many memories & laughs, this book couldn't hold them all.
When we first met at our family gathering at my mom and dad's home, you fit right in so perfectly. You were meant to be part of our family. It was so easy for my sister, my brother Tony (one of your best friends), and my mom and dad to accept you as a brother and a son "You Belonged To Us" We were your family. You sent everyday and Holidays we us Blessing us with your laughs, jokes, and knowledge.
You were truly One Of A Kind Famous. You took my son Joseph at the age of 4, and embraced him as your own. According to everyone Joe was your son. That is a REAL MAN, who takes his woman's son in and nourishes him with love and care.
Then along came our Little Surprise Gabriel, "Lil MAC" I remember the second Gabriel was born, the tears of Joy on your face were priceless.You could not take your eyes or hands off of our baby boy.
I will never forget the way you looked at my and said " This is the first time I've had tears of joy, & I thank you for this great moment in my life." I felt so Honored and proud to hear him tell me that.
I am proud and honored to know that both our boys will pass on the memories & legacy of their father. Joe will continue to pass the strength love and closeness to future generations of the Dockter family as we stand today in memory of Famous.
Gabriel will carry and pass on his fathers name & spirit as future generations of Famous Mc Elwee will continue to live in honor of his father.
As my Strong Man would say "Only the strong survive" May the Dockter and Mc Elwee family Live Strong Forever"
Gabriel, & Joe
