It's been a hell of a ride these last couple of months. We said our goodbyes, we loved on you til they took you away. We're built strong and we'll be okay later, but today my heart is heavy. My logic says you're so much better now, but my heart is crying for my mom.
I love you always

My heart is heavy. I wish to express sincere gratitude for the privilege of knowing Mrs. Sharon (Ma). When I was young, one of my best friends in the world (Colton Rogers) introduced me to this amazing woman who accepted me as I was and treated me like a son of hers. But not only me, the whole gang of friends we were; Jeremy “J-Bird” Hypolite, Vince “Scooter” Hector, Bradley “B. F.” Fontenot, Colton “Chop” Rogers, and me, Jodd “Angel” Reed. It’s been a very long time since I’ve seen or even spoken to her, but I always remember the days she kept us straight when we were headed for disasters and forgave us when we didn’t avoid them. My condolences to the family. Pop, Colton, Shane, Coy, and Michelle, my prayers are with you. Rest In Peace Ma.
