We are very sad over the loss of VoVo, and know he will be missed. He was always so respectful and you knew his children were the highlight of his life. Not many young men have the passion he had to be a responsible parent. To Thomas, Gayle and family, we are praying for the strength of God to carry and sustain you.

I watched you grow from a lil boy to a young man. I will never forget the day when I seen you out Ridley circle walking with a cute Lil baby girl I asked you who baby did you steal and you replied she was yours I was so shocked cause I could still picture you in the back yard/field playing football with your cousins and friends out 21st in Dickerson Courts. R.I.P VoVo and my PRAYERS are with the Family.
