Dedra - I was a daddy's girl as well, and will always be. However, I can testify that 12 years later, God has seen me through the rough times. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about him and the morals and values that he left with me. God and time will heal all wounds. Cry when you need to - Release is good. Be encouraged cousin :) Love You - Evette

Dad, I love you soooo much. I am going to miss your smiles, your laughs and just spending time with you. I know I should not be selfish but, I wish you were still here so I can hold you and give you a juicy kiss on your cheek and tell you how much I love you. Your knee baby, Dedra Branch

Fond memories of my Father in law when he visited my home in Virginia. We always shared a cheese cake and always let me know he felt at home when he and my Mother in law visited. Learned from him and his family to say I love you to my family and kids. To this day whenever i travel i always say the prayer that he did when he got on the road and another saying that i repeat constantly through the day that i heard him say which was Lord i thank you. To the family, memories of you are forever engraved in my heart. Thanks for affording me the luxury of knowing you all.
