You to me was the role model of what a man shielding and protecting his daughter should’ve been… I’m saddened that I didn’t get to see you when you were weak and not well but I’m thankful for the memories that exist only in my mind of you and that’s being the strong man /godfather I’ve ALWAYS known you to be….You will never be Forgotten and Always Loved by me Thank you for loving my Aunt Mayland Thank you for Loving Me …Wishing you were still here but glad you’re no longer in pain YOUR GODDAUGHTER DONA!!!!
