To live is Christ (winning) and to die is gain (winning). LaTanza professed Jesus Christ as Lordship over her life. She praised and worshipped Christ with the fruit of her lips, in song and dance. She loved to sing songs of Zion with the earthly choir-now she is rejoicing and singing with the heavenly choir. We will truly miss her smile, care, compassions and concerns that she displayed to others. To DaVaughn, Arnetta, Arletta and all family and friends we are praying for you all.

Be Blessed and Encouraged

From Ivanhoe Elementary to now is a long time to know a person. You never changed and stayed genuine. I looked back at our text when we talked about the trip and things I was dealing with and you understood. You will definitely be missed. This shows that you don't have to hang out 24/7 to say that someone is a friend.

I'm still in shock. I remember Meka from our childhood. Her aunt Diane Wilson was my mom's best friend and we always played together as kids with Kelly. She was a gud friend and very sweet. Our families were close. I'm so sorry to hear bout her passing. God gained a beautiful angel and she will be missed. My deepest condolences goes out to her family and the Wilson family. Rest easy my friend.
