To my cousin Anthony. May you rest in peace. The memory I will most remember when you were at your brother's funeral and you called my name and gave me a big hug. That meant a lot to me. Thank you.

I can remember always being around Anthony and the other siblings as they grew. Myrtis would tell Anthony, do your dance, it was called the screwball, he would light up and go. He wasn't two years old yet. I baby set. him and his siblings Mary and I, along with Nedra. I was with them often on Easter & Mother's Day, visiting Mrs. Taylor, his maternal Grandmother. We shared loads of fun times. Anthony will be greatly missed. No more Pain. Absent from the Earthly Body is to be Present with the Lord. According to God's Word. Peaceful Rest.
