Not sure what to say?

I remember one time we were getting ready for school and we started fighting over the iron. We had a knock down drag’um up style. Growing up at 2208 San Carlos Pomona, ca 91767 wasn’t ALL bad


Heaven has called upon you today,
leaving so many words left to say.
But now it's too late, for your time has come.
Words unspoken - I am sure everybody has some.
Regrets and wishes are probably there too,
but lasting forever are memories of you.
I was there when you needed a place to stay,
just like you would be there for me night or day.
There have been many times that we disagreed,
but we were there for each other in time of...

I am elated I got to see u one last time. We shall meet again on that, as my grandmother used to stay, on that great getting up morning.
Regina I u and to remember all of the good times u and Eli had will lighten your load of a heavy heart, in time. RIP ELI
