All my life I’ve always been proud to say that I have 7 brothers. I’m not the youngest in our family but am the youngest of the girls (3), and I will always remember how my brothers took care of me, especially the older ones, Monce, You (Tony), Marshall and Mike. Mom would tell me stories of how you wouldn’t let her spank me. I could be a little spoiled at times, but always glad to know you had my back. You introduced me to Solid Rock in Corpus Christi, that’s where I learned of the Holy Spirit, and my life has never been the same since. While living in Houston, I journeyed to many Mission Trips with North Central Church, where you helped me either with finances or prayer, thank you for your obedience. I know God has used you in many ways with our family and with many others as well. I will miss you Brother. Say Hi to Mom, Dad, and our brothers that have gone before you (Monce, Mike). Till we see you again.......Love you, Yvette

Thank you brother for introducing me to the Holy Spirit. It was that glorious day that changed my walk with the lord. I will forever be grateful. You always kept giving and blessing my walk. I remember you the day I received a check in the mail to support me on a journey to visit the prisons. It meant so much to me. I know the desires of your heart were to share Jesus with our family and that each one of us would receive salvation. Thank you for being a brother that loved us and always wanted the best. I rejoice in knowing we will see each other again. Love you! Your sister
