Gone wayyy to soon for me and my baby Jasia. I never got a chance to tell you,I chose you as her God-Father because of your knowledge,wisdom, and all that brain you had. Never would have thought it would be before you could pass it on to her. You always showed "The Brain Is A Terrible Thing To Waste" It was not my plan," It was God's Plan" Rest On! No More Pain. Love and Gonna Miss You Dearly.
