My handsome nephew Jalen, words can't express the pain I'm feeling. The family will not be the same without your presence. Auntie Peewee and cousin Christena and Breon will tuck our love for you deep down in our hearts. I sometimes wonder if there was anything I could have done differently. You were a son/nephew half to me for many years, so it's like I lost a son. I want you to know that I will continue to love you and we shall cross paths again some day. See u at the crossroads baby. ❤
