Destiney's Mother, Billie Jo, is my Aunt By way of her first marriage-that's why she has the last name of Stokes. Whenever I had an interaction with Destiney at family gatherings, she would always make me laugh-I see she had that effect on all her friends, too. Gone from this world way too soon like her sister Roxie. My love and sympathy goes out to her close family and friends. Sincerely, Cuzzin Kathryn Ryan Sauer, daughter of Dee and Jean Stokes Ryan

I just learned that You passed away!!! Destiney and I have known each other since high school. She always brought warmth and sense of comfort. We had an unbreakable bond. I’m not good with words. I’m very sad right now but I know she would not want anyone to spiral. Destiny, I will see you in my dreams. Come see me anytime mama. Love you.

Destiny & I grew up in the victory homes together she lived at 44 Congress and I lived it 79 Senate drive. We loved skateland. I also babysat for her sister Roxi. Miss that lady too.
Then I get married and move and who's my neighbor destiny my x used to tease me that my girlfriend was there to borrow sugar. Then we both ended up moving back into the victory homes. I'm proud to call you my friend. God speed my friend. 💔✌️🙏🏼 See you on the other side 💙

I met Destiny years ago at Skateland. Then years later she was my neighbor down the street! I haven’t seen her in a while but whenever I did she would always stop and talk and we’d catch up on everything going on in our lives! She was such a kind and caring person! She had so much more life to live! I’m truly sorry for her mom and all her family and friends! Sending my love and prayers! She will be so tremendously missed! RIH Des ❤️🙏🏼
