When we woke up on Wednesday, June 17th, I never knew our lives would change so drastically.
God realized that this day was different from any other. There is no reason Malana and I should have traveled to Charleston with you on that day. But we wanted to spend quality time with you, in such a special way. Who knew when we say in the office, the unthinkable would occur? But as I sit back and reflect, I am so grateful to God that he gave us the time to spend on that day. You meant so much to me and the girls. You were our world. I do not know how to think about moving forward, but I know I must. I have tried to be strong for the girls, but this is so hard for all of us! You promised me you would never leave me! You promised me we would watch our children grow, get married, and have children of their own. You promised me that we would grow old together, and spend our latter years without the demands of the Church or the State. I feel robbed, cheated, and cut shot. I feel badly that our girls will never have the father to watch them grow. But I am thankful for one consolation that your life was not in vain. You taught us through your example that we must trust God in all things. Today, tomorrow, and in the days to come, we will believe that God will make a way for us! We believe that God used you to be a beacon of hope to tranform our family, the Church, the State, and our world. We believe that your life mattered. It mattered to us, and it will forever change the culture and mindset of the world. You were our hero and now you are our Angel. Watch over us in the coming days. Guide and direct us to follow the proper ways. Inspire us through a rainbow to believe that hope is still alive. Encourage us through a songbird that our love will never die. I will not let go of what we shared. The memories of our life together will comfort through the years. Love, Your wife, soul mate, confidant, and friend
To My Daddy:
When someone love you they care
Even if they are not there
They motivate you to prosper and believe
In any of your dreams
They watch over you day and night
To make you are doing alright
They believe in you and treat you well
And I may not show it but he wont care
This person I am talking about here today
Is my dear father who passed away
And although he may be gone
He's there with me all day and night long
I will always remember and love you.
I know you were shot at the Church and you went to Heaven!
I love you so much!
I know you love me and I know that you know that I love you too.
You have done so much for me.
I can't say it all. You will be watching over me and you will be in my heart. I love you!
Love your baby girl and grasshopper,
