Auntie never told when me and Craig walked down the railroad tracks, and crossed over the roadways to get some desperately needed water. (When I was thirsty she gave me something to drink...to the extent that you did it to the least of these my brothers, you did it for me...)

Our deepest sympathy and condolences go out to my big cousins and little cousins, and to my Great uncles. Our prayers are with the entire family. Love Daverick, Angie and Knaylen.
