Hey Dad! It’s your youngest daughter Sabrina. How you doing up there? I know you are having a ball in Heaven. You are so loved down here on earth but God wanted you back by its side. I can only envision you walking towards your mom and others as they give you a standing ovation for a job well done. Want you to know I am so proud of you! So happy to have had you as my father. We are some lucky ladies to have been loved by you. I want you to enjoy yourself and reap all the glory you deserve. I love you soooooo much and happy you are at peace and no longer have to be in pain. You were literally the real MVP on earth! Until we meet again O.G., we will just have to communicate in dreams. Love you forever!
Good morning Duck, you will always be in my heart and I want to thank you for all that you have done. Rest in peace and know that you will be missed and loved.
Hi daddy! It took me some time to write my message to you because I can’t wrap my human brain around the fact that your not here(physically here) anymore. You were one of the reasons why I breath, woke up for the next day, try to do better in anything I could. It hurts, my heart aches for you everyday dad. The love you gave to my sisters and I is extraordinary and no amount of money, or material things can hold a candle to you. I wish you realized here on earth how loved, beautiful, and important are. You and I had the same type of sense of humor and taste in tv shows. We used to watch Divorce court, Hardcore pawn shop, Iyanla Vanzant, Snap, and many more. You were more than my father you were my best friend. I loved to be around you, we didn’t even needed to speak your presence was enough. I feel so lost without you now! No more wake up calls, no more weather updates, no more no fish around calls/text(no stranger danger), or I just love you text. Sheryl, Sonya, and Sabrina love you to the moon and beyond. I hope you know that even in the afterlife. I am happy for the fact that your not in pain or restricted in anyway anymore! Your finally are free with your mother(hi grandma), bother, and friends. And for that I am happy for you. Show us that your still around watching over us from time to time. Until I see you again you’ll live in my heart. Love you (OG) from Bucky ❤❤
