I taught with "Ms. Henry" at James Monroe. We all called each other by our last names! I remember her as a very kind, caring person. She loved the students and gave her best to each one that entered her classroom. I am sorry to learn of her passing and I send my sympathy to all of her family and friends. May you all have peace and comfort. Anne Rainey

I don't have any specific story to tell per se 

I just remember as a young girl being excited to visit my cousins in NYC.

I would always remember looking up to Diane she wasn't just my older cousin. Eugene was big cuz-- but I would imagine her like my big sister because I always wanted a big sister.

And how beautiful she was with her almond eyes and thick beautiful long locs. I said to myself I'm gonna let my hair grow that long and be as beautiful and creative and cool as my cousin DD. One day.

Rest in peace beautiful. You are truly missed. 

Love Always,
-Ayanna
