Ahhhh Brother, this is so crazy to me that it's going on 8 years that you've been gone! You would've been 41 today! This time has flown by but it still feels like yesterday - the moment you left us! We don't cherish moments sometimes until we're somehow forced to - so I can I think of a million I wish moments but I choose this day to wish I could hear you sing again! You got so much better, yes I'm finally coming clean, but I would give everything to hear you sound bad again! I'm singing happy birthday to you today, I love you like only a sister can, thank you for the bond I'll always cherish! Love Meq

This would have been your 40th birthday brother! I so wish you were here, you'd be as sharp as a tack, smelling good and badly singing, lol! Most of all, you'd be celebrating life! My heart still aches but your memories provide peace to my soul! HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY, LOVE YOU!

Just sitting here looking at the date. November 9th, we lost you November 19th, a date I won't soon forget. We can truly celebrate your life and not struggle with the day we lost you while still acknowledging your transition from this world. It truly is hard to say goodbye and I refuse to say it, instead I'm saying I miss seeing and talking to you. I will cherish the pics, videos and sound bites!
Love you, MeQ

It's memorial day everybody having bbq's & I swear I would do anything 2 have you hear eating, drinking and making everybody laugh. Our family isn't the same without you, nobody talks or hang out or even care how they used 2. I just miss u soo much, I swear it shouldn't have been u... I LUV U BRO

Mont, just stopping by here because you were so heavy on my mind. We are all shocked by Anthony's death and it's so piercing because it seems like it was just yesterday that we lost you. I'm praying that his family will have the same support we had. He was right there, standing with us when we felt like we couldn't stand anymore. May both your souls be at peace. Love and miss you both!

3 years, 5 days since you left us and 3 years to the date we were left with no choice but to release your smile and accept that we would never lay eyes on you again. It's bittersweet because we can all be grateful for everything God has done for us but it's heartbreaking to not have you here sharing in it all. Just want you to know you're on my heart. Love you tons!

Wow Mont!
I'm sooo missing you!!!!! As I move to another chapter in my life, I'm wishing you were here. I remember telling you and God that He has to send me someone because I was sure I wouldn't cope without you! God is faithful to his promises and he has truly blessed me with a man so much like you, you would be proud. I'm overjoyed also sad that you can't share with us in the celebration. Know that you are on my mind and in my heart so as I walk to my future I know you will be smiling on me! I love you and miss you tremendously!

Just considering God and His goodness. Considering the short time that I knew you and the many laughs that I had as a result of knowing you. Just thinking of the beautiful wife that I was blessed and honor to know because of you. Moreover, thinking of how wonderful my good girlfriend MeQ is and all the love that she has for you. I don't know what lies ahead, but God has promised eternal life. I know that we will be changed, but I hope to recognize you then. Blessings & Peace to those that remain, with Love, Anthea

It was April 1986, I had just came home from having minor surgery, So I'm moving around kinda slow. Getting the kids clothes together for school the next day. Lamont was going on 11yrs. He was trying to help me with their stuff. So when the next day came they got up to get dress for school. He brushed Sherod and Marqell hair. He took the time to try to rebraid ShameQua's hair.(he did it underhanded and did'nt braid the hair to the end, he added barrettes to match her outfit) When I came out of the bathroom to do Meq's hair he said,"we don't have time for you to redo her hair ma,we gotta go so we want be late". So they put on their coats and went on their way. i got to tell you Meq hair looked liked Pipi Longstocking but it was combed. (Smile)

Hey son, I had a tender moment on Sat.3/13/10. I saw a reflection of your handsome face and you were sitting on the side of my bed just looking at me and smiling.

God gave us a gift we really didn’t deserve
He equipped you with talents to lend and serve
You could do so many things; we may have had to wait
Of course you’d get it done, you’d just be running late
No sweeter spirit did anyone possess
You’d give us all you had and nothing less
Your smile had a way of swallowing us in
You always had a joke to make us laugh again and again
You thought God gave you the gift to sing
We’d remind you often that wasn’t your calling
Nevertheless, you’d still break out with a song
Nobody could tell you your tone wasn’t strong
You were always meek and had your own way to teach
God allowed you to cross many to impact and reach
Why your season was so short, we’ll never understand.
God’s purposes and plans are never in our hands
We won’t wreck our brains to try to figure it out
We’ll never know why you had to this route
God doesn’t make mistakes; He has all dominion and power
I’ll love you and miss you every year, every day, every hour!

LOVE YOU ALWAYS, SHAMEQUA

11 months and a day has come and it still feels as if it was just yesterday. I am still getting
encouraging words to uplift me about you and your
life. How you was such a good man, friend, and the best "go-to-guy". Just call my man, Mont or Big Daddy, he'll hook a brother up. Just let him know what you need or looking for. I still get calls now and then from people trying to reach you for a hook up. We miss you and LOVE you
so much with all our hearts.
I wish you could see your niece/god baby she is a mess. She look at your pictures on the shirts and the obituary and just be laugh youing as if you are playing with her. Life has changed so much especially for your loved ones. Makiya and Kamiya says you were there best uncle and they wish you could come back. I know that your nephews Kavori and Trevon misses those great hair
cuts and linings you gave out. I can go on and on but I,m going stop right here for now.

Love you, Mom

Wow Mont, 11 months since you've been gone!!! I still can't believe it, never would've imagined that I would come this far! Boy, I'm missing you like crazy! Every time I hear the song "No Air," I think of you, that's what it feels like...like its so hard to breath without you! I'm still very empty inside and can't figure out what to do with myself at times. Still praying for healing and peace.... and so God is faithful to continuously bring all of us through! I love you with an everlasting love!!!

Hey it's me, your loving mom. We are missing you so much. It's hard to believe that your depart-
ure from us has really made us stronger. Not just to your family but to all that got the pleasure to meet, mingle, and know you as a person. Especially those whom you really let into your world. It's not a day or night that goes by that you're not in our thoughts. One morning last week about 2:30 a.m. I couldn't fall back to sleep. I was watching the old school videos and saw Tupac "Keep Your Head Up" That made me cry because I know Tupac was your boy. I saw so many of the ones you like I even saw "Cry No More". I guess I'm saying this to say every little thing in some way form or fashion reminds me of you and your being. I can truly admit that I have never met a "true man" like you, I am so PROUD of you.
LOVING AND MISSING YOU

I'm reminiscing on the the last birthday card you gave me, such a beautiful card that really gave me insight into how you viewed me! It was so comforting and I'll never forget how you pulled me in and hugged me! That was my last embrace and I will remember it for the rest of my days! Guess the lesson is to hug, kiss and squeeze because you never know when it will be your last one. Love you and miss you abundantly!!!

September 14th, 2009
As these months goes by and another day arises,
I can't help but to wonder what our lives would've been like with you still in our lives. I made some of your favorite dishes and found myself waiting for a phone call from you.I was
looking through some of those cards you gave me and they always make me smile because of what you said. Each one was worded differently but
all basically meant the same in the end. When I
am out with the kids they see a jeep like yours and they say "lock down" that means thats raw.
We are still mesmerized about the wedding and all of your accomplishments. Your life has had
such an impact on others it's unbelieveable. We
Love and Miss you so much

Kavori and I are still having a rough time but God is a keeper! You know how Kavori would always ask you why you laugh the way you do, well now he'd use all his savings to buy your laugh if he could! Love you always!

What's up NEPHEW!

Last week Darryl and I was listening to some old school music. We were reminscing about the kind of music you like, the concerts we went to together or enjoying each other company. I miss you popping in on US from time to time. Or calling you whenever we cook, because I knew you were my personal (leftover king). Miss you and talk with you soon.

What's up Big fella, this is yo lil bro. If I could ask one thing, I'd ask you to tell Martin Luther King Jr. hello, at least shake his hand for me, cause can,t nobody lie to me and tell me that you didn't make it to HEAVEN. Just in case you are truly missing us all and I know you are, just know that we all LOVE and miss you too. We all will meet up again someday. I'm glad you got a chance to read my letter that I wrote
you before you left us cause I couldn't remember when the last time I said I LOVE YOU or even saw your face. I really miss you man... I am defi-nitely keeping my head up. I plan to hold the family down upon my release. Most of all, treat my future wife the same way you loved and treat-ed yours. I promise to embrace Tenesha with the same Love and Respect that I have for you.
I remember in September of 1996, you got me out
of an altercation with Lacreasha Alexander. You
told me to never hit a woman and to always give
her the same love and respect we'd give our Mo-
ther. cause we'd go crazy if someone disrespect
our Mom. You couldn't stress it enough. So with
your kind,respectful ways with women, and overall
personality. You teaching me how to cut hair, your will to draw and be creative,and your amaz-
ing sense of humor. I'll keep it inside of me &
everywhere I go you'll be right there with me. I
PROMISE WITH ALL MY HEART.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE ALWAYS SHEROD

Lamont, I was holding my baby this morning and it hurt so much knowing that she'll never get the chance to see you... Here it is going on four months since you left me, and I still don't understand it... I know it's wrong but everyday I find myself wondering why the people who were with you that day had to live and you didn't...
I guess I can't understand because you were so strong to me. I thought of you as my Superman, and that nothing or no one could harm you. It just hurt so much not being able to call and ask stupid stuff like you had google hooked up to you. I miss you coming up to Makiya school checking on us (making sure we were straight as you always said). I just want you to come back so bad... I miss you sooo much.....

LAMONT, it just doesn't seem fair that we won't get the opportunity to be graced by your many ta-lents that you possessed. Like your comedic abi-lity, your businessman attitude, your artistic side,your serenades, your mechanical skills, your
valued opinions and advice, your where to go or where to get item(s) at a discount or a very rea-sonable rate, your EBONY/JET attire,your walking on the ball of your feet,your MACY'S scents,your
well manicured hands, your HUGS and KISSES. your
signature SMILE, your trademark tongue to the side and your gestures you did with your hands
(especially wiith those 3 fingers), and last but
not least your WARM HEART and your GENOROSITY and KINDESS. I still can't fully UNDERSTAND why
your family and friends have to be deprived of your GREATNESS and TENDER LOVE

YOU ARE DEARLY MISSED,SON

With every passing moment,day and month our wounds and broken hearts are continuously healing. For the last 2 months there have been many wonderful stories of you exchanged,they were from infancy to your adulthood. These stories were very exciting,enjoyable,heartwarming and of course quite interesting. We honor and Thank God for allowing us our time with you. We Miss your physical presence and we are eternally grateful for your devotion.Thanks for the lasting memories and impressions that were placed on our hearts and minds.

Hey big bro, I know I haven't wrote in a while but I just haven't been able to bring myself too.
I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that i'll never get to hear that laugh of yours, or see your big smile. But on a brighter note I know GOD has you nestled away in the V.I.P section of Heaven. (Knowing you, you probably started re-decorating). I've experienced death before but it never has hurt as much as this, maybe because I never realized how special you were until it was too late. It's not a day that goes by that Makiya & Kamiya don't mention you, and i'm so grateful that they had a chance to witness a true ANGEL walk this earth. I love you & I miss you dearly.

While reflecting last night, I just wept. Kavori is saying, "mommy, you're still crying" and I let him know that it still hurts because your presence in missed! Today, I can't help but remember all the great people that paved the way for so many of us. Yes, you are definitely in that number. Universally, we all know Martin Luther King and Barack Obama so we can celebrate with gratitude for what we know they've done to shape us as a people and our future. You, we all know on a smaller scale but the impact is just the same, extraordinary. So along with our other great leaders, I salute you for being the incredible person in our lives! We will never forget their works and yours will always be embedded in our hearts. Thanks for being you, trust that it has an everlasting impression on my heart! Loving u, missing u, and celebrating u!

What's going on son, your momma here. It's been 2 whole long months since your homegoing. Today were reflecting back on Martin Luther King Jr. B-day and also preparations are in place for us to witness a great historical moment in our history.
We will be able to see for the 1st time in our lives a BLACK man become President of the United States. As MR.BARACK H.OBAMA becomes our country leader I can't help but to remember that you cast
your vote proudly on Nov. 2, 2008 to help this become an historical moment in our lives. I am so you happy that you had the opportunity to see this in your short lifetime. Duck is having a ga-thering at his house to celebrate, nothing real big and fancy. I'll stop by for a minute or two before we go bowling. It won't be the same with-out you. Wish you could join us

Hey Lamont,

It's Laverne, I never thought that I could miss you as much as I still miss Eva and AC. Your death has effected me in that very same way. It still hurts a whole lot, but I know that you are in a much better place now...With our Lord and savior Jesus. I know that God is taking really good care of you now. No more worries,hurts or pain, you're free now and that's good. I know that one day I'll be able to see you again. I can look at all of your pictures and not cry any more sad tears, they are all gone away now. You're always on my mind. I can still see your big beautiful smile, that's been a big help for me. I took you for granted, I thought that I would have you around for a long time. You showed me your love for me in so many ways, I'll Never forget it or you. Now I have to find another favorite nephew. You were always the life of all of our parties. Your presence is being missed. There's no one else like you!! You've gone too soon, I know it was your time to be with the Lord. God needed you for another job or special task that only you could do, so I won't be mad or selfish...I'll except our lost because I know that God doesn't make any mistakes. I'm looking forward to that great day when we will reunite,laugh, eat and have fun again. Thanks for some of the best times of my life. What a great treat you have given to me. I thank God for you! What a great man you became. I'm glad I got the opportunity to enjoy being around you. You make us all proud. Thanks for all the good memories. I would do or give God anything just to have you back into our lives. It's just not the same without you around. I'll always miss you. You've touched my life in a great way. I hate that the good die young or far too soon. So I'll live my life to the fullest and I won't take anything or anyone for granted again. I guess life is really too short huh? Time waits for no man so The saying is true "Live, Laugh and Love" I'll see you in heaven one day okay...be good and get me a good spot in line, I want the hook up and a big LV purse from ya *wink* One for the road okay Dawg....I'll Holla hugs and kisses

Hey,hey,hey, it's mom again. Yeah I know it's been a minute ,but I'm here. The new year has came in with some very cold weather and some very difficult changes. Mainly having to face the realization that your presence shall only be a mere image of our imagination or forced to be stuck with our everlasting memories of your beautiful smile and being. I don't know about anyone else but for me it's a hell-of-a battle to endure. If I could have had a chose or say so in the matter I'd rather suffer a toothache for a year than to have LOST YOU FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I know that there are gonna be days where we feel like we just can't make it and some that may feel like it's okay. Even though we know we can't let our tragedy keep us from moving in a positive direction and getting back on track with our daily lives, sometimes it's just not so easy for some of us. But we keep hearing your positve sayings "pull yourself up it's gonna be alright" or "come on man, you can't cry over spilled milk, let it go". So I'm being a big girl and even manning up {smile) from time to time. I know I'll grow even stronger just remem-bering how you never let things get you down or stress you. For the most part I'm coming around and I know it's gonna be alright. Thank GOD and you Lamont for your daily dosage of encourage-ment,love,strength, and ability to keep me go-ing on a daily basis. If I learned anything from your death it's to always be there for your fami-ly,take care of your business,stay true to your-self no matter what,treat people like you want to be treated, and not to take your loved ones or friends for granted,and last but not least be THANKFUL and GRATEFUL for the things that GOD has BLESSED us with {meaning anything,especially the smallest things in life that we easily over look} Love Mom

pbI remember when you first started school and it rained. You was looking
like you wanted to cry. I ask you what was wrong and you said my clothes
was gonna get dirty. I kept trying to tell you that it would be alright
and that I can wash them. You said that nasty stuff from the rain was
gonna get on your shoes and pants and leave those polka dots on them. So
you suggested I carry you across the street or put bags on your shoes. So I put the bags on your shoes and we went on to school. When we got there, you didn't want to sit on the rug because it was dirty and the kids feet was too from walking. I was about to lay hands on a brother, until I realized you was trying to keep your clothes nice and neat. So I
convinced you to sit on your hands so your pants wouldn't get dirty. You
set like that for the 2 yrs you was at the CPC. I guess you were so use
to me changing your clothes 2 and 3 times a day. When you finally made it to kindergarten you were able to sit in the chairs at the tables and
you were alright. You had started to develop a sense of style even at 5
yrs old. You had to always match from head to toe, even the underwear &
socks. If I laid something out for you to put on and it had more than 3 colors you'd cry and try to co-ordinate an outfit by changing the pants
shirt or shoes. Telling me that was too many colors and the kids would
laugh at you,that you was a big boy, and could match clothes real good
by your self. So I gave in and let you show off your skills and I must
admit, you were right. Your grandma Eva had brought you some jeans and
you liked them a lot, you pulled them out with a blue shirt trimmed in
white like the stitching in your pants, grabbed your all blue shoes and
I ironed your clothes and off we went. It just amazes me how that side
of you never changed. Every time I saw you it was like you were dressed
to impress or was about to be interviewed for something. You always matched from head-to-toe be it work clothes(Carpentry),casual wear, or as you put it getting duggy(Sharp-as-a-tack). You were 1 of those people
who looked good in anything you put on. It took you a minute to step out
into bolder colors like pink, red, and even different hues of purples. I
admired you and was very proud of you, Especially your true character &
how you carried and conducted yourself. I told you B4 how much respect I
had 4 you. I am so glad that our relationship was not just a mom/son but
a friend also. We learned a lot from each other. THANK YOU SON for turn-
ing out the way you did. You represented for the NWs.
LOVE YOU,MOM

Hey Lamont

It's me again.We began the year 2008 with you,
but before it ended you were gone,we miss you dearly. This is the third day of this brand new year (2009),and with each year time brings about a change. Although this is '09 some how I'm still stuck in 2008. We did have some wonderful days, while sitting here I recall your beautiful wedding. Looking back I know that we all were looking forward to it,It was a wonderful day. Before Nov 19th '08 I exercised faithfully 60 to 90 minutes per day - 7 days a week. However since Nov 19th I've been unable to do a simple mountain pose or a deep breathing exercise. So I sit here listening to your voice whispering to me It's Gonna Be Alright
(one of your favorite phrase), Saying you got to stay healthy for yourself and to help take care of the others. So, I picked myself up and grabbed Rusty's leash and we went for a 15 minute walk, came back home and did 30 minutes of cardio. Thanks Lamont for giving me the courage and the push that I needed to motivate myself, because in your words It's Gonna Be Alright.
Love you my son.

Daddy I remeber when you took us to six flags.Me and Lamont were so excited to go.But we really didn't know where we were going until we got thier.As we walked through the doors there were no words foir how me and lil Lamont were feeling we were amased.When we were on the superman ride as were going for land off you you just had a brillant smile.As you know I was scared you would ask me ("what are you scared of ?")and you held my hand through the whole ride.But as we were getting off the ride you sent for me to go with Tenesha on a ride and you and Lamont went on the BATMAN RIDE.bUT ON ALL OF THE THE OTHER RIDES we just had a good time together.Or what about when you and Lil Lamont got on the giant drop and as you were going up you were saying "yeah baby yeah" and the people were lookin at you and laughing.That was the best time ever.That we spent together .
Deja Sims (daughter)
January 3rd, 2009
Wow, 2008 is gone, what a year? Lamont, I truly believe that 2008 was so strategic for you as a person and you transitioning. Who could have imagined the sequence of things happening! God knows everything and as his people, we only know in part. If we would have known that we'd have you for such a short season we all can think of a million things we could have said and did. In a conversation with Laverne, she reminded me that Jesus lived 33 years! Look at what he was able to accomplish then I look at you and your life. You did so many things that you wanted to do while impacting tons of people in the process. I feel in my heart that you never had to live with regrets because you always took the chances placed before you. How many of us can say that. As we embark on a new year with endless possibilities, God has allowed us to see THIS DAY so we have purpose and destiny. Our charge is to live like we'll never see another day-loving hard and fulfilling our purpose. Thank you, my brother for imparting the desire to be spontaneous and take risks just to see what God has in store. Through my tears, I'm loving you so much and I'll miss you this year and forever!

Hey Lamont


Well we managed our 1st X-MAS without your appearance but your presence and your fond memories were certainly there. We love and are missing you. It was a day of tears and reflections. Tears because we lone for you, and reflecting on the impact you had and made on each of our lives. Your life has been a matter of milestones and momements. I thank God that we as a family have express nothing but love, concern and strength for one another. I'm grateful that we've had one another to lean on.

Whenever I'm at your home I miss your hospitality. I miss your offering and making sure that I'm comfortable. I Miss Your Hey How You Doing?

Things have changed and Life is certainly different, so we continue to push forward with heavy hearts. This has truly been a bumpy road. We give Praises to God who bears our burden daily and for allowing you in our lives.

I love and miss you this Christmas!

Lamont we're trying to maintain and keep busy so
that we can get through our 1st Christmas without
your priceless smile and presence. I don't know
how we are gonna pull this off or what tomorrow has to offer, but I can assure you that we will
be thinking about you all the day long. probably
even imitating some of your dance moves,telling some of your stories, or just reflecting back on
you and your life, or just being grateful that
God placed you in our lives for various reasons.
Of course we'll have a moment of silence for you
and even a special prayer because WE MISS AND LOVE YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH.. Even though a lot of tears may have been have trickled down our sad faces some were tears of joy. But we are gonna do our best to hold it down and together 4
you. For the ones who went out to shop for the
perfect gift, or to buy the food that's gonna be
on the menu for that Xmas feast,and that last
minute rush gift, we miss shopping with "HUSTLE
MAN". Lord knows you are missed in a million &
one ways. You were our go to guy. You need to
send us someone to network with so we can get our
bargains back on.{SMILES}

Never thought this day would come and you didn't either. I think everyday why? Why my sister had to be the one? Lamont never hurted anyone. So why? Don't think of it in a bad way, think that God called him to another misson it's not to hurt you. I would keep you in my prayers and I hope it lift your spirit. Because I don't like see you crying. I want you to know I love you even if I don't express it the way I should!

It is never easy to say goodbye...
no matter how you
prepare for this day,
it never lessens the pain.
Know that many thoughts of
love are with you always.

With Sympathy

From your Lil sister: I love you! In time everything will be alright. Imagine him in palace with nothing to worry about.

I will keep you in my prayers!!

Now that you're gone, we feel lost inside and we are trying to figure a way to live without you. Each day we hold on to your memories and although, we cry, we still laugh and smile at the thoughts of you. You were so full of life and that's a lesson we can all learn from you. Sometimes life doesn't go according to our plans and we dont' understand why. For God has the plan. The hurting never lessens,it only hurt less often.

TENESHA, I won't lie and tell you that I know how you're feeling, because I truly don't. All I know is that what you and LAMONT shared and what you all meant to each other. What you all shared take the average person a lifetime to ob-
tain. But you all accompliced it in less than 9
years. AWESOME. I know that there isn't too much we as humans can do or say to fill that void
or pain in your heart right now. But I just want you to know that you are LOVED and we are pray-
ing that you will find a way to deal with this
tragedy. So that you can begin to put back the pieces of your shatttered world. Grow stronger
everyday and ask GOD for daily strenghth to see
you through this. I know the sadness is unbear-
able but baby hang in there our darkness will be
made bright again one day.

LOVE YOU,EMMA

Yesterday made 1 month since your precious life was brutally taken from you and us. Us meaning all of your loving family and friends. It feels like it just happened. I don't know when nor do
I know how long it's gonna take for us to really
except the fact that you will never be around to
grace us with your UNIQUE STYLE AND YOU SPECIAL
WAY OF SPREADING LOVE. LAMONT it's almost unbear-able. Every little thing reminds me of you, in some way or another. The PAIN in our hearts and
the VOID that we were forced to face is nothing
that I could have ever IMAGINED. I'm praying that
GOD gives us all the STRENGHTH to carry on and try to pull our lives back TOGETHER. Just trying to get through on a day-to-day basis can be so
overwhelming. But, because of who you were and what you meant to a lot of people, we're gonna
deal with our emotions as best that we could and
FOREVER REMEMBER YOU. We will also keep in mind
your motto "HELP THAT YOU CAN, THAT YOU CAN'T "F"
IT" and "WHY STRESS YOURSELF WORRYING ABOUT THINGS WE HAVE NO CONTROL OF". They say people deal with death and grief differently and that there is no set time period for mourning a Loved One. Be that as it may, it doesn't lessen the PAIN any. LORD just let us get through the rest of this year so that we can start our HEALING PROCESS. HOPEFULLY, we can begin to rebuild and restructure our LIVES in a POSITIVE way.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU,SON

It's been 1 month (4 weeks) snd it's been a struggle, you were such an impact on our lives. Sometimes it extremely difficult to advance to the nex step, but some how we manage the strength to lift up that foot to press forward. However, there are times when I need a shoved. Oh how you are missed, you were important to many
A trillon times we'll miss you
A trillon times we'll cry
If love alone could saved you
You would have never died
In death we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
In our hearts you hold a place
No other could ever fill

There's a saying that time heals all pain, and
helps us to forget. But times so far has only proved how much we miss you. Yet, God gave us the strenth to endure, and the courage to stand the blows.

When it seemed that our loss was too great to bear, we looked up and our friends were there. With flowers and words, written and spoken, with faces smiling and hears open. You comforted us and shared our grief, God will bless and keep you, granting all relief. Our gratitude can not be adequately expressed,with mere words, but they are the best,that we have to offer.We Thank You for lifting the clouds and letting the sunshine through.

Tensha,
Some men leave their mark on the world by the way they live and the difference they make in the lives they touch. Let each tear that falls be a gentle reminder that you and your husband truly loved each other, and made such a meaningful difference in each other's lives- and that is a gift that no loss and sorrow, of time or distance can ever take away.

May the memories that you have kept in your heart wrap you in comfort and bring you to a special peace. "Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves".
"Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself and he himself will sustain you".
Many bereaved ones Tenesha, have found talking a helpful release to a trusted friend,writing for some who find it difficult to talk about their feelings. Crying aslo serves as an emotional release. " For everything there is an appointed time, even...a time to weep. Tears of grief are nothing to be embarrassed about.
Tenesha it would be more helpful to pour out your feeling to God who promises "to comfort our hearts". With Deep Sympathy

We're given many gifts as we go through life. Some we're allowed to enjoy for a long time, others only briefly. But each gift has the power to change us, enrich us, to make us better
people. In your sadness, may there also be joy that you had such a person to love. With sympathy

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod thy staff they comfort me.

The night it happened you came to me. I feel you were preparing me. You knew Nesha and I were very close. I felt you were giving me strength to take care of Nesha. There are no words to describe how I'm feeling. I can't shake this one. I ask God why, why Lamont. I am not understanding this. I remember 3 years ago when we were having our homes bulit. We had so many dreams and plans. I remember our last vacation together Valentines weekend. We went away to Galena,we had so much fun.I am still thinking you are going to come and ring the doorbell. You would always say Tamika where's Mark? Or u would come over and play the video game with Trevon. Trevon misses u so much u were his friend,playmate and his uncle. On November, 19 2008 our world was shattered. Our family and friends lost a great man. I'm blessed God gave me the honor of being your sister in law. When I go to bed at night I tell myself it's a bad dream. When I awake Im so sad, my heart is so heavy. How do we go on without u? How do we breath without you? I pray for peace. I pray for strength and I pray for forgiveness. I know you wouldn't want us to be upset and angry. Your favorite line was it's ok. I know u are ok because u are in heaven. I will never,never ever forget you. You will always be in my heart. We love u, but God loves u more. I love u so much.

When our loss
fills us with sorrow,d
when tears
express our heart's

God's comfort comes

When we reflect upon
the mysteries of life
and ther wonders of heaven-
hopes abides.

As God's comfort comes
we have the assurance
of His loving care
and an abiding peace
that is beyond all understanding.

As hope lives within us,
we carry the certain expectation
of good things to come
and the promise
of seeing ou loved one again.

Tenesha,
There's a saying tha God never gives us more
burdens than we can bear.... And if that's true,
then God must think you are very, very strong because this surely haven't been an easy time for you.
I wish there was a way to shelter you from pain and unhappiness. But all I can do is be there for you & keep you in prayers.
You are a child of God. He made you.He loves you and he will never forsake you.... that I know
for sure. So hang on, keep the faith, and know that you are loved.

This is a prayer that Lamont always repeated and we wanted to share it, because we now need it for strength and comfort.

Prayer for Serenity

God, grant us the serenity
to accept the things we cannot change,
the couurge to change the things we can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time,
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardship as a pathway to peace;
taking, as Jesus did,
this sinful world as it is,
not as we would have it;
trust that You will make all things right
if we surrender to your will;
so that we may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with you forever....

I remember walking through the mall with YOU looking at outfits. The moment I got ready to purchase my items... You told me to put them back because YOU had another spot. From that moment on. I haven't shop at the MALL since. You have turn me on from knock-offs to bootlegs clothes. I remember the slogan you would always say "Who going to know if it's a knock-off or bootleg". You always kept it real with ME. Over the last five years I haven't look back, because I knew YOU always had a hook-up from clothes, shoes, movies, cars, from link cards to gift cards. I don't miss shopping at the mall, but I'm going to miss shopping with YOU. Put me an outfit to the side, YOU know my size and what I like. In your words, let's get SUITED AND BOOTED.

Hey, it's me again. Just having one of those precious moments, thinking about you. I was listening to some dusty records earlier and came by Shamequa's. She was on the computer and was playing her music. I heard a lot of your songs.
Music by Jodeci, R Kelly, Jagged Edge, and Sam Cooke just to name a few. I heard a real old song of yours , "Cry No More", by 2 D Extreme. I remember how we would sit back and wait for Apollo to come on, just to see who would be per-
forming and to see the acts. When we first saw Jaheim you said, "that boy could sing if he don't win I ain't never watching this no more".
Sure enough he won at least 4 weeks in a row. He
went on and landed a record deal. You said, Jaheim and Avant was a beast in the music biz".
Right you was again. You always did have a keen
sense for fashion,music,people,and life. I can
go on and on because I have a lifetime of memo-
ries of you. Just felt like sharing this one.
I LOVE AND MISS YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH

I'm looking at the pictures and reminiscing about how much FUN everyone had during rehearsal, wedding and reception. Thank YOU for loving TENESHA in your own special way (unconditional). When I first met YOU I always felt like you were my NEPHEW. So from that day that's what I've always called YOU. I know your name is Lamont, but I just felt like NEPHEW sound better to me. Thank YOU for sharing a part of your life with me. It's so hard to say goodbye, so I won't. I'll talk to you soon....

I have to tell my last car story where Mont came to my rescue!

I must say that at the time my car was going crazy and the gas hand was fluctuating so I couldn't tell how much gas was in there. So I was leaving work and heading to the gas station. Barely a block away from my job, my car stops. I'm thinking its the cold because I pulled off before the car had a chance to warm up. It also just so happens to be the coldest day of that year. The police came and pushed my car out the way so I called Mont and of course he was on his way with Anthony (our family mechanic, lol). In the meantime, I didn't want to leave my car but my frostbitten hands and feet said otherwise, lol! Tenesha was around the corner from me so she came to rescue me from the cold while the guys checked my car out. They tried several things to get the car started but to no avail. So I checked in with them and Mont said "I don't think its any gas in this car" but I assured him that it was so they tried some other things but it still wouldn't start. Mont said again, except not as nice as the first time, "Man, I don't think its any gas in this car", I reluctantly assured him again that it was. He went to get a little gas just to see if that would work. What do you know, it did! I felt like a penny with a hole in it, lol. He politely yelled, "Man, I knew it wasn't no gas in this %#@!*%#@!*% car!

He would always save me when I did something stupid that girls do to cars. He would never mind helping me but that day I'm sure he could have missed that phone call! I had the opportunity to have him accompany me when I got my other car this year and yes, he did let me know where I could get the brand new car at a cheaper price so we fought together with the sales guy to get it at my price with some extra perks! I guess I'll have to keep this car forever now!

I love you Mont, you have to send someone else to give me jumps, bring me gas and help me pick out new cars!

I rememeber when I first met you, you looked me up and down and said, "you cute, but not as cute as Stevie said you were", and then laughed. I couldn't believe you said that. So I kicked you in the leg and you told me, " I better keep my feet to myself and use them for what they were made for". I thought I wasn't gonna be able to stand you, but it was the opposite, we got along great. From that point on you were always around. I should have said all this then, but I guess it's better late then never. Thank you for coming to my high school luncheon, thank you for coming to my high school graduation, thank you for helping me pick out my graduation outfit, thank you for coming to my graduation dinner, thank you for picking me up from school when I almost went to jail for fighting (BIG DADDY to the rescue)and thank you for celebrating my 21st birthday with us. I will always remember the last time I saw yu. You gave me a chain with a Tiffany's locket and said "since I didn't have a gift for your baby I'm gonna give a gift to the person who brought him here". I told you that was sooo nice , while I stood there surprised. I asked was it free? and you said "yeah, you act like I never gave you nothing" and I laughed. I told you thank you and I really appreciated that. Not knowing that would be the last time I would see you. Well I could go on and on about good times, even though I was only your cousins' girlfriend, you made feel like family. So I'm gonna say I love you and miss you cousin. LOVE ASIA

Its so hard to get back into the swing of things! You were such a big part of our everyday so our daily commitments are difficult to fulfill now. So many thoughts are running through my head and I don't know when I'll get back to sleeping a full night but I'm confident that God will take care of all of us.
I wrote this poem a while ago and how appropriate now:

If I could explain all the emotions in my heart
I would have to summarize it or else I wouldn't know where to start
At times there's love, joy, strength and peace
but then there's moments of hurt, pain, confusion and dis-ease
It's no question about how I'd like to feel all the time
Unfortunately, I can't control the cards I'm dealt or else I'd change it at the drop of a dime
What does it feel like when you know that you're happy?
Do you jump on a rollercoaster when your days are going crappy?
There has to be a wonderful medium
Where all the sadness ends and you can locate freedom
We're built to endure all obstacles and trials
Not to retreat to our dungeons or go in to exile
I think if we knew that every time there's an explosion
We'd be like an anchor, planted and there would be no destruction
Nobody's saying you should always feel warm and fuzzy
but that you should choose how your day ends up and it should always be lovely!

This is truly hard but when we can focus on what you brought to our lives and what you did for us by just being you, we'll be having lovely days in no time. Loving you forever Mont!

Lamont,
We were truly blessed to have had the privilege of having you as a part of our lives. I'm grateful that God allowed your road to cross with Tenesha, and during that intersection a fantastic love developed, for God united you as one. I'm deeply honored that the special person you chose as your significant other was my daughter. Although your life together as one was brief,it was sweet,for the love that you two shared some will never know or experience in a life time. I'm grateful that she found in you an excellent provider,a strong protector,a loyal friend,a dynamic lover and most of all an awesome hunsband her soul mate. This was a world that belong to the both of you. Although your life was snatched from us, your thoughts and memories lives in our hearts forever. So, now we learn a way to pick up the pieces and continue. We ask God for his strength as we travel this journey with you in our hearts. We'll MISS your big laugh and your bubbly smile. Continue to be the wind beneath Tenesha's wings. We LOVE YOU. Rest....

To my nephew and friend Lamont (Big Daddy)
True friendship is something that is hard to find, one must be trustworthy, considerate and kind. We had love for each other like we were brothers, And whenever in trouble could count on each other. Always willing to listen to what each other had to say, Could call the other on the telephone anytime, night or day. You always defended my name no matter the cost, Stood by me in battle, sharing victory or loss. You went out on a limb sometimes to save my skin, I combined all the above and it equaled up to you being a true friend. I don't have you now although it doesn't mean i will never see you again. You never decieved me, so just like life, in death you'll be my friend forever.
BIG DADDY, I WILL LOVE YOU MAN, IM GOING TO MISS YOU.

My name is Mr. Warren or "The Big Guy" some might say Today we'll keep it simple and just call me "jay"

I remembered when you came to my grandma house as soon as you stepped in the door you would say "hey hey hey everbody." Your big bright smile would light up the whole room. I'm going to really miss your big smile.

I'm going to miss all the purses,and clothes you gave me. And most of all I'm going to miss the way you LOVED and CARED for my cousin,Tenesha.

I remember when I had just had you, the doctor said" Ma'am here's yo boy" and I responded naw doc you got the wrong baby cause my boy wasn't that color. He said what do you mean, I said my boy was grey and white. She said mom we cleaned the baby up a little . If the cord wasn't still attached I probably would be still arguing with th doctor.

Remember when I couldn't help but ask if Lamont sings or if he ever wanted to be a radio DJ/personality cos I said he just had "that" voice & had a fun personality? ... & you told me to not let him get started...lol

Remember when...even though Lamont & Jason only met that day on the work cruise, they hit it off & were comfortable enough to do a remake of the famous Titanic pose? We were all cracking up, we had tears in our eyes!!!

Tenesha,

I never got a chance to meet you, but I've known Lamont since he was in elementary school with my brother. You had one of the good guys, a loyal brother. I'm praying for your strength in this time of sorrow. Know that the Lord will bring you through, it will be a process, but trust in the Lord he will comfort your heart.
Venus Fitzpatrick (Chevez's Sister)
November 24th, 2008
Tenesha, Remember whenever you needed Lamont, you would call him and he would come running to get his baby, no questions asked.

And remember when you had a flat tire, we looked and there he was fixing it. We look at each other and said, "now that's a good man." lol

I also told him one day, no matter what she say, that girl love you.

They say you never really miss someone until they're gone & it breaks my heart to say that it's true.It's tearing me up thinking about all the times we were in the same place and I didn't hug you goodbye or tell you how much you meant to me or how much I truly loved you. Just Friday I keep replaying the last thing I said to you when you were paying for your pizza bout to leave. I said see you later mont tell buddy I said hi.In hind sight I should have told you I love you & gave you a big hug.I can't do it now but I promise I will hug your kids & Buddy every chance I get for you.And don't worry I will stay strong for our family through this tough time. I love you more than words can say.This isn't goodbye just see you later for now.

Lamont you were filled with laughter & joy. I liked you always even more when you made my cousin happy. She deserved to be happy and you made that happen. My last memory of you was 3 days before God called you home. You was holding my baby Candice and feeding her pizza and she was pulling on your sunglasses. Now you’re holding the angelica angels from up above. You were a great guy!
May you rest in peace!

I am truly grateful that GOD sent Tenesha. You were truly the happiest you had ever been in your life with her. And for that I will always love her. She will always be my sister NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!

God only knows how I feel right now. I've had you for 30 years and now you're gone. If God gave me the power to bring you back, I simply would. No words can express the pain, I don't know how to move on without you. Who am I going to call! That's been the question wrecking my mind since you laid there lifeless! The peace of God that surpasses all understanding will help all of us overcome and conquer what the enemy has meant for bad! God reigns supreme over everything and we know that you are in more than capable hands! He's able to bring us through and we'll have peace knowing that God ways are higher than our ways, as well as his thoughts so our complete trust is in Him to bring us to a place joy and rest!!!
