For the memory of my "CUZ" Timmy, I am so sorry this posting is late, you and I grew up together. Every time I came to Toledo for the summers from Detroit, we were the Original "Ride or Dies". We would fight as kids tooth and nail, but would go after others if ever someone bothered either one of us. I remember you coming over Big Mama's house on Nebraska Ave. to spend the night and we would just hangout day after day. Getting in trouble together, trying to get each other out of trouble that we knew we were wrong for. You driving up to Detroit from time to time just because you had a taste for "White Castle Hamburgers". I know that God chose you for a reason, and even though none will know and we had not talked in a very long time, I know you had me on your mind & you are always on mine. I will miss you dearly, I will always love you, we were more brother & sister than cousins and nobody will ever or can say different. Keeping your family lifted up in Prayer, knowing that God had a plan, has a plan and it is all for our good. I will Love you to Life, till we meet again on the other side.

Love Your Cousin
