Tiffany, my first born and my baby girl you will be missed however, embedded in my heart. I know you are flying high with your dad and your beloved grandma and for that it brings me comfort and a bit of peace.

Beautiful Tiffany. When I think of you, I think of “strength.” Such a strong young lady… in the midst of all the challenges that came your way, you were such a “blessing” during all the time you helped me with watching Dara. And oh, how my Mom was so proud of YOU. Once she taught you to crochet, you took it to an entirely different level!!! And how grateful your Baltimore family was to be there to se you off for your Senior Prom. But now you can REST. No more sickness. I know you are SMILING with “Dad” Thank You Tiffany for being apart of our life. We love you and now want you to Rest in Peace

Special Angel in Heaven There’s a special Angel in Heaven That is a part of me. It is not where I wanted her She was here but just a moment Like a nighttime shooting star And though she is in Heaven, She isn’t very far. She touched the heart of many Like an Angels can. I would’ve held her every minute If I’d only known God’s plan. So, I send this special message To the Heavens up above. Please take care of my Angel And send her all our Love
Love you always Bay & Jordan
God is able to take the mess out of our past and turn it into a message. He takes the trials and test and turn them into a testimony.
