The Broken Chain
We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.
To Tony, Angel, Nicey & Family: Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers as prepare to say, “So long” to one so dear. Your father was one of my very best friends and I will miss him tremendously. He had a special love for his children and his family. So just know that his love for you will never depart, always keep him in your heart. He is now resting with the Best-Jesus and he is at peace. May God comfort and keep each of you as only He can.
My sincere condolences and prayers are with all of during this sorrowful moment in time.I am truly sorry for your loss.The world has lost an exceptional and amazingly awesome man,but Heaven has gained a great man of standards.Know that God has each of you in the hollow of His hand,giving love,peace,and joy of comfort to all of you.Blessings and Love

I will NEVER forget how special Uncle George was/is to our family. He was our rock, our historian, our patriarch. He had so much love for all of us! It’s my hope that we can all remain close and continue to celebrate his life, together♥️
1 month ago today I lost you, I really believed you was coming home. I was getting everything ready for you. You said you was doing better and I thought being in rehab was the next step for you to come home. I miss you sooo much, I miss our talks on just about everything,I miss how excited you’d be every time you saw me. I miss hearing you call me baby, I love you more daddy and I always will.
Happy birthday daddy, I love and miss you so much ❤️
