We will remember you in the stories to tell of the old days when life was oh so sweet..13th St.corner with Teen Tyler playing his drums and music and the old school basketball, Vista Tones, Soul Brother Plus at the army and Mosley Heights softball. The joy we had. Only if we had a second chance... the struggle is over. RIP... God knows best and make no mistakes.

We are sending prayers to the family of Morris Monroe during the loss of your loved one. We have had the pleasure of meeting Morris at the home of Sterling and Angela Monroe (my beloved brother-in-law and sister). He was a very nice person and we know that there will be a void in your family that cannot be replaced.

Please accept our heartfelt condolences and may the passage of time heal your grief. God will put no more on you than you can bear.

Da, it still feels like this isn’t real. It’s hard to process that you’re gone. It’s hard to imagine you’re not in this World anymore, but I know your suffering has ended...I have so many memories of you. The one that sticks out the most is of you walking me down the aisle. That’s all I wanted..I was so proud having MY daddy give me away to the man I love. I will never forget the love and pride I felt when I saw you in your tux ready to walk with me to start a new chapter in my life. I love you dearly and miss you so much! Now rest, you fought hard... just rest..
