From: Cecilia and Anthony Hedgespeth Jr.
We are praying for our family sorry we couldn't be there in person to lend a shoulder to lean on.Hopefully we will be able to come visit this year. Love you all
R.I.P. Muta, I didn't know you that well but when I did meet you in South Carolina at my uncle's funeral, you was a very cool dude and you even gave me a ride back up this way and I will never forget that. I will keep your wife and kids in my prayers!
Forgiving, accepting, kind and wise, what more can one really say. I inspire to become half the man that you are, you forgave my wrongs and taught me right, you accepted me as is throughout the darkest night, you showed me kindliness and guidance through your wise words, writing this have to be one of the hardest ways to say my goodbyes. Living in your presences was truly a blessing, in this cove of inspirations, admirations and self value you instilled, I will take this with me, along with many many memories, knowing that I was love, What it is to love. You dad would most certainly be missed. I love you.
May God give each of you comfort as you deal with the loss of your husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend.
Dad I'm so sorry I never got the chance to tell you how much I loved you and how proud I was of all your accomplishments. I know wherever you are you can hear me, so I want to tell you that you were my HERO and I'll LOVE YOU ALWAYS!!
You still can't convince me that I'm signing a guest book for you. Just knew that you would be here forever saying "Angieeeeeeeeee" or calling me early in the morning to remind to do something and not getting off the phone until you knew that I would no longer be able to fall back asleep. This hurts so bad words can't even begin to describe it. I know you're looking down saying man up "you're more thorough than the boys". I'm trying Baldilocks I promise I am. I love you so much and I will miss you forever and a day. Watch over us. <3
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.

You left way too soon, but I know that you are in a better place. You will be truly missed. I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!
